Mid Atlantic Day 3

Our final day (Friday) we ran 85 miles south to the southern rock piles. The action started great as we were 1/2 on whites, had another in the spread and had a few dolphin bites by 10am. We were fishing in 81 degree water in 55-80 fathoms and finding some scratches of bait but mid day was slow. We ended up getting a wahoo to stick to a circle hook and it took plenty of line getting into the braided backing with ease. As we got the fish close you could see the big ol torpedo turn its head and go for another run but as bad luck would have it, the hook pulled. We got back on the troll and pounded out the same general area. We saw a tailing white but never got a bite out of him then we finally got another white Marlin bite around 230. After we got him close to the boat, yet again, another pulled hook only feet from the release. Tough one for sure, and that was it for us for the Mid Atlantic Tournament this season.
