Current Pelican Fishing Report

Yesterday we had a wonderful day with the Short family! Dolphin and Tuna for the box and two incredible young anglers releasing their first White Marlin! This is what it’s all about!!

Marlin fishing can be some of the most exciting fishing one can participate in. Monday while targeting billfish, Larry Fischer and his crew landed a couple of Dolphin and a Tuna and released a Sailfish! Little did they know the BIG ONE was waiting for them at the very end of the day!! Just as they were getting prepared to call it a day Arch and Lee noticed a billfish sniffing the teasers. Before they could blink an estimated 400 lb Blue Marlin was in the spread and GAME ON!! The Fischer’s fought hard and did fantastic angling to end the day with a lifetime Blue Marlin release! Congratulations Pelican and Fischer crew! Memorable for sure!

You can’t help but hear the pure joy and excitement in the text I received. I couldn’t have said it better myself

“Summer, Just got off the boat…Jon Bolling III landed a nice Sailfish on his 1st offshore trip at the age of nine…we went 3 for 3 on them this afternoon and his grandad was happy with the Wahoo we caught in the morning…as he says, best eating fish in the ocean.”

All it takes is a family like the Bolling’s to show us the importance of taking kids fishing! Three generations together sharing such memorable moments on the Pelican and we get the pleasure of hosting this fine family.

A wonderful day!
