Blue Marlin Season June - October 2016

We've got the Blue's do you?


06/21/16 - Note from the Bridge if you haven't reserved your date/s yet the couple weeks before the full moons of each month during season and a few days on the back side is considered the Prime Bite window. These dates book early espcially with the tournaments taking up some of them. Call in advance to make sure you don't miss out 340-775-9982.

06/18/16 - Black Pearl finally fights one today but they just couldn't hang on to it the marlin pulled the hooked leaving them 0/1 +2. It seems the Marlin are getting a little more aggressive now so hopefully the bite will really turn on because they are here.

06/15/16 - Black Pearl goes 0/0 +2 today on the North Drop wow is all Capt. Jim could say today. The guest had a great time and that's what counts.

06/14/16 - Black Pearl at the last minute goes on a inshore trip for a family and what a great day they had Frank and his wife and kids enjoyed a variety from yellow tale snapper to kingfish and others. Good job guys!

06/13/16 - Black Pearl headed out to the South drop today got word there was some Marlin but, Capt. Jim reports all he found was some lonely Black fin tuna and some bumpy seas.

06/09/16 - Black Pearl goes 0/0 +3 again, Capt. Jim reports one was small others were around 300lb. Good news is the Marlin are here, but they are being very difficult, and just want to play around. I wonder if Link is spending the night on the boat sharpening hooks? LOL Nice try crew and guest.

06/08/16 - Black Pearl goes 0/0 +3 today on Blue Marlin, Capt. Jim reports they were small 150 to 200lb, they grabbed the bait ran a little but didn't hold on. Little suckers were playing around. Nice try crew and guest.

06/07/16 - Black Pearl goes 2/5 today on the N. Drop located in the BVI's, yee ha! Congratulations to Peter Bontekoe & Brandon Lozano each on their 1st Blue Marlin what a day they had. Oh yeah, we didn't forget, yes they took the plunge and went swimming. Don't for get to make your reservations if you haven't the Marlin say we're waiting!
