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!

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!

As June has passed and July is upon us we now look forward to tournament time!  Today kicked off the Ocean City Marlin Clubs Canyon Kick-Off and we had a lot of boats out on the hunt for tuna.  Fishing definitely slowed down but we had two monster catches hit the scales.  Early this afternoon we had a 94lb Cobia caught by an 9 year old angler!  Cobia’s aren’t a real targeted species off these waters and to catch a monster like this is a real treat!  With the fishing being slow, we caught whisper that the “Pumpin Hard” had a monster Wahoo coming in and no doubt it was weighing in at 102lbs!  The crew caught this stud along with a White Marlin down in the Washington.  “Boss Hogg” managed to find some Yellowfins down in the Washington bringing home 6 and the “Reel Chaos” did some deep dropping for 13 Tilefish and 7 Sea Bass.

Hopefully fishing picks up the next couple days but if you want to come see the Marlin Club weigh ins stop by between 5pm-7pm to catch some excitement!
