Back at it in Hatteras.

The Crew from Baccus Seafood in Hertford, NC on board today.

These guys and gals spend a lot of time on the water but have never been in the ocean.

We went out targeting tuna and found them a nice catch of black fins and a couple of wahoos including a 41 pound citation for Chase!

Greg had our catch of the day though a 338.5 pound blue marlin that we brought back to the dock.

I want to add that I have been doing this nearly 20 years, and have never taken a blue marlin.  We are actually allowed to take one 99" or bigger (lower Jaw Fork Length) per day.

We have released a few hundred billfish on the various Bite Me's over the years and have never put one in the boat.

The party was into it, lets just say, it was time.

a lot of the blue marlin meat will be headed back to Hertford for smoking, and a lot of it was handed around the village for smoking.

It is quite a delicacy, and something we don't get all the time, I am looking forward to it.

When, Cat called his mom to tell him about the day all she said was "bring me a piece of Blue Marlin!"

Great day with a great crew.

Thanks and Congratulations!
