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!

August is here- and that means the White Marlin Open is just days away. We are also happy to report that the marlin are beginning to show up offshore in areas like the Rockpile, Tea Cup, and the Baltimore!

The ‘C-Boys’ released 7 Yellowfin and 5 Dolphin in the Poor Mans. The Marli had 22 Dolphin, 2 White releases, and 1 blue marlin release. The Boss Hogg fished the Hot Dog, and found 40 Tilefish and 6 Golden Tiles. In the Wilmington, the Max Bet crew caught and released 2 White Marlin. The No Quarter crew had 6 Yellowfin and 2 whites. The ‘Bar South’ fished the Baltimore, catching 5 Yellowfin, 2 Dolphin, and released 1 White and a Blue.

It seems like this most recent storm was just the kick we needed to bring the Marlin bite off of Ocean City! Could this mean good news for tournament season?

The weather has finally cleared, giving our anglers a chance to once again trek offshore to find the bite. We are happy to report that the fishing is back on! The ‘Marli’ was the fist to fish after our recent foul weather and returned with 10 Yellowfin and a Mahi out of the Masseys!

If you’re fishing the tournament, don’t forget to visit Sunset Provisions for all of your marine supply needs. If you haven’t been recently, we have completely overhauled our store, adding more than you could possibly imagine of marine hoses, electrical items, pumps, gaskets, zinc plates, and more. If fishing tackle is more your style, visit Atlantic Tackle for everything from lures to mono-line and foul weather gear!

Not much to report today- with only a small handful of boats fishing. The ‘Reel Chaos’ had 1 Bluefin and 2 Yellowfin, and the ‘Boss Hogg’ had 5 Yellowfin. Both boats fished the Hot dog for today’s catch.

As you may have already heard, the Big Fish Classic scheduled for this weekend has been moved to September due to high seas offshore. This weekend may be a washout for fishing, but with the White Marlin Open fast approaching we have a lot to look forward to!
