Looking for a slip from 8/5-8/8 in Nantucket boat basin for the Big Game Battle. Needs to be able to fit 52’x19’ boat. Thanks!

Sounds made up but, my wife’s cousin’s friend is close friends with a former Red Sox player.

Not made up. That is the only way to get into that event. I have tried many times to get in, no dice. Lots of blue marlin around at the moment. I had a bunch around me the other day. One of them followed the dredge right up to the back of the boat. It was longer than the stern. Big girl. They are eating 20 lb yf all day long.

The hot water was in gilbert and the deep water out to 4000 between gilbert and ocean, 80 degrees. Loaded with blue marlin. Very clean blue water. When your reeling in the rat yf dont be supprised if they come up and eat the yf right on your rig. Drop in free spool and your tight. They are hanging right with the small yf. Water was moving west. I will be back out this week trolling for them. That water has a strong connection to the stream and getting even better.

Forgot to mention. They are all over the dredge. Get your baits above the dredge maybe 60 feet off the stern.

Its north of ocean. Next one up. The water in between out in the deep is where they are. When you find the rat yf in that hot water you will be on them. Thete are some very big eyeballs eating them as well. Spanish mac pitch baits work well.

Someone got my buddy in this year. One of these years i will get in.

We, (the boat I fish on) got in last year. Covid nonsense took some of the fun out of the on land festivities otherwise a fun tournament. The boat is fishing it again this year, sadly I can’t make it.
