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
