First blue marlin of the season and other news...

I got word from my good friend Capt. Dan Rooks of the Tuna Duck that a Hatteras boat caught the first blue marlin of the season the other day. That is great news...I am fishing the Hatteras Villiage Offshore Open with capt. Dan and his great mate Mike. We have done alot of fishing together but this time it counts! I can't wait.

Take a look at the home page of Offshore Pursuits when you have a chance. There are two important announcements there concerning the regulation of the herring fleet in the NE. Very good news and great work by the whole CHOIR crew.

The bluefin are moving north! Up untill a week or so ago there were acres of 60+ inch fish off Hatteras. Last week the Oregon Inlet fleet was into them. Slow but sure they are making their way up the coast. If what they saw down there this season is an indication of what will happen off Chatham this season it will be a great year.
