It was a busy day of fishing today out of Sunset Marina for Day 1 of the Big Fish Classic! The ‘Boss Hogg’ had 1 Yellowfin and a good amount of Tilefish and Seabass. The ‘Pumpin Hard’ released 2 Whites, just above the ‘Buckshot’ and ‘Legasea’ who both released 2 White Marlin. The ‘Sea Hag’ released a Blue Marlin. The ‘Billfisher’ released 3 Whites during their day. The Poor-Mans was the hot spot today, with all of our reports coming from that location. Five boats docked at Sunset chose to stay overnight today, so we may have some excitement early on at the docks. Some of these boats are fishing the Big Fish Classic, so it will certainly be exciting to see what it weighed in when scales open at 4pm tomorrow.

Today was a welcome surprise after a long and quiet few days here at the marina as a few of the boats on the fleet got to venture out for the first time in awhile.  We are happy to report they found the fish and just in time for the 4th annual Big Fish Classic which starts tomorrow!  The crew of the ‘No Quarter were the first back to the dock releasing 2 whites and a blue, and returned with 2 nice yellowfin and 2 dolphin which they caught in the Baltimore canyon.  Right behind them we had the ‘Miss Annie’ who also returned with 2 good looking yellowfin and 10 dolphin they caught in the Poorman’s.  Fishing alongside them in the  Poorman’s was the ‘Marli’ who released 2 whites and caught 9 dolphin.  Many more of the boats will be out tomorrow looking for the fish so stay tuned and good luck to all those fishing in the tournament!!

Happy September, anglers! The past few days have been slow at the docks, with nobody fishing due to some rough seas offshore. Thank changes tomorrow- with a good chunk of the fleet heading out to find the fish in time for the Big Fish Classic and the Challenge Cup. The only boat to fish from our charter fleet today was ‘Reel Chaos’, who fished the Poor Mans and released 2 White Marlin. The crew has plans to fish tomorrow as well. We expect to see plenty of reports after tomorrow, so be sure to check back in with us to find out the latest reports!

In regards to Hurricane Irma, we are closely monitoring this storm and urge or customers to do the same. At this time Irma is just too far out to know exactly if and where the storm will make landfall. However, with any severe weather event, preparation is key- and we recommend doubling up on lines, securing any loose items, and adjusting lines for a rising tide. We will be sure to update our customers via our website and Facebook should any important updates arise.

It’s been very quiet on the docks the past few days as the offshore forecast forced the boats to remain docked at the marina.  Today was the first day that provided a window of opportunity for them to sneak offshore once again.  We unfortunately only had two boats venture out today while many of our other friends packed up and set sail for other ports.  The ‘Marli’ was the first to return to the dock and caught two nice size yellowfin tuna and also had 6 dolphin.  The only other boat that went out today was the crew of the ‘Conspiracy’ who had two white marlin releases.  Both boats were fishing in the Washington Canyon.  The Marlin Club Labor Day tournament has been canceled for the weekend but hopefully some of our boats and crews get to go out and find the fish this holiday weekend!! Stay Tuned!

Thank you to all anglers who fished the tournament out of Sunset Marina and we hope to see you next year! Check out the final standings below:

After a gloomy day yesterday it was nice to see the sunshine return again today!  Many of our tournament boats have departed over the past 2 days but some will be staying another few weeks.  Hopefully they get to see some improved fishing action as we approach the Poor Girl’s Open this coming weekend.  We only had two boats give it a shot today.  The ‘C-boys’  fished in the Baltimore Canyon and brought back 2 yellowfin, 4 mahi, and 4 triggerfish.  The crew of the ‘Marli’ joined them in the Baltimore and had 2 white marlin releases.  If you haven’t done so already be sure to stop by Atlantic Tackle or Sunset Provisions for any of your fishing or boating needs!
