Capt. Phil Dulanie and Capt. Mark DeCabia had the Damien Romeo charter down at the South Jersey Shark Tournament this past weekend. The crew enjoyed some great shark fishing and more importantly a great time participating in the tournament. This tournament was once again put on with class and professionalism by the folks at South Jersey and we can?t wait to get back again for the Tuna Tournament.

On Friday, the Canyon Runner ran 45 miles due east setting up in beautiful blue/green but crystal clear water. It did not take long until the first bite and the first mako of the year for us. The day saw 3 makos to 140 pound come to the boat plus 4 brown sharks. The hot bait of the day were skipjack fillets down 10 feet but a good deal away from the boat.

On Saturday, I came down to join the boys and shut the fishing right down. We went back to the same numbers and the water still look good but the fishing was not nearly as exciting. It took until 1pm to get a bite and it turned out to be a 100 pound dusky. Nothing else touched the baits the rest of the day.

Congratulations to all the winners.

Capt. Phil and mate Ryan DiBaggio ran home Saturday night after dropping off the charter in Cape May and made it to Manasquan at 11pm. A quick clean-up, long nap, and they were back out on the Striper grounds with the Dan Cranine charter at 5am. They had bunker right in front of Manasquan Inlet, loaded the bait boxes and ran up the beach towards deal. Live and fresh dead bunker produced 9 bass from 20 to 37 pounds.

On Monday, Capt. Dulanie and mate Peter Doran had the John Manerafina charter out and again found the bait right in front of the inlet. Quickly loading the bait boxes they were up on grounds by 7am and in on action all day. They finished up with 17 bass with the smallest around 18 pounds and most over 25 with fish up to 35 pounds.
