It was a beautiful, but somewhat quite day here at Sunset Marina. To start off the week we had 2 of our charter boats venture out in search of the elusive yellowfin tuna. Traveling to the Washington Canyon today was the “Reel Chaos” catching 5 very decent sized yellowfin and 1 dolphin. The “Marli” headed out to the Poorman’s Canyon bringing back 8 yellowfin. Also fishing in the Poorman’s was the “Boss Hogg” bringing back 9 yellowfin to the docks. With the weather and fishing heating up its only a matter of time until our fleet ventures out again, so stay tuned!!

Happy July, folks! We are happy to ring in the new month with news of awesome fishing all across the board. While the tuna’s have slacked off from the epic bite we saw previously, the marlin bite makes up for it as numbers increase each day. The ‘Rhonda’s Osprey’ fished the Norfolk, throwing 4 Dolphin on the docks. The rest of the fleet fished the Washington, including the ‘Buckshot’ (1 White release and 4 Dolphin), ‘Poor Sport’ (2 White Releases), ‘Marli’ (7 Yellowfin), ‘Reel Chaos’ (2 Dolphin, 1 White Release), ‘Grande Pez’ (3 Dolphin, 1 White Release), and ‘Boss Hogg’ (1 White release).
Today also concludes the Canyon Kick-Off, who had record breaking participants and a massive payout to the winners. The Ocean City Tuna tournement, hosted by the Ocean City Fishing Center, is fast approaching and will run from July 13-15. Last years payout topped a massive $785,000, and this year we are hoping to top those numbers! Check out the link HERE to learn more about the tournament and how to register.

Day two of the Canyon Kick-Off was intense, with a good chunk of the marina fishing leaving some docks looking like its the White Marlin Open! The ‘Rhonda’s Osprey’ was back before the rest of the fleet with 22 Dolphin and 2 Yellowfin. In the Rock Pile was the ‘Fish Tricks’, who returned with 4 Yellowfin. The Washington was a hot spot for the day, with the ‘Buckshot'(1 White release and 2 Dolphin), and the Brenda Lou (3 White Marlin releases) returning with a happy crew. The ‘Roncito’ fished the Wilmington, releasing three white marlin throughout their day. The ‘Fish On’ chose to fish the Norfolk, releasing a whopping 4 White Marlin and 1 Blue Marlin. The ‘Boss Hogg’ traveled all over today, returning with 3 Dolphin and 2 White releases. Lastly, the ‘Special Situation’ released 1 White Marlin and 1 Blue Marlin, and did not provide a location on where they fished.

It was a gorgeous day here at Sunset Marina, as well as offshore, allowing a few of our charter boats to sneak away into the deep.

The Boss Hogg returned back to the dock ahead of the fleet with an impressive 16 yellowfin and 10 dolphin. The Reel Chaos with 6 yellowfin and 8 dolphin and the Marli with 9 yellowfin and 6 dolphin. Venturing away from the fleet was the Espadon, heading out to the Jackspot . There they were able to catch 3 yellowfin, 2 dolphin, and 1 white marlin release. With the tremendous weather rolling in and the Ocean City Marlin Club’s Canyon Kick Off tournament this weekend you can expect the fish to be biting and the docks to be busy!!

With fishing being pretty slow the past few days everyone back at the docks was anxiously anticipating the arrival of our several boats fishing today and they sure didn’t disappoint! The Baltimore Canyon seemed to be the hot spot for our charter boats today with several of them bringing back a full load and limit of tuna! The Buckshot caught 8 yellowfin and was also one of our 2 boats out today to catch a white marlin! The other boat releasing 2 white marlin was the Boss Hogg, who caught 18 yellowfin. The C Boys were able to catch there limit of 15 yellowfin with the Fish On coming in close behind with 8 yellowfin.
