Back to blue...fin...

After a long cold winter, an equally long cool rainy spring, the OI and its veteran crew were ready to knock off the cobwebs and get back to doing what they do best. A window of opportunity - a sunny day - emerged within an ugly forecast of rain/wind and T-storms. While real blue water is still forming at the edge, their are other fish to find - Bluefin. Off the dock at 3:00, first boat to arrive at 4:30, first boat to hookup at 7:30, fish on the deck at 8:30. Time for a beer.


Thanks to the OTW team for capturing this rare 3rd person perspective...you lookin' good OI...damn good...



76 inch fish ~ 260 lbs

Photographic evidence would suggest that the "Time for a beer" actually preceded the hooking of the fish. But that evidence is highly circumstantial.

Good work Captain and crew. That is a sweet pick. Looked like a perfect day and glad to hear you guys led the way on multiple fronts.

Not to get to academic, but it will be interesting to hear back from you throughout the season on that fishery with the spill and all the other shit going on with those fins.
Last comment, it is almost July and we don't have one striper up on the BFC blog this season...what's going on out there?
