Capt. Tom Henry

Just heard of the tragic death of Tom in a boating accident in Florida.He was an old,dear friend with whom I’ve spent many learning hours offshore on his WATERDOG.We fished the Big Rock together for years. Once at the WMO my boat was disabled with 2 fishing days to go.Tom heard of my problem,showed up at my slip at Sunset and worked till 2 AM to get me seaworthy and back in the hunt.One of our sports real gentleman he will be missed by all……..


Love and thanks to the Banta family for an awesome trip.

White Marlin Madness

It went off on Monday,70 miles off at the triple 000’s.8 boats out of Sunset,OCMD released over 200 Marlin.Previous Maryland daily release record of 27 fish was bested by 4 boats with the super pro’s on Billfisher accounting for 57.Late Aug/early Sept. in front of a major blow (read Earl) has historically been the Tell.It’s a hopeful sign for the viability of the resource. Banko Hannibal Panama trips are filling up fast with Jan and Feb full.Still some available spots in March……See Feb 2010 posts
