The last of tog

Capt Mark from Bluerunner Sportfishing and Waterproof Fishing Intel Service stopped by yesterday to pick up two bags of clam. While here he shared this photo of a 17 pounder from Monday’s trip.

“Monday was a beautiful day. We fished six different wrecks over 25 miles of ocean. We had to work for them. Got our biggest blackfish to date, a 17 pounder. We backed it up with a 10 and a 9 pounder. Some nice sea bass, cod and pollock too. Last chance to get out is now. Go get it!” ~ Capt Mark Blue Runner Sportfishing
