It was fitting that on Independence Day we welcomed anglers from the Washington, DC area for an offshore war with the Pacific Sailfish. Dave Priddy hails from a small town in Maryland just a few miles from the Potomac River and from the nation’s capitol.

Captain William pointed the Wanderer offshore towards the blue water and the fireworks started early for the Priddy posse. 

They had three Sailfish strikes and managed to catch two of them. Great work by Dave on the reel and First Mate Alex on the safe release of these Sailfish.

The boys also caught a 40lbs. Yellowfin Tuna and lost a MASSIVE Yellowfin estimated to weigh over 100lbs.

It’s about this time of year when we see BIG Yellowfin Tunas down here so it is nice to hear that they are back.
