Captain's Focus

The Beach Haven White Marlin Invitational got off to a slow start on Thursday. The Leaderboard at the time this was written this afternoon only showed yellowfin tuna of 62.4 and 56.1 pounds by Endless Drifter, and a 53.9-pounder for Alyson Rose -- plus single white marlin releases by Tra Sea Ann and Sea Watch, and a likely winner in a 46-pound dolphin by Viking 62. Check my blog for any late entries. Capt. Chris Di Stefano of Wall fished aboard the Crisdel fron Brielle Yacht Club during a two-day trip for the Hoffman's Marina Tournament. Looking for the hot bite reported by the Canyon Runner fleet in Toms Canyon, they had one good hook-up on the troll as owner Frank Criscolo boated a 204-pound bigeye tuna to move into second place behind a 219.2-pounder by Placid C's. However, the only other trolling action was a small yellowfin, while a white marlin didn't hook up. There wasn't a hit chunking overnight, and with nothing doing in a fleet of about 30 boats they ended up finishing at the Bacardi. There was plenty of bait there, but they only trolled small yellowfins and skipjacks. Shaun Jensen of Wish To Fish reported that "last week, we had the pleasure to provide Kelly, whose daughter Mya Lin passed away after battling cancer for 5 years, a day out on the ocean with her son Michael, Mya's brother and their friends. It was another beautiful day spent rejuvenating mind, body and soul while kicking butt catching Fluke!
