>> Pual P of BSS, fished Masseys Ditch with his grandchildren Abby 5, Jacob 3, Aiden 2, and Grace 2 years old. They all caught many spot, croaker and even flounder. I think it had to be the new Guy Harvey shirts they were wearing purchased from BSS that gave them the edge to catch all those fish.
>> Capt Trey Parker left at 3 AM to head to the southerly wall of the Baltimore. Water temp was 70 degrees with a small break to 68. Lots of boats were in Baltimore. Worked skirted trolled ballhoo and spreader bars from 800 line into the 60 line. Hooked 7 yellowfin and boated 2. Alot of the tuna are on the small side. Some boats went to the Poormans today including the Muff Diver who caught and released the first blue marlin of the year in 60 Fathoms north of the Poor Mans on the 60 line. Marlin was est. to weigh 350#. Two big eyes were caught today inside the middle of the Baltimore. Baltimore water is not as clean as Poor Mans but seems to be producing more yellowfin then the Pooormans. With the weekened upon us and the MSSA tuna tournament starting today, there is sure to be alot of news hitting the report. Stay tuned for the latest offshore report Capt. Trey Parker
