60 Canyon Runner - 7/13-14 - 24 Yellowfin (9 between 50-70) & a Spearfish
Capt. Mark DeBlasio, Capt. John Timken and Capt. Pete Doran had the Mark Novembre/Charles Korb charter out Monday to Tuesday on the 60 Ritchie Howell and put together a heck of a trip. They ran right back to the Spencer Canyon and worked the southeast corner down to the northeast corner of the Wilmington. They found fish hanging right on the break down at the Wilmington and caught a handful of smaller ones before setting up for the night which was uneventful with just a hammerhead.
Tuesday was another story as the BIG yellowfin showed up. They starting picking 1.5 miles north of the northeast corner of the Wilmington around 8am and from 8am to 2pm had 7 big yellowfin in the 50-70 pound class. They also release a nice spearfish which ate a ballyhoo/Ilander combo. They work up to the southeast corner and picked 2 more 50-70 pound yellowfin. They also had another 15 smaller ones.
48 Canyon Runner - 7/15-16 - 19 Yellowfin (4 Nice Ones/1 Mako/1 White Marlin)
Capt. Mark DeCabia and Captain Mike Zajac took the Tom Biliecki charter out on Tuesday to Wednesday and decided to look back at the Hudson Canyon and a great temperature break coming into the 100-square - bad choice. There were no fish in it. So they worked down to the Toms Canyon and picked one 40 yellowfin during the entire afternoon troll. At night they quickly go their mako bite putting a 110 pouder in the boat. Knowing of the hot bite in the Spencer they 8knoted it down the line leaving the Toms at 11pm and ariving in the Spencer at 4pm for the morning troll. Good choice as they picked at another 18 yellowfin with 2 more in the 40-50 pound class. They also releaseed a nice white marlin and missed another plus added a mahi.
