May 26, 2015


The NJDEP Division of Fish and Wildlife has announced that Mark Milici of Doylestown, PA, made his way onto the state record fish list recently by landing a new state record blueline (gray) tilefish. Mark was fishing off a boat when he reeled in the 23 pound, 4 ounce fish, eclipsing the old record caught last year by 4 ounces.

Mark was bottom fishing off the boat, Last Hooray captained by himself on May 15. The boat was fishing in the Lindenkohl Canyon when the fish hit. He was using an Avet MXL reel spooled with 50-lb. test braided line and a Shimano Trebala rod. He used squid for bait. The new record blueline (gray) tilefish measured 35.5 inches in length and had a girth of 22.5 inches.
