Cue the White Marlin! The few boats that fished today came across huge amounts of White Marlin, much more than we have seen so far this summer. The ‘C-Boys’ fished the Baltimore, releasing 4 White Marlin. The ‘Pumpin Hard’ released 7 White Marlin as well as a Blue Marlin. The ‘Reel Chaos’ returned with a happy crew after releasing 8 White Marlin. The talk of the dock was the ‘Absolut Pleasure’, who released a whopping 12 White Marlin for their last day of the Poor Girls Open. Tomorrow brings registration for the Mid Atlantic- a marlin tournament which runs August 20-24. learn more about the tournament at www.themidatlantic.com

Day two of the Poor Girls Open brought plenty of White Marlin release flags to the docks, which surely will bring good fortune next week for those fishing the Mid-Atlantic. All of our fleet fished the ‘Baltimore’, with the ‘Marli’ (1 White release), ‘Reel Chaos’ (4 White releases), and ‘Pumpin Hard’ (1 White release) catching plenty to keep the anglers smiling. Several others, who did not provide a report, had plenty of release flags flying on the riggers. One more day is left in the tournament, so we will be looking forward to see what the final day brings to the scales. Plenty of boats are preparing to fish next week’s Mid-Atlantic tournament, who holds registration under The Bridge at Sunset Grille on Sunday afternoon.

The weather offshore kept a lot of the fleet at the docks today, but that did not mean it was a quiet day. The marina was a flurry of activity as many of the crews were rigging and getting ready for the Poor Girl’s Open which starts tomorrow!! Judging by the amount of boats that fueled today it looks like there will be a great turn out for the tournament. We only had two boats fish today and they both went to the Poor Mans Canyon. The ‘Espadon’ returned with 10 dolphin, 30 triggerfish, and also released two white marlin. The crew of the ‘Absolute Pleasure’ had 6 dolphin and also released 10 white marlin. Good luck to all those fishing in the tournament tomorrow!!

Another slow day at the docks with only a small handful of boats heading offshore. The ‘C-Boys’ fished the Wilmington, returning with 6 Dolphin. The ‘Rhonda’s Osprey’, ‘Fish On’, and ‘Blood Money’ fished as well, but we did not receive any report from these boats. The ‘Marli’ is fishing an overnight this evening, so we will hopefully see a nice catch from their adventure offshore.
Several boats are beginning to fish the Poor Girls open, kicking off this Thursday and running all weekend long. Register now at https://bahiamarina.com/tournament/poor-girls-open.cfm

Last week’s madness certainly kept the fleet busy, seeking the prestigious White Marlin worth a couple million dollars. While much of the fleet is still taking it easy, a few decided to fish today to see what the week will bring. The ‘Rhonda’s Osprey’ released two white marlin in the Washington. In the Baltimore was the ‘No Quarter’, who caught 8 Dolphin and released a Blue Marlin. The ‘Marli’ decided to visit the Poormans, releasing 2 Whites and bringing 1 dolphin back to the docks. Also in the Poormans was the Buckshot, releasing 3 Whites and bringing 8 Dolphin back to the docks.

The 45th annual White Marlin Open is a wrap and we would like to say Congrats to all the winners and thank all of those who chose to stay here with us over the past week!!! After a busy week here at the marina, with all the tournament frenzy, it was a quiet Sunday. Many of the tournament boats have departed in the past two days and we have returned to more of the normal routine around the marina. We only had a few boats venture out today but those who did were not disappointed. The ‘C-Boys’ crew fished in the Baltimore Canyon today and returned with 20 dolphin and they also released a white marlin. The crew of the ‘Reel Chaos’ fished in the Wilmington Canyon today and released 2 white marlin. The ‘Let it Ride’ returned later in the evening fishing just outside of the Wilmington Canyon and had 7 white releases. Next up is the 25th Annual Steve Harman’s Poor Girls Open. Have you booked your trip yet?
Anglers, Are You #WMO Ready?Posted 2 weeks ago
Rigging and icing baits, thousands of gallons of fuel, and spooling reels are just a few of the sights that you would see down any of the docks today as almost all of our boats prepare to fish the White Marlin Open. The action begins first thing tomorrow morning, with some boats leaving as early as 4:00am. We checked in with our friends over at the White Marlin Open, who were happy to report 382 boats registered for this year’s tournament and a record payout of $5.45 Million to distribute among the winners.
If you’re schedule is free tomorrow morning, we recommend making the trip to the Ocean City Inlet to watch the boats leave the bay- it’s truly a sight to see and a photo-perfect moment! And if you’re not a morning person, come on by Sunset Grille, grab a cold drink, and watch the boats roll in to prepare for the upcoming days.
As always, stay with us for the latest updates from what’s happening right here, and tune in to the White Marlin Open Live Feed to watch the weigh-in’s live from your phone or computer.

The docks were extremely busy today as more of our tournament boats continue to trickle in just in time for next week’s 45th annual White Marlin Open. Our crews spent the day fueling up, rigging baits, and doing routine maintenance like changing oil to make sure they are tournament ready. Due to the weather offshore today unfortunately we only had one boat go out to see what they could find. The crew of the ‘Marli’ fished in the Massey’s Canyon and returned with 2 dolphin and 3 bluefin tuna. This is the perfect time of year to swing by the marina, grab yourself a drink at the bar, and see all of the beautiful boats that are docked here at Sunset Marina!!

Today we rung in the last day of July watching the fleet prepare for the busy week again. Preparing lures, boat maintenance, and fueling up is all the crew’s are focused on to get ready for the chaos of next week. A few boats fished today, certainly to try and find the fish and get a head start on the action. The ‘Boss Hogg’, who was back by 1:00, returned with 4 Bluefin and 1 Dolphin from the Masseys. The ‘Osprey’ returned shortly after from their trip to the Hambone with 2 Bluefin. Also in the Hambone was Kyle Peet on the ‘No Quarter’, catching 3 Bluefin. The ‘Marli’ ventured to the Washington Canyons, bringing back 4 Bluefin and releasing a white marlin.
Stay tuned with us throughout the week for the latest, and for where, quite possibly, these fishermen can find whitey.
White Marlin Open, Here We Come.Posted 3 weeks ago
After a slow week of fishing, the fleet ventured out for the ‘Biggest Fish’ for the Big Fish Classic, pun intended. The tournament, hosted at Talbot St. Pier, boasted a new record payout of over $462,000 to be given out to a few lucky anglers. We are happy to announce that one of our own took most of the pie, with the ‘Reel Tight’ from A-dock winning over $244,000 for their 404.5 lb Blue Marlin. Other winners from Sunset include the Primary Search, who weighed in a swordfish, and the Absolute Pleasure with White Marlin releases, among others.
We certainly saw a chance of pace on the docks, with it feeling more like tournament season with every passing day. New boats are arriving daily, making Sunset Marina their home for the next couple weeks as they prepare to fish the White Marlin Open, Mid-Atlantic, and the other tournaments that fall in-between.
