Offshore has seen a better than usual showing for marlin this time of year with several blacks making an appearance, some tipping the scales at close to 500lbs. Blacks normally show up in larger numbers in the summer months, so this was a pleasant surprise.

bull dorado

The big fish just keep on coming. Today every boat caught a blue marlin with a total of 19 over the past three days. Tons of monster dorado are keeping both the blue marlin and anglers happy.
