Ohio State Steelhead Record - Jason Brooks, a member of the Lake Erie Grady-White Club, caught an Ohio record-breaker June 25, 2010, off Avon Point, Lorain, OH, aboard his Seafarer 22. The steelhead trout was 21 pounds, 2 ounces and measured 38 inches long. He was fishing with his buddy Joe Boewe, who later celebrated his bachelor party and thus two catches of a lifetime!
John Deal of Lake Worth, FL, and crew including Chris Deal, Terry Marrs, Matt Tyler and Mark Bowers enjoyed fishing off West Palm Beach, FL, aboard a 2006 Sailfish 282. Dolphin for dinner?
Ledge Run - Stephen Dudra had a successful trip out of St. Augustine, FL, on his 1999 Chase 263. He loves his boat!

Porgy Princess - Kelly Downing caught some nice porgies on her father George Downing's Advance 247, "Akkina Kel", out of Montauk, NY. Here she is back at the dock.

Big Ugly - Bruce Cao fishes out of Galveston, TX, on a 2008 Grady-White Advance 257. Big black drum!
Brian Dillistin, left, captain of Canyon 336, "Hard Bargain Too", took marine artist John Barber fishing in mid-January out of Virginia Beach, VA, and off the coast of North Carolina. Two of the many rockfish caught that day qualified for release citations. "All five fishermen aboard had lots of exercise cranking in big, fat healthy fish!" wrote Barber. "We even spotted a whale breaking the calm Atlantic water..."
The best day of billfishing ever experienced! sums up the adventure of the "Bent-Bill" crew out of Manteo, NC, on a fine March Monday. Tom Harrison and daughters Savannah, Caroline and Rebecca went out with Ben Blystone aboard Bernie Blystoneis Express 330. Caroline caught a white marlin over 100 pounds. Rebecca caught her first sailfish, and then another. Tom hooked yet another sail while clearing lines for Rebecca (a double!) and Ben brought it aboard briefly for a photo. All bills were released successfully. On top of all this, Savannah caught a tasty dolphin/mahi mahi and there was a yellowfin tuna taken as well.
