Wow what a way to kick off September!!  We had many boats fishing well into the evening tonight with the White Marlin bite remaining hot.  Unfortunately we have been so busy we haven’t been able to get all the reports as the boats are still arriving as I am making this post.   I do have a few reports from the boats that arrived early in the evening.  The Baltimore Canyon was the spot for both the ‘DA Sea’ and the ‘Boss Hogg.’  The crew of the ‘DA Sea’ returned from an overnight trip and had 10 white marlin releases.  The ‘Boss Hogg’ had 60 dolphin, 30 tile fish, and 30 seabass.  The ‘Marli’ returned from the Washington Canyon and had 18 dolphin and 1 white marlin release.  Finally the crew of the Buckshot had an awesome day fishing south of the Poor Man’s Canyon and were 15 for 15 white marlin releases!  Stay tuned tomorrow for more on the action here at the docks!

The bite is on! The Poor Mans brought a successful day for all of our anglers with all boats having over 6 White releases to report in. The ‘Fish On’ released 6 whites. The ‘C-Boys’, ‘Buckshot’, and ‘Marli’ each released 7- and the ‘DA Sea’, ‘Tighten Up’, and ‘Pumpin Hard’ each released a whopping 8 White Marlin. The 60th Annual Labor Day tournament kicks off on this Thursday and runs all weekend, so it is without a doubt these anglers are keeping a close eye on the White Marlin for this weekend.

If this bite keeps up we will be looking at yet another successful challenge cup, where Ocean City Marlin Club competes against the Cape May Tuna & Marlin Club in New Jersey.

We had a great day here at the marina finishing off the final Sunday in August on a great note.  We had lots of boats venture out today and even though they had a bumpy ride home, no one returned disappointed!!! The first boat to return flying a rigger full of flags was the ‘Osprey’, releasing 7 white marlin that they caught in the Wilmington Canyon.  The hot spot of the day however was the Baltimore Canyon with  the majority of the fleet returning from here.  The crew of the ‘Marli’ released 3 whites and then we had the crew of the ‘Fish On’ who released 2 white marlin.  Next up was the ‘Bar South’ returning with 8 white releases and a dolphin and behind them was the ‘Espadon’ returning with 4 white releases.  The ‘No Quarter’ had 4 white releases while the ‘Tighten Up’ had 8 white releases.  Finally the crew of the ‘Grande Pez’ returned from the Poor Man’s Canyon with 4 white releases and a blue marlin release.  As you can see fishing isn’t slowing down so don’t hesitate to call and book your next fishing trip!!!

The fleet didn’t miss a beat following the Mid-Atlantic- continuing the search for the fish once again and taking advantage of the nice forecast. Returning with 1 Blue release and 1 white release flag flying, the ‘Rhondas Osprey’ had an excellent day on the water. The Reel Chaos crew also released a blue marlin- something that seems to be picking up in recent weeks. The ‘Marli’ released a white and brought it’s crew back with 30 Tilefish. A few boats including the ‘Marli’ and ‘No Quarter’ are planning to fish tomorrow- and with the Challenge Cup on the horizon we expect a busy start to September.

That’s a wrap for the Mid-Atlantic!

It was incredible week here for yet another Mid-Atlantic tournament, where anglers from all over gather to fish one of the most prestigious tournaments on the east coast. This tournament is co-hosted by Canyon Club and Sunset Marina, allowing participants to fish and weigh-in out of two separate ports. 157 fished the tournament in total, with 93 of those fishing out of the Ocean City port. Monday kicked off to a great start, and with an empty leader board, the crews from the 44 fishing flocked to the scales with potential winning fish. The board filled up quick with White Marlins, Tunas, and Dolphin. A whopping 146 boats fished on Tuesday (85 out of Ocean City)- bringing yet another day of action to the scales. Some beautiful Bigeye tuna were weighed in Tuesday, including the ‘Toddy Time’s 114 pounder. We also saw our first Wahoo of the week from the Zipper, weighing in at a whopping 71lbs.

The weather turned for the worst on Wednesday, keeping all 157 boats at the docks for the first time in the tournament’s history. On Thursday 124 boats fished, and those who only had one day left chose to sit Thursday out. The ‘Espadon’ hit the scales early on with a 34 pound Dolphin, which held through the week to take the prize in the Ocean City Home Port Calcutta for heaviest dolphin. Gusto weighed in shortly after, bringing a 69.0 lb White Marlin, which in the end took home some prize money for the crew. Friday was one for the books- with every boat fishing the tournament taking advantage of the final day (93 boats out of Ocean City, 64 out of Cape May). A couple Blue Marlins made it to the scale early on, but unfortunately did not make the qualifying weight for the tournament. Several Bigeyes and White Marlins made it to the scales on the final day- including the ‘FFMD’ with their 69lb White. That fish brought the crew some serious cash- helping them spread awareness for Muscular Dystrophy and donate some money in the process. All in all, it was another amazing tournament, and we always appreciate the Mid-Atlantic in bringing such an amazing tournament to Ocean City.
