Big girls for a few

Capt. Chris “Sharky” Miles on Kanahoee is continuing his dream run with another three fish at 250, 750 and 950lbs at Linden Bank yesterday. Sharky has certainly been Mr. Consistent this year!

Capt. Daniel Carlson on Little Audrey likewise had a good day with another two fish.  A big one at 943lbs for first time angler Pete, and they also released one about the 200lb mark.

Capt. Haydon Bell on Release headed out wide jumped off a 900lb-er and had two more bites. In closer, Capt. Brad Craft on Castille III caught two at 250 and 400lbs. Capt. Steve Ahlers on Hellraiser went 1 from 2.

And I also heard that Capt. Bobby Jones on the Iceman got one as well.

Update: I just had a report from Capt. Corey Hard on Askari. Corey tells me that they saw three fish yesterday and each one missed until they jumped off a little fish. Finally, deckie extraordinaire Rhys jumped in the chair for the first time and caught a 500lb.Askari owner Shane also sent me this great shot of a big fish they caught earlier in the season (below).
