For those fishing off the Mid Atlantic coast you're already aware of the sick white marlin bite. I have pics from the last few weeks of fishing the White Marlin Open, Mid Atlantic and fun fishing the last two weeks which I will put together and post as the hurricane comes, but thought I would post a few cool underwater pics we took from swimming with some whites as they chased the crack minnows all over the place. Simply an amazing sight to see.

A few pics:

It was not a good day to be a white marlin angler with out some live sardines eitherdoh They would look at our baits and pretty much laugh. We did try a fly, but they will would not look. The flies we had on board were not ideal, but now with some close up pics I have of the bait, I am going to tie some up, we'll be back after the hurricane for revenge:cool:

Now that is cool. I heard one boat yesterday had a guy in the water and saw like a hundred while on the surface they only saw 8. Radio chatter. I could hear them fromt he Triple Zero's talking up past the Washington yesterday.

That was us you heard I am sure. Could have been some others in the water, but we did not see them, everyone else was trying to catch them:))

Hey Brandon,

Awesome pics! Give me a ring sometime - I'd like to get/buy a hi-res copy of one of those to frame.

Thanks,
Charley

Thanks for sharing. Unbelievable! Sell them to Marlin Magazine! Great quality. We were out there that day and had a blast. Ended up with 10!

Brandon, could correctly identify the species of bait they were eating?

I am honestly not sure what species of bait. Some of it had brown on top and some of them had a greenish tint on top and they were about as long as your index finger, in general. If you know the species I'm interested in learning.
