2004-07-03 - Harbor Island Fishing Report - charity tournament
Last week the Over Under headed up to Harbor Island to fish a charity tournament benefitting the Dunmore School on the Island. In two days of fishing, 15 boats caught a total of 2 fish over 25#, and both fish (40# tuna) were caught by the same boat. It was the slowest two days of fishing since we arrived in the Bahamas in November. After the second day, the boat headed back south to Rum Cay for a week of R&R and Capt Pete, with mate Tom Brisbin quickly changed their luck and released a 125# Blue Marlin on the way to Rum. At Rum the boat only fished one afternoon, going 1-1 on a 250# Blue Marlin. The rest of the fleet reported slow fishing, and the Over Under crew decided to tangle with Grouper and Sharks on the reef with their pole spears and slings. The fishing really slowed down all around it seems and it is probably a good time to head North for the summer, which is exactly what we are doing right now. The Over Under should be back in it\'s slip at Avalon Point Marina, in Avalon, NJ on July 18th and be getting geared up for the Ocean City White Marlin Open and the Canyon Season ahead. If you are looking for a tournament charter boat, please give the Over Under a call to book your event.
