Blue Marlin Abound

Dominican Republic offshore

The REEL TIGHT might not be fishing but that hasn't stopped the fishing here. On Monday 12th the BETSY had 2 blue marlin shots. A minor engine issue would have them down for a few days.

On Tuesday 13th, the ET (another 80' Merritt) want out and found 3 blues but pulled the hooks on them. Wednesday 14th, I was invited to fish with the ET. We caught quite a few nice Dolphin and had a few more blue marlin shots. One fish we almost had the leader on when the hooks pulled. Thursday was even better. The ET fished 'til 1pm and was 4 for 6 on blues. They called in the Betsy who also had 5 shots in the area and caught 1.

The ET has gone home and the Betsy is still fishing. Even with only a few boats fishing around here, there continues to be fish to be had.
