Wednesday was another nice day and it looks like Thursday will be even better.
Ice House Bait and Tackle sent me a report late on Tuesday that the Bobby Smith family fished the Broadkill River with bloodworms and caught some short rockfish and one keeper.
I am getting good reports from Pirate’s Cove and the Oregon Inlet Fishing Center on giant bluefin tuna. A friend of mine fished on the Backlash out of the Fishing Center and brought in a giant bluefin. A boat out of Pirate’s Cove had a 650 pounder.
The way the bluefin regulations read, you can keep one giant per season per boat. You can play catch and release with as many as you can handle.
I have caught a few of these big fish and I can tell you they will wear you out real quick. The ones I caught were on 130-pound gear with a 400-pound top shot. The idea is to keep the fish from taking more than that top shot. I was strapped into a fighting chair and the captain and mate worked as hard as I did. I will say it is an exciting experience.
