There was one word to describe today and that would be HOT!!  The report from the guys offshore was that it wasn’t much better out on the water but that didn’t stop them from having a great day!  We saw a mix of yellowfins, bluefins, mahi, and marlins!  The Massey’s seemed to be jammed packed with boats chunking but it didn’t stop the “Marli” from returning with 3 nice size yellowfins.  “Boss Hogg” was also fishing with the fleet and came back with 5 yellowfins.  “Reel Chaos” branched out to the Baltimore and picked up 20 mahi mahi for dinner!  Out marlin fishing in the Norfolk was the “Billfisher” releasing 1 white marlin and 1 blue marlin.  The Sea Slammer was out there as well releasing 2 white marlin, 2 sailfish and bringing home 6 dolphin!

Tomorrow starts the Ocean City Marlin Clubs Kids Classic with weigh ins here at the marina between 3pm-6pm both Saturday and Sunday.  This is a great event to get kids in the spirit of fishing and to benefit the Make A Wish Foundation!  Make sure you stop on by to see all the action and the big smiles with some happy anglers!

The fish were munching so good on the chunk this morning that we had 2 boats back before 11am!  “Osprey” went to the Hotdog and got into a mix of 1 Bluefin, 15 yellowfin and a blue marlin release!  “My Cin” went to the Massey’s and brought home 9 yellowfin, 1 Bluefin and 2 dolphin.  Down in the Washington the “Marli” brought home 7 yellowfin and 3 dolphin with the “Boss Hogg” hitting the docks with 3 yellowfin and 1 dolphin.  “C-Boys” with Capt. Luke Blume had a terrific day hooking up and bringing home 18 nice size yellowfins!

It looks like the chunk bite has took a turn in the right direction and flats of butterfish are flying out the door so make sure you stop into Sunset Provisions or Atlantic Tackle for all your bait and tackle needs!

It was a weird weather day here at the docks with us having the regular charters go out to the canyons.  Our boats have converted to both trolling and chunking and it seems you have to be at the right spot at the right time to really get on the fish. However, tuna fishing is still decent enough that you can still bring home some meat  home for the freezer!  Just ask the crew of the “White Lightning” who went to the Masseys and caught 1 Bluefin and then ran out to the Poormans and picked up 6 yellowfin!  Fishing in the Washington was the “Marli”  who brought home 3 yellowfin to the dock while the “Buckshot” caught 2 yellowfin and threw back over 20 undersized fish.  The dolphin fishing from points down south seems to be picking up along with marlin fishing with us seeing two private boats one with 2 and the other with 3  releases!

Summer is flying by so don’t miss a chance to catch a fish of a lifetime!  Call the marina office at 410-213-9600 or visit our charter directory on our website for more information on our fleet!

With the last day of the Ocean City Tuna Tournament under wraps, everyone was out looking for the big one!  There were some changes on the leaderboard but the full results can be seen later on this evening by visiting their website at www.octunatournament.com

With the tournament over the tuna fishermen will probably switch over to chunking and the few boats that have done it so far has had great success.  Marlin fishing will steadily improve as the boats have seen a good amount over the weekend so fishing will still be very successful!  Now is the time to get tuna, marlin, and mahi so make sure you call the marina office at 410-213-9600 or visit our charter page to see our fleet!

From the Sunset Marina family, happy 4th of July!

Today was a much slower day at the docks than we have seen in recent weeks, but that isn’t without boats going out and bringing some meat back to the docks!

‘No Slack’ fished the Fingers, returning with 2 Dolphin, and the Buckshot also fished the ‘Lumpy Bottom’ and brought back 4 Dolphin and 1 Yellowfin. ‘My Cin’ returned back around 7:30, brining back 2 Golden Tilefish and 2 Dolphin from the Washington.

All of the boats are gearing up for the upcoming Tuna Tournament, and we wish all of our anglers the best of luck!

With day two of the OCMC Canyon Kick-Off today we had some boats on the hunt to place some quality fish!  From what I saw it looked like there were a lot of fish being weighed in down at the scales so make sure you check out the Marlin Clubs website to see the tournament updates.  For our boats fishing today the same story is being told, there are Bluefin’s inshore and you are still able to pick up some quality Yellowfin while releasing a ton and some White Marlin out in the Canyons.  Fishing in the Hambone was the “Marli” picking up a quality Bluefin and the “No Quarter” picked up a Bluefin and ran out and released two White Marlins!  “Osprey” stayed inshore at the Massey’s and caught 3 dolphin and 1 Yellowfin.  Venturing out to the Washington was the “Absolute Pleasure” who managed to catch 2 Yellowfin and 1 Dolphin,  “White Lighting” had a great day catching 2 Yellowfin, 1 Dolphin and 2 White Marlin!  The “Griffin” released a White Marlin in the Baltimore as well.

As you can see the White Marlin’s are starting to show and we are also seeing a good amount of Blue Marlin releases as well.  As keeper Yellowfins are thin right now the boats are releasing a lot of undersized fish to keep the rods bent and picking up quality dolphin.  Day 3 of the Canyon Kick-Off is tomorrow to wrap things up this holiday weekend so there is still tons of action going on around the marina!  Make sure you come grab a drink at Teasers and see all the action live!
