First White Marlin For Delaware Caught
Yesterday Taylor Deemer landed the first white marlin caught by a Delaware boat, the “Rock On”.
They released the white marlin, so it wasn’t brought back to port, but technically it is the first marlin of the season for Delaware. There isn’t an annual cash prize of $11,000 like in Ocean City, but they do get bragging rights. The Ocean City, MD first White Marlin was also landed over the weekend.
Taylor Deemer. “I was on the “Rock On” out of Indian River Marina, Tim Tribbit was the captain and Tyler Tribbit was the leader man. Fish was caught in 68 degree water in 100 fathoms in the Baltimore. The fish ate a ballyhoo skirted with a 8oz white Joe Shute. We also were 4 for 5 on yellowfins in the same area ”
Offshore action is picking up and anglers are getting out there and having a good time catching. A big thresher shark came to the scales over the weekend.
