09/20/15 - Hello Everyone Marlin are here couple days left available for prime dates if you haven't reserved a date they want last 340-775-9982. Tight Lines!

09/15/15 - Wow starting the Sept. moon a little early but with Capt. Jim he is always on the hunt. They head out to the North Drop and John releases his 1st Blue Marlin at 250lb in the Morning and not long after his wife Paula gets hooked up and starts a great fight this one a little larger we think, after several minutes goes by she has about 500 yards of line out, and there has been and still is some weed and the Marlin took off crossing it Capt. Jim believes something cut the line possibly a barnacle in the weed due to new line just being put on, what a heartbreak for Paula and the crew but they were ready Black Pearl goes 1/2 on Blue Marlin. We still have a couple prime dates left for the Sept. Moon don't miss out make your reservations call 340-775-9982.

John's 1st Blue Marlin at about 250+lb Congratulations!


09/08/15 - The North Drop was very quiet today and being 9 days on the back side of the full moon it normally is, but Capt. Jim still believed that if he hunted long enough he would find a marlin and dang if he didn't! After quite a fight, unfortunately the Marlin got off leaving Black Pearl 0/1 but it was a great day everyone had a good time and that's what counts.


09/06/15 - Black Pearl was 0/1 on Blues today it was a nice fish put up a great fight the guest got some great video of the Marlin going crazy jumping according to Capt. Jim can't wait to see it. After a good fight they got her next to the boat and then pulled the hook what a bummer! Oh well sometimes that happens and you go look for the next one, but what is good is the fact they are still there. Fishing St. Thomas doesn't get a whole lot better than that!! Come to the Virgin Islands and experience Marlin fishing on the Famous North Drop.


09/04/15 - Black Pearl still raising the Blues on the North Drop Capt. Jim reports even though they were 0/2 one got sharked after a good fight and the other pulled the hooked. But, they did manage a wahoo out of the deal so they want go hungry anyway. We still have September and October moons left during season if you haven't made your reservations yet time is running out for those prime dates call 340-775-9982. TIGHT LINES!!

09/03/15 - Well Capt. Jim proved his point with the Bananas today after a long day with no sight of a Blue the mood was a little grim around 3:00 p.m. our 1st Mate found bananas in the galley and immediately through them overboard went up on the bridge and told Capt. Jim it wasn't 5 minutes after, and bam hooked up needless to say the Capt. just shook his head in dismay and the charter guest said OK you made a believer out of me! UNREAL never under estimate your Captain. When it says NO BANANAS that's exactly what it means!!!


09/02/15- Things a little slower on the drop today Black Pearl was 0/1 on Blues but everyone had a great time and that's what counts.


08/31/15 - WOW, what a day Black Pearl releases 3/3 Blue Marlin today and 1st Blue Marlin each for these South Carolina boys great job Russell Reynolds 450lb Blue Marlin, Mike Turbeville 350lb Blue Marlin, Wendell Reynolds 400lb Blue Marlin.
