Fishing Report 7/22/16

Written on: July 22nd, 2016 in Fishing Report

Happy Friday! The heat is on for at least the next five days, so try and stay cool. We have our Seafood and Arts Festival here at the marina Saturday, 7/23/16, from 10am-6pm.

We are seeing some good tuna fishing off shore, so give us a call at 302-227-3071 to book a charter trip on one of our charter fleet boats. Call in and ask for Carolyn.

Check out these catches from this week.

Twin sisters Lilly and Sophia Merrick, daughters of Capt. George Merrick, fished on the Boy’s Toy and caught their first blue fin tuna. They were chunking butterfish to catch this 71lb tuna.
