Capt. James Robinson, on the local charter boat Wound Up, a 37-foot Duffy, won the World Cup here in 2009 with an 865-pounder, and has probably won more tournament money than just about anyone here over the past several years. A native of Bermuda, Robinson grew up fishing these waters, so his success comes from years of practice catching big fish. "If you look at the tournament stats, I think you'll find that the local boats catch more of the big fish because that's all we fish for," Robinson says. "But I also think that the big-fish playing field is starting to level itself out as more of the visiting boats start to learn." The high heat of the Bermuda summer marks the best time to fish for blues in Bermuda, and the bite usually peaks during the month of July. Consequently, that's when most of the blue marlin tournaments occur. Card says that the season runs from June 15 to the middle of August, but they've caught them as early as April by accident. "We expect to see them on a daily basis from June 15 on to the end of August," he says, "so if you want to catch a blue, you should come during those three months."
