The morning started out warm and fairly calm but when the wind switched and it got choppy fast. The Offshore boats still got onto the meat. Some of the boats came in early but not before they slung the meat on deck. Release and Sea Creature each released a Blue Marlin. They also had some gaffer Dolphin and a few Wahoo. Some of them had pretty bailer Dolphin, a couple of Yellowfin and Blackfin Tuna and some Spanish Mackerel from calmer water. Because the wind was blowing, the Inshore boats had an excellent Red Drum day.
