Capt. Scot aboard XTC Sportfishing out of Belmar had a crew from Berkley Fishing and PENN Reels offshore on Friday, with local rep Chris Gatley saying the skipper went above and beyond expectations based on the offshore forecast. He watched the weather and as an expert made a tough call due to storms, Gatley told us, noting that he was at the boat with the charter early morning Friday and called it due to thunderstorms offshore. Things opened up weatherwise and saw a window, Gatley said, noting how Capt. Scot left it up to the crew a little later in the morning to decide. Things opened up and had them back at the boat and put them on fish, Gatley noted, saying the team of Caroline Dillon, Aaaron Wavra, Jake Dawson and Chris Pitsilos got on the yellowfin on the troll. Thing about fishing offshore, it pays to be a little flexible.
