10/31/15 - What a way to wrap up Marlin season Stephen Murray has been trying to catch a Blue Marlin for years and has chartered different boats three different times with no luck. So then a friend referred him to Black Pearl and told him Capt. Jim would get it done on the North Drop well nothing like pressure. So they get underway to the drop and the ole girl goes 1/3 + 2 for blue's guess that's a nice trick or treat. Congratulations Stephen and ata boy on that swim that's how ya do it!!

09/30/15 - Black Pearl was 2/2 on blues today and Congratulations to Dan Hixon not only on his 1st Blue Marlin but he caught two on the Famous North Drop. Dan has been fishing all over from Hawaii twice to Mexico to Florida Keys and now down to the Virgin Islands over a 20 year period trying to catch a Blue Marlin. He finally decided to give St. Thomas a try and contacted the Black Pearl and the rest is in the books. He fought the first blue for 1:35 mins. at approx. 400lb and the 2nd beast for 2:20 mins. at a approx. 600lb WOW two nice size beauties and when he encountered them it was on, 20 years of fishing came out!! We are still not sure who had more fun him or his wife dousing him with saltwater making sure we kept the tradition alive way to go!


09/29/15 - Black Pearl was 1/1 on blues and Congratulations to Adam for his 1st Blue Marlin on the North Drop he and his buddy had a great time and the sun shined upon him what a beautiful day!


09/27/15 - Congratulations to Darrell on his 1st Blue Marlin at a whopping 400lb on the Famous North Drop he is from South Carolina and was amazed at the number of hookups we had, Black Pearl went 1/1 on the 2nd day of his charter but after all that we will take it all day long. We had a great time and everyone enjoyed it and that's what it is all about! See their review dated 10/01/15 on Trip Advisor and we are waiting on couple those pictures.


09/25/15 - What can we say about the two buddies Mac & John except they had a great time and Mac caught his 1st Blue Marlin and was over joyed Black Pearl went 1/2 on the N. drop today. Kudo's Mac that's how you do it!!!



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 wife Paula dumping 5 gal. bucket of saltwater water on him keeping the tradition alive!

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