The Hopewell Angler's Club experienced some really good tuna fishing during thier annual angler's tournament Saturday. We started off fishing around birds and busting fish and caught 3 out of 5 yellowfin in the 50 pound class. Next was a single yellowfin, a small dolphin and then another single yellowfin. Another captain came on the radio and reported that he just hooked 8 bigeye tuna and he was close to our position. As soon as we got there we started what would be a two and a half hour battle with 2 bigeyes. Andy and Ronnie did a great job and we landed both fish. Ronnie's was 149 lbs and Andy's fish was 178 lbs. Out total tuna weight for the day was 547 lbs. Thanks.


We fished 60 miles to the norteast today. We found a real pretty grass line up there and caught a limit of nice size bailer dolphin with a few gaffers mixed in. Later on we saw 1 blue marlin in the spread but he was not interested in what we had to offer! Forgot the camera today......Clark, I got your email, but you didnt leave a return email address. If you have pictures of your catch email them to: Thanks

We fished with Brian McAndrew and his group today. It was a pretty day, calm seas and overcast. We found a piece of "float" and the first dolphin caught around it was a 35lb citation... We worked on the school after that and ended up with a nice catch of dolphin on light tackle. We put the trolling spread back out and then Will released a white marlin before the winds picked up and we headed home. Thanks.

Alice Kelly

We fished the Alice Kelly charity tournament with Michelle and the gang. We hooked a sailfish and after a few jumps he released himself before we could get the leader. We had a good time with the ladies today. Look forward to next year. Thanks

Lots of sailfish action today! We caught and released 3 sailfish on light tackle. The fish had bait balled up and were cutting through it on the surface with thier sails out of the water. Neat to see! We also caught 5 dolphin. Thanks
