I am mating for Captain JoJo on the American Lady, which is a 58′ Ocean Yacht, for the White Marlin Open this year and stoked to be down here in Ocean City, Maryland! This tournament is always quite the scene with boats from all over coming to compete, and this year is certainly no different!
Our first day started off slow but we got on the fish good around noon and ended up getting 1 white out of a triple (pulled hooks on the other two). Then we picked up a single White Marlin shortly after for a release. Then we had a double header up and got one to eat for another release After that it went silent for us until 3:15 when we had a white eat the right long and I missed. Ouch, first one of those in awhile, but overall fun day in flat calm water ending 3/6 on whites. Not much weighed in today, so it’s still wide open! We are laying Tuesday due to some steering issues but plan to fish Wednesday and Thursday. Hoping to find THE ONE!!!
