|Sadie Beth sportfishing releases a blue marlin on April 18, 2015|
Offshore Report: With the first few blue marlin of the season being caught and released there can be no question that the offshore fishing season has fully arrived! Congrats to the Sadie Beth for their blue marlin release on Saturday April 18, and thanks to Capt. Emerson Read too. Scott reports great blackfin tuna catches coming in from the Georgetown Hole and the southwest banks. Boats are leaving the marina extra early to be at the fishing grounds right at dawn to take advantage of a blackfin bite that might not last too long into the morning. Remember to fish the baits way back or under a kite to tame some tuna. Solid reports of wahoo are coming from the ledge down south near the Edisto banks and the Deli area. The majority of dolphin reports are coming off of temperature breaks in 400 to 1200-feet of water, so they are still real deep.
