Today we fished our first day of the Mid Atlantic Tournament. We started fishing in between the Wilmington and Baltimore Canyon on the edge of a color change. It was slow going other then some small mahi and a White Marlin that snagged itself on the MoldCraft Super Chugger, but that didn’t last long as he threw the hook after a few leaps.
With the slow fishing we picked up and made a run. But along the way we came across a pallet in 500 fathoms so we fired out the baits and immediately got into some action with gaffer dolphin. I made some adjustments to the spread to try and target a wahoo as well and we managed to scrape one out of there. After we exhausted catching fish off of the pallet from trolling by about a dozen times we picked up and continued to the 600 fathom lumps in the Baltimore. We managed to get a release on one white Marlin and catch a few more small mahi. Overall fun day and we are going to the scales, but the mahi and wahoo are both in the lower to mid twenties from my estimate. You never know though so we will see what pans out. Back at it again tomorrow and hoping for better Marlin action!
