The docks came alive again for the first time in a few days and it was a nice change of pace. We had a few boats have successful days fishing out of the Wilmington today. The ‘Pumpin Hard’ returned with 4 dolphin, 1 wahoo and 2 white marlin releases. Behind them was the crew of the ‘Blue Eyes’ returning with 3 white marlin releases. The Norfolk was where the crew of the ‘Grande Pez’ headed to and they returned with 2 white releases. The gang on the ‘Showtime’ also fished the Norfolk and had 6 white releases. Finally the crew of the ‘Hydrosphere’ headed to the Washington and returned with 3 white releases and 30 dolphin. Unfortunately it looks like tropical storm Laura and its remnants will be keeping the boats at the dock tomorrow but hopefully it clears out quickly and the pretty weather is right behind it!

As the month of August is quickly coming to an end we had another quiet day with only a few boats heading offshore. The crew of the ‘Marli’ headed out to the Poorman’s and returned with 6 nice yellowfin tuna! Next venturing to the Norfolk today was the crew of the ‘Wave Paver’ returning with 2 white releases and a blue marlin release. Tomorrow it looks like a few more boats will head out and then all eyes will be on the weather to see how Tropical Storm Laura effects the rest of the weekend fishing forecast.

The entire week was filled with laughs, cheers, and smiling faces all the way up until awards on Friday night. Thank you to all anglers who fished the tournament out of Sunset Marina and we hope to see you next year!

After the craziness of the extended WMO tournament last week, things are finally starting to feel like they are getting back to normal at the marina. We did have some boats head out today to see what they could find and they returned happy. The Baltimore Canyon was where our first two boats fished out of today. The ‘Cabana’ returned first with 7 white releases and a yellowfin. Next we had the ‘Reel Chaos’ return with 2 yellowfin and 4 white releases. Our last boat in the fleet to head out to the Poormans canyon was the ‘Fish On’. They came back to the dock with 4 dolphin, 2 white releases and a blue marlin release. It was a steady day of fueling and ice orders which means tomorrow is going to be a busy one. We will keep you posted on how they make out!
