Rough seas didn’t hold back the crew today- and for a good reason! With the tuna bite being so good, plenty of anglers fought the rough seas to get in on the bite!
The ‘No Quarter’ fished the Poor Mans, returning with 2 Yellowfin and 1 Dolphin. They fished near the ‘Espadon’, who had 5 Yellowfin, also from the Poor Mans.
The ‘Marli’ had 5 Yellowfin and 1 Bluefin. ‘Reel Chaos’ had 2 Yellowfins, matching the catch from the ‘C-Boys’ crew. The ‘Boss Hogg’ had 1 Yellowfin and 1 Bluefin. All of these boats reported to be fishing in the Baltimore.
Straying from the group was the ‘Osprey’, who released 4 Yellowfin and 1 Bluefin, and returned with a 100 lb Bluefin!

The boats here at Sunset Marina got an early start to the weekend and they were rewarded generously with an awesome yellowfin bite today! There were wheelbarrows full of tuna lined up all the way into the parking lot, which is a sure sign that the season is upon us! The hot spot for the fleet today was in the Baltimore Canyon. The ‘C-Boys’ caught 14 yellowfin, the ‘Marli’ had 16 yellowfin, and the ‘White lightning’ caught 6 yellowfin and released another 13. The ‘Boss Hogg’ had 15 yellowfin tuna and also released a white marlin and the ‘No Quarter’ released 15 yellowfin and kept 1. The only boat fishing in the Poor Mans today was the ‘Osprey’ and they caught 7 yellowfin and released another 5 more.

The Reel Toy had an exciting day catching 9 yellowfin, 1 dolphin, and releasing a white marlin. It looks like many more will be venturing out tomorrow as the docks are still buzzing with people ordering ice and getting fuel so be sure to stayed tuned for tomorrow’s report!!

If anybody said they weren’t fishing the Poor Mans today- they were lying! The Poor Man’s was full of Tuna today- resulting in great catches being brought back to the docks!
Both the ‘Siren’s Song’ and Theresa Jean returned with 2 Bluefin, and both the ‘Marli’ and ‘Pumpin Hard’ came back with 3 Yellowfin. The ‘Rhonda’s Osprey’ had 7 nice Yellowfin to bring back from their day, who is docked right next to the ‘Fish Tricks’ who had 3 Bluefin and 4 Yellowfin. The ‘Espadon’ crew had 3 Bluefin, 1 Dolphin, and 1 Big Eye. The ‘Reel Chaos’ returned with 5 Yellowfin, 3 Big Eyes, and 1 Dolphin. The ‘Tighten Up’ came in later with 3 Bluefin and 2 Yellowfin, followed by the ‘No Slack’ with 1 Yellowfin.
We also have some exciting news to mention- the first White Marlin has been released out of Ocean City! The ‘Reel Buster’ was the lucky boat to release the White worth $11,000, and best of all, they store their boat right here in Sunset Marina’s Boatel!
1 Day remains in the Small Boat Tournament, however with only 1 boat fishing tomorrow don’t expect any big changes to the leader board. The MSSA Tournament at Atlantic Tackle also continues its final day tomorrow, so there will certainly be some action continuing on the docks to finish out the weekend.

We’ve got more Tuna than you can handle at the Sunset Marina docks! Today we saw more Tuna than we have seen all year- with massive numbers of Yellowfin, Bluefin, and Big Eye Tuna showing up.
The ‘Osprey’ came back with 3 Bluefins, 3 Big Eye’s. and 5 Yellowfin, the ‘My Cin’ had 5 Yellowfin and 1 Bigeye, The Second Chance had 6 Yellowfin, The ‘Zipper’ had 4 Yellowfin, and to complete the D-Dock crew the ‘C-Boys’ had 5 Yellowfin, 3 Bluefin, and 2 Mahi (They also reported releasing 10 Yellowfin and 10 Bluefin).

Yellowfin. All of these boats fished the Poor Mans.
On C-Dock, the ‘Marli’ returned with 6 Yellowfin and released 4, The ‘White Lightning’ returned with 2 Big Eye’s and 5 Yellowfin, and the ‘Reel Chaos’ crew returned with 2 Big Eye and 2 Yellowfin Tuna. All of our C-Dock crew fished the Poor Mans.
In other news, we learned today that the ‘Fish Whistle’ out of Indian River caught and released the first White Marlin. While that is very exciting news to report- they did not fish out of Ocean City’s inlet, which means $11,000 is still up for grabs! Local businesses (Sunset Marina, OCFC, and Atlantic Tackle included) teamed up to donate $6,000 on top of the $5,000 that the Town of OC awards to the first White Marlin out of the Ocean City inlet. So, a whopping $11,000 is still up for grabs!

Nasty weather has kept several boats at the docks the past couple days- however today changed all of that, with several boaters heading out to see what they can find! We saw a variety of dolphin and yellowfin today, certainly a pretty sight after last weeks foul weather.
