The white marlin bite was on today with boats getting multiple releases!  Most of our boats ventured back to the Baltimore where most of the action has been going on lately.  “Billfisher” released 4 white marlin and caught 9 dolphin!  “Poore Sport” caught a yellowfin,  “Tighten Up” released 2 white marlin and 1 blue marlin,  “Viva La Vida” released 2 white marlin,  “Legasea” had a great day releasing 3 white marlin!  The hot hand of the day was the “Fish On” who went to the Poormans who released 7 white marlin and 1 blue marlin!  Deep dropping in the Poormans was the “Boss Hogg” who returned with 56 tilefish, 37 sea bass, 5 dolphin.  In the Massey’s,  “Marli” had a good chunking trip returning with 2 yellowfin and 17 bluefish.

With many of our boats staying overnight fishing the Big Fish Classic we should see a lot of action tomorrow as they return from their trips.  It looked like the marlin bite was down in the Poormans with a couple boats who fished it had close to 15 bites a piece, so we should see some big fish and flags flying tomorrow afternoon!

After a blowout yesterday the fish were certainly biting on this beautiful Friday!  We finally saw a nice class of yellowfin ‘s again in the 40-50lb range with boats who ventured down in the Washington.  We saw a lot of chunks taken out of some fish from the sharks looking for a quick meal  so they are an inconvenience to deal with once some fish are hooked.  “Marli” was able to pick up 3 nice yellowfins along with “Reel Chaos” who caught 4 yellowfin and 3 dolphin.  “Boss Hogg”  also fought off the sharks but was able to come home with 3 yellowfin, 2 dolphin, 10 tilefish and 30 seabass.  The hot spot for marlin today was the Baltimore with boats having multiple releases while seeing a decent amount of fish.  “Osprey” released 1 blue marlin while seeing 2 others and caught 5 dolphin,  “Griffin” racked up 4 white marlin while catching 3 dolphin,  “Billfisher” had a great day with 3 white marlin releases,  “Lights Out” had the hot hand today releasing 5 white marlins!  “White Lightening”  also returned with having an awesome day releasing 2 white marlin, 1 blue marlin and 14 nice gaffer dolphin!  “No Quarter”  stayed a little more inshore and picked up 2 yellowfin while “Grande Pez”  went up to the Wilmington and caught 1 dolphin and released a white marlin.

Lots of boats are gearing up for tomorrow with the Ocean City Marlin Club’s Kids tournament happening this weekend.  It is a great event, putting smiles on a lot of young anglers faces!  Stop on by the marina this weekend to see what the crews bring back and see all the happy anglers!
