This 159lb Mako shark was caught while fishing in the Poor Man’s Canyon using bluefish on the “No Limit” with Capt. John Azato, John Motley of Pike Creek, DE, Vito DiFrancesco of Wilmington, DE, Mike Baumgartner of Rehoboth, DE and Luke Horney of Hockessin, DE.

Monday was not quite as bad as advertised, but few if any boats fished the ocean or bay. 

Taylor Deemer released the first white marlin of the year on Sunday.  He was fishing in the Baltimore Canyon with Tyler Tribbitt and his dad Ken from their boat Rock On.

Another first was reported from the pier at Cape Henlopen State Park where Lighthouse View Tackle told us the first spot were caught.  A few flounder were also landed.

Tavin Mullen of Milford, DE fished the Judy V. with Capt. Chris Adams, and caught this 2lb and 17 inch flounder using a bucktail tipped with fresh cut blue fish.
