I really can’t understand why my guys our out there all by themselves when the fishing is as good as you can ever experience - but such has been the case the last few days.

In the last three days they released at least 35 bluefins over 73”. On Tuesday the fish bait in the water on our 48 Viking was engulfed by a 91” 450 pound Bluefin that was fought for 3 hours, tagged and swam away nicely. They then spent the rest of the day jigging and popping captuing another 7 bluefins with an over and under to take home and 5 bluefin over 75” to 80” that were tagged and released.

Meanwhile, our second charter fishing with Capt. Denis Ednee of the A-Salt Weapon did non-stop battle with 70-80” fish during the 3 hours while Capt. Mark was hooked up to the 450 pounder. They release 7 of these fish for their days total.

Capt. Mark DeBlasio estimates we tagged approximately 50 bluefins over 73” thus far this season that all swam away nicely so it will be very interesting where these fish show up. (We tagged well over 100 yellowfin last summer and got a bunch of returns back already and funny enough all these fish swam east).

While we are fully booked on our boats there are plenty of great boats available so please call Pirate’s Cove Marina – 252-473-3906 – and get yourself down there. It just doesn’t get better than this at any point of the summer off so you owe it to yourselves to enjoy it.

Thanks for the reports. It sure has been amazing seeing the number of giants being caught this year. Hope these fish head north not east
