Captain's Focus

Posted on August 21, 2020 Lots of MidAtlantic changes as contest ends Friday Though the scales are still open until 9 p.m., there have already been big changes at the MidAtlantic in Cape May plus Ocean City, Maryland. The blue marlin barrier was broken in good fashion as Salty Tiger boated a 489-pounder that may be hard to beat. MJ’s remains secure in tuna with their 189-pounder, but a third bigeye was taken today as Gret’s Three J’s took third at 129 pounds behind The Right Place with a 168. Big Oil’s 77-pound white marlin was dropped back when Blood Money boated a 91-pound white. Lucky Fin took over third at 70 pounds — just ahead of Marli at 69 pounds. Billfisher blew out the dolphin division with a 46-pounder. Christine Marie drops to second at 33 pounds, with No Quarter and Drilllin & Billin both at 32 pounds. Canyon Runner remains alone in wahoo with their 42-pounder. If there are any changes, I’ll fill in during the morning when every boat with a day left will be trying to blast their way into big money. Capt. Ron Santee reported tougher fluking today with his Fishermen from Atlantic Highlands in a strong current, but still had some limits up to a 4.1-pounder. The Jamaica from Brielle had good variety fishing on Wednesday with some limits of bluefish and sea bass along with a pick of fluke, bonito, Spanish mackerel, dolphin and the first inshore little tunny I’ve heard of. Kyan Manuel of Clark won the pool with a 4-pound fluke as larger bonito and little tunny weren’t in the pool.
