We had a well rounded weekend for October and even though it ended with a rainy cloudy Sunday we did see some really nice fish come back to the dock. We saw a good number of Swordfish that included a 400 + pounder caught by the crew of the ‘Sea Hag.’ Congrats to Charlie and crew for that exciting catch! The ‘Reel Chaos’ also went out today and came back with a really nice big eye tuna while also releasing a swordfish. This is all a good sign in anticipation for next weekend’s 1st Annual Bishop Broadbill Bash. This event is being held in honor of Rena Bishop, a beloved member of the Ocean City and Sunset Grille team, and her fight against breast cancer. Proceeds from this tournament are being donated to the Jack Burbage Regional Cancer Care Center in Berlin. It is a great opportunity for fisherman of all kind to get out there and fish for a good cause, while also having a chance at some nice cash prize money!

The docks came back to life after many days of quiet with some of our boats taking advantage of the nice weather. The first boat back to the dock was the ‘Osprey’ returning from the Baltimore with their limit of dolphin. The Washington seemed to be the popular fishing spot today with many of our boats returning from there. The ‘Cabana’ returned with 50 dolphin and a swordfish. The ‘White Lightining’ returned with 2 white releases and 50 dolphin. The ‘Mobster’ had a white release while the ‘Fish On’ returned with 2 swordfish and some dolphin. The ‘Two Suns’ returned with a nice wahoo and a bunch of dolphin. Finally we had the ‘Brenda Lou’ return from the Rockpile with 2 wahoo and 2 dolphin. We had many other boats fish today and have successful days unfortunately with limited staff it was hard to grab everyone’s fishing reports, but a great day was had by all! Tomorrow looks like another busy day of fishing so we will keep you posted on how they make out!
