    I think they have weighted 9 in Cat over the past week. One for sure yesterday and the day before.

    Nothing in fishing impresses me more than the guys that catch Bluefin off the Bahama Bank. Degree of difficulty, size of the fish, strength of the fish, it's ALL over the top. Congrats to the guys that do it. Ya'll are BAD MEN!!!

    cat cay, south of bimini.

    agree with Intrepid377, it is impressive and need to have a ton of patience and discipline.

    I'm here in Bimini now and the Bulefin hunters are out. Some monsters have been lost right at the boat this week.

    Great fish, but out of season....can't kill em until June 1st (today)....major fine if caught. Suggest someone yanks this post and starts a fresh one with today's date. Again, beautiful fish!

    Heard three were caught earlier this week and released. One 900# and 2 around 700#'s. Merritt crew is there filming the action on 2 of their boats. I was off S Cat Tues and Weds and it was 6-7 sporties in a line heading towards Ocean cay. All WAY up in the towers, looking. Later off Gun 2 were tied up on the back side maybe celebrating!

    Not really, these are trophy category fish over 73" that category is closed for US registered vessels no matter where they fish. Trophy category was closed as of April 7 for all areas south of Latitude 39 degrees 18 munutes North.

    Just be smart and don't post any boat names.
