Trip Info

The Catch
Shark (Blue)

We left the slip at 5:30am and headed east towards the Baltimore Canyon. 58 miles later we arrived to calm seas and beautiful sunshine. Whales and porpoises were everywhere. We deployed the chum bag and set out a 4 rod spread at various depths with whole bluefish as bait. Over the next 4 hours we caught and released 4 blue sharks averaging between 150-200 lbs. It was a great first trip of the season!!
