North Carolina Blue Marlin

Hatteras, NC – We have heard of few Blue Marlin being caught off the East Coast, but this is the first multiple Blue Marlin day we know of this year and what a day. The report came from Capt. Jonboy Kelmer fishing on the boat Islander. The boys caught three Blue Marlin. Two were 300+ and one was 400+. That is a helluva start to the season. He caught one on a ballyhoo, one on a pitch bait and the last on a lure. Way to go boys!

Jonboy is just warming up before he heads out to Madeira here in mid-May where he will take the wheel on the Grander.
