First Big Drum on a Cork of the Year?
Tuesday, June 13, 2017
Going to be a long week
They are poised to win well over $1million if this fish holds up as the first place fish with 5 more days of fishing to go.
What many don't realize, is now that the pressure is off, Capt. Brian and Marty are very motivated to go catch another one bigger than this one! I have always said that Capt. Brian is the hardest working waterman that I know and this is well deserved.
Congratulations to Marty and Brian and crew of the Run Off!

It's not like a restaurant out there....
Although we did have a blue marlin take a look at one of our teasers and I got some really good sushi off of an oceanic bonito, we never saw another fish or got another bite anywhere in our travels except from the one loan wooden pallet that was "covered up" with dolphin. We landed 16 bailers and gaffers, including my citation 45 pounder before turning it over to a nearby boat and continuing on our fruitless search for billfish.
Meanwhile, the guys on the Bill Collector hooked up to a blue marlin and landed a sailfish, EXACTLY what we were looking for, but they only had a handful of shots at dolphin. Anytime you catch a billfish and hook a blue marlin off the NC coast that's a great day, so both boats had great days, just with the wrong customers. If it were only like a restaurant and you could order up what you want.
Other than a few morning squals, I have seen very few NC offshore days prettier than yesterday
