Not much to report out of Sunset Marina today, with a questionable forecast keeping most boats at the docks. The highlight of the day was on the ‘Marli’, who ventured out to the Masseys Canyons to catch 6 Yellowfin Tuna- all fairly large in size. Today also wrapped up the Kids Classic- which brought tons of happy kids to the docks to weigh everything from Sand-sharks to flounder!
The Big Fish Classic kicks off next weekend out of Talbot St Pier, and is sure to be filled with excited anglers preparing for the upcoming White Marlin Open and Mid Atlantic tournaments.

Day 3 of the Ocean City Tuna Tournament had most-everyone fishing out of Sunset today, with 64 boats fishing out of our port (For the Tournament and recreational, of course).
We saw a handful of Tuna, both bluefin and yellowfin at the docks from the Hot Dog and a few places elsewhere. A huge attraction at the fish cleaning station today was the weighing of a 200 lb Swordfish, who was brought in by the Git-R-Done crew from the Chicken Bone. With the OCTT behind us, we can now look towards the Kids Classic tournament, which will be held right here at our alternate weigh station.
