It was a nice calm September day at the marina with a few boats out taking advantage of the break in the weather. The ‘Cabana’ was the first to return from the Poorman’s Canyon having a great day, returning with 2 swordfish and a yellowfin tuna. The ‘Sea Hag’ returned from the Baltimore Canyon with a white release and then the ‘Marli’ came in from the Baltimore with a Wahoo and 4 dolphin. The ‘Reel Joy’ fished in the Norfolk and returned with 2 white releases and a blue marlin release. The ‘Sandbob’ also went to the Norfolk and had a white release and 1 tuna. Finally we had the crew of the ‘Double J’ return from the Wilmington Canyon with 27 dolphin. We had a lot of people prepping on the docks as well to go out again tomorrow hoping to get one last day before the weather changes once again.

It was another strange weather day with a mix of rain and sunshine but it didn’t stop the boats from heading offshore once again. The first boat back to the dock was the crew on the ‘Osprey’ returning from the Massey’s with 3 dolphin and 1 tuna. Then we had the crew of the ‘Marli’ return from the Rockpile with 7 dolphin and 2 white releases. The rest of the fleet went to the Washington for the billfish bite and were not disappointed. The ‘Boss Hogg’ returned with 4 white releases and a tuna. The ‘Cabana’ returned with 2 white releases and the ‘DA Sea’ had 2 white releases. The ‘Roll Groove’ Returned with 4 white releases. Finally we had the ‘Blood Money’ return with 7 white releases in the Norfolk. We had a few more boats return with successful days but too late to make it to the report this evening. Looks like a few more are heading out again tomorrow for one last trip before the weather turns bad over the weekend.

Next was the crew on the ‘Fish On’ who had 2 white releases followed by the ‘Christine Marie’ with 5 white releases. The crew of the ‘Reel Chaos’ had 2 white releases and behind them we had the ‘Roll Groove’ with 3 white releases. Last to return from the Washington was the Buckshot with 6 white releases. Our only boat in the Poormans was the ‘Marli’ returning with 1 wahoo, one longfin and a white release. Looks like a nice number of boats are going to head out tomorrow to see what they can get before the weather comes in for the weekend.

The docks came alive again for the first time in a few days and it was a nice change of pace. We had a few boats have successful days fishing out of the Wilmington today. The ‘Pumpin Hard’ returned with 4 dolphin, 1 wahoo and 2 white marlin releases. Behind them was the crew of the ‘Blue Eyes’ returning with 3 white marlin releases. The Norfolk was where the crew of the ‘Grande Pez’ headed to and they returned with 2 white releases. The gang on the ‘Showtime’ also fished the Norfolk and had 6 white releases. Finally the crew of the ‘Hydrosphere’ headed to the Washington and returned with 3 white releases and 30 dolphin. Unfortunately it looks like tropical storm Laura and its remnants will be keeping the boats at the dock tomorrow but hopefully it clears out quickly and the pretty weather is right behind it!

It’s been very quiet on the docks the past few days as it seems many of the crews are taking some time to rest up after a busy month of tournament fishing. We had a few boats out today but only 2 of them gave us their reports. The Poorman’s canyon was where they found the fish today. The crew of the ‘Marli’ returned with 3 yellowfin. Next we had the ‘Southern Run’ return with 2 dolphin and 1 yellowfin. Hopefully we get to see some more action as the weekend approaches. We will keep you posted!

The Mid-Atlantic has wrapped up after a long week of amazing scale action. We saw everything from a 91 lb White on the Blood Money, to a Blue Marlin at 815 lbs on the Griffin! The entire week was filled with laughs, cheers, and smiling faces all the way up until awards on Friday night. Thank you to all anglers who fished the tournament out of Sunset Marina and we hope to see you next year!
