Norfolk Canyon 6/20/15

Fished the Norfolk Canyon area with Wally, John and David on 6/20/15. Got some really nice dolphin early in the morning and late in the afternoon. No tuna, went 0/2 on marlin, had a white and a blue marlin briefly hooked. Got a good catch of Blueline tiles around mid day with citations for the crew. Dodged thunderstorms on the way out and on the way back in.

Offshore 4/12/15

Fished some ocean wrecks yesterday for togs w/ Jody, Wally and Ricky, but all we could catch were large seabass. Sea conditions were decent so we ran out to the southern wall of the Norfolk Canyon. Wally and Ricky both got blueline tile over 10lbs and Ricky caught a nice 27″ flounder in 550ft of water

OI Tuna – 3/9/2015

Tough day for us at OI. No BFT for us. Spent most of the day trolling with no luck. Should have jigged marks we saw in the morning. Had to come in early to fix the truck brake line that busted when we put the boat in the water. Will try again.

1/11/2015 Deep Drop

Fished the Ocean Venture and the Norfolk Canyon area yesterday w/ Jody, Wally, Davie and Ricky. 15 Blueline Tile w/ 7 over 10lbs and 1 Golden Tile.  A few large seabass released while trying to jig for bluefish. Several bluefish caught on jigs but nothing over 34 inches. Dog sharks were a pain but not real thick. Ricky hooked a 6ft+ Mako shark at the Ocean Venture with a butterfly jig. Fought the mako for awhile before it broke the main line.

2015 Rockfish

1-2-2014 – Was going to try to run offshore for deep dropping but the weather changed for the worse. So, ran over off the Eastern Shore with Wally to eel for rockfish.  Started off good with the first bite by 0830, but the hook pulled.  Fished with 8/0 circle hooks. Landed the second bite, for a 47″ release citation.  Wally got a 49″ release citation right at the end of the day.  Not a great record with six bites total and only two fish landed, but got a couple citations to start the 2015 season.
