We’ve had an interesting May this year. We’ve had both, days we wished were better and excellent days. The tuna fishing has been inconsistent but the Yellowfins we’ve caught have been HUGE! From #91 lb’s at the smallest to #122 lb’s…CRAZY BIG TUNA!! Additionally, Wahoo have been big with the Bates crew and youth angler landing a #50 and #63 yesterday along with a few Dolphin and releasing a White Marlin! These last several days have been a mixture of meat fish with a few billfish releases. We’ve also enjoyed family fun catching Cobia. Congratulations to the Wheeler crew for landing  #91 & #98 Yellowfins this week! Great work!

Excellent fishing yesterday landing a box full of Tuna and topping it off with a White Marlin release! Weather looks good for Sunday and Monday if you want to go fishing!!

Bringing in fall fishing perfectly! Great catch of Yellowfin Tuna and a White Marlin release! Nice work!

Wyatt released three White Marlin, a Sailfish and a Blue Marlin along with a 38lb Dolphin, Tuna and Wahoo!! Little brother Grant released his first White Marlin and also landed Tuna, Wahoo and Dolphin! Wyatt and Grant Bailey are two extraordinary young anglers who had an unforgettable 2020 season on the Pelican! Way to go Bailey crew!

Coming into September hot! Great work Owens crew and a big congratulations to the ladies for releasing their first Blue Marlin!!

Excellent Marlin Fishing!
We’re having an exciting billfish season! Many “first billfish” releases which has been an incredible experience to be a part of! Notably, Weston Burgan at nine years of age released his first White Marlin! The Moran crew released ten billfish for a two day total; Scott Bush and his crew enjoyed an exciting fight with a nice Blue Marlin in addition to all their White Marlin releases and the Horiuchi ended the week nicely today with Courtney releasing her first White Marlin three times over along with Jonathan releasing his first three Whites and Brett completing his personal grand slam releasing a White and a bonus Sailfish. Our superstar niece Charley started all this fun releasing her first White Marlin competing as a junior angler in the Alice Kelly tournament earlier this month. Exciting times!! Most importantly, we’re grateful to be included in such remarkable and memorable moments!

What a great crew we’ve had the last two days! The bill fishing is picking up and we had the honor of being a part of first releases! Congratulations!

These are the kind of days that make July a great time to fish! Anything can happen! Nice work today!

Another great day on the Pelican. 2 whites, a sail and dolphin for dinner. Jon Bolling III released his first white marlin and Hayden Bolling released his first sailfish. Awesome time as always.
