2015 Bohicket Governor's Cup - Day One Fishing

Danny O'Quinn with a 36.0-pound Mahi
A total of 20 boats registered to participate in the Bohicket Marina Invitational Billfish Tournament, and 15 of those boats elected to fish on Thursday June 4, or Day One. A calm sea greeted the anglers, and some reported that it was 'greasy slick' out there. But a hot morning billfish bite saw five blue marlin released by the 10 a.m. report. By the end of the day at 3 p.m. there were 13 billfish released including 10 blue marlin and 3 sailfish - plus a good many more blue marlin spotted in the baits without a hook up.

What's better than one mahi? TWO!!
The meat fish bite was not all that strong with the ocean in such a calm state. Offshore anglers know that you don't want it too rough out there, but you don't want it too calm either. There were no wahoo or tuna brought to the weigh scales on Thursday, but there were about a dozen mahi. A stud 36.0-pound dolphin brought in by angler Danny O'Quinn fishing on Summer Girl is the Day One and tournament leader for Outstanding Dolphin. In second is Fred Bergen Jr. with a 30.6-pound mahi caught from Legal Holiday. In third is angler Dan Ferguson from Bad Becky with a 29.2-pounder.

The leading lady angler is Holly McAlhany fishing from Syked Out - she released a blue marlin and a sailfish during her banner day, which is good for 800-points. In second place is Jen Haugen from Mutts and Jeff for her release of a blue marlin, good for 600-points. Third place is Summer Simpson with a 23.4-pound mahi caught from Sportsmann.

The Outstanding Billfish Boat category is decided by the time of release, so the top three boats each released two blue marlin on Day One, but My Three Sons is in first based on time.
