THE SHORT REPORT - ST. THOMAS
2011 June Moon Totals: 16 boats reporting
195 Blue Marlin Raised - 133 Blue Marlin Released

The June Moon is wrapping up, but not because the fish quit biting! Fishing a half day on what we call the airport run - Mojito was 1/2+2 and typical Sam of Revenge went 1/2+1 on the way to the plane. The steady picking Therapy crew were 1/2 and 1/1 on whites, Marlin Prince 1/1 and Hoosier Buddy went 0/2 on blues and 0/1 on whites. The best story of the day came from visiting Puerto Rican boat Victoria going 3/3 and 12 year-old Carlos Enrique Franco (his friends call him Calique) catching his his first blue marlin! Today's report includes the blue marlin catches of an 84 year old and a 12 year-old! It will be year 2083 when Carlos reaches Sam's age!!
