Another busy day on the docks as Day 1 of the Ocean City Marlin Clubs Heel & Reels Tournament kicked off with weigh ins over at Atlantic Tackle! We had both boats fishing that tournament along with fun fishing to get their team ready for Monday. The good news is that marlin fishing right now is fantastic and the bite is even moving closer off the coast of Ocean City! The good piece of water was up over 100 miles away a couple days ago and is now up on the tip of the Wilmington Canyon which is roughly 75-80 miles away! Fishing the Heels & Reels Tournament was the “Osprey” who released 6 white marlin in the Spencer and the “Brenda Lou” caught 9 white marlin in the Wilmington! Most of the boats marlin fishing today had between 5-8 releases and we saw up to 15 releases! I cannot remember when the marlin bite was this good leading into the White Marlin Open so it should make for a record tournament if fishing stays this good! If you plan on being in the area this coming week make Harbor Island and Sunset Marina a must stop for all the tournament action!
