Mr. Dan Campbell hooks our largest Mahi Mahi of the day (7/25/07) - what beautiful colors! the camera never really seems to do justice to the brilliant colors of these fish.

On July 5, 2007 Mr. Eddie Earles and friend pose with another new species aboard the "Jil Carrie" - a HOUDFISH! What a strange critter this was leaping like a Marlin, fighting like a Bluefish, and slithering like an Eel!
July 2, 2007 - Here's a great story - Miss Allison Helmut - 8 years old of Eldersburg Maryland scored our largest Spadefish ever aboard the "Jil Carrie" - 9 pounds 13 ounces. Miss Helmut was just one ounce off of tying the 8 year old IGFA World Record of 9-14! She earned a VA weight citation!
