PE Offshore 05/24
Took my buddy Devin on tiny Tim. Started fishing at the 01. Saw a dancing sail with lots of flyers. East swell 2/3, great rip around the 00 line running north and south. Did not follow, too many boats. Continued out, found manowar around the 59 line BIGGG...Blue marlin blowing up baits behind our boat. Got out to the 56 in scattered weed and no boats around found another bird. Fish on nice fish. Gaffed the fish 5 times because the brand new gaff decides to bend at the tip. Stayed around the 57/56 line. Lost an 8 pound cow on the short. Caught two peanuts. Found another bird. This time a giant fish is blowing up on the outrigger- blue marlin. Marlin darts from the back and comes in front of the boat from right to left and goes back towards the lines. Probably a 200 pounder. Blows up on the right outrigger but does not take it. Not interested in hooking them but it was quite a sight. No hits on way in. Boat acted funny on land, idling funny and not spitting water like usual. Time to check it out.
