Today I ran Saltitude, a 52′ Ocean Yacht, for Day 1 of the South Jersey Showdown Tournament. We ran out in a 15 knot SW wind and a 3-5 foot side to sea for the NE Corner of the Wilmington. We fished from 8:30-3:30 and picked at white Marlin throughout the day, raising 9. We released 3, lost 2, and missed 1. The three others never committed. Not bad at all for early July marlin fishing. We even snagged a 49# yellowfin and a mahi for the dinner table. Fun day for sure!
