Finally feeling like summer around here at Sunset Marina!  The palm trees arrived this week, the pools are being prepped and there were nice warm temperatures throughout the day.  The “Marli” went out fishing today and had a great day! They were fishing in the Norfolk and brought back 8 dolphin and 7 yellowfin tuna.  Many other boats arrived back at the marina today for the season which means more fishing reports are sure to follow!!  If you haven’t done so already be sure to call the Marina office at 410-213-9600 to book your next fishing charter!!

October fishing seems to be heating up as the “Marli” ventured down to the Rockpile and caught 18 yellowfin tuna!  Capt. Mark is going to try and get a couple more days in this month if the fishing stays good and he will be back at it on Saturday.  Atlantic Tackle will be open until 6pm Monday-Thursday and 7pm on Fridays and Saturdays if you need to get any tackle supplies or bait.    If you are looking to pack some meat in the freezer there is fish to be caught!

With Hurricane Matthew behind us, a lot of people are making their preparations to head down south for the winter months.  The boats that hauled out are getting little things taken care of before they splash and there has been a lot of boats topping off, waiting for that next weather window to open up.  Transients have started pulling in by the numbers from the upper New England area as we make the transition to the offseason.

This doesn’t mean some charter boats aren’t going to make the best out of some good weather and try to pack the freezer.  The “Boss Hogg” ventured down to the Washington Canyon and put 6 yellowfin and a nice wahoo in the box!  We forgot to mention yesterday (10/11) that the “Marli” went to the Poorman’s Canyon and put his charter on a yellowfin and 25 dolphin!  Hopefully we get a few more fishable days here in the next couple weeks and can end the season on a high note!

We wish there was a fishing report to put up but with the wake of Hurricane Matthew putting a damper on the weekend the fleet will have to wait it out for a couple days!  Luckily the storm looks like it is going to veer off to the east once it hits the Carolinas so for now it looks like we dodged a bullet.

There was a great wahoo bite before the weather got in the way along with mahi mahi floating around out in the canyons.  Yellowfin tunas were being caught here and there but we hope to see a more concentrated bite next week to cap off the 2016 season!  Hopefully the weather allows the fleet to head out early next week to scope out!

It was another dreary day at the docks with overcast conditions throughout the day.  From the Captains report it wasn’t much prettier with the wind blowing a little harder out of the east then expected.  However, this didn’t stop some boats from heading out and putting some meat in the box!  “Marli” ventured up to the Wilmington and caught 4 yellowfin and 27 dolphin!  “No Quarter” heading south between the Washington and Norfolk and caught a white marlin and 4 yellowfin.  We have a couple boats still out who headed south to scope out the marlin bite so hopefully tomorrow they have a good report for us!

We only had one boat head out today which was the “Reel Chaos” who fished in the Wilmington Canyon and returned with 1 yellowfin and 5 dolphin.  It looks like the fleet is going to give it a shot tomorrow with better fishing conditions so stay tuned for tomorrow nights report!

The cooler temperatures of the fall season have certainly  not had an effect on the action at the docks.  Many of the fleet went to the Wilmington today seeking out the tuna bite. The “My Cin” returned with a nice yellowfin and also a White Marlin release.  The “Boss Hogg” had 3 yellowfin and a dolphin.  The “Marli” had 4 yellowfin, a dolphin and a White Marlin release.  Fishing between the Baltimore and the Wilmington was the “G-force” who came home with 2 White releases and a Blue Marlin release.  Finally the crew of the “Osprey” went to the Baltimore and had 11 dolphin, 3 yellowfin, and 5 white releases.  Most of our boats who were out for the billfish bite were still fishing late into the evening.  Hopefully their late arrival means they were able to find the bite!

It is starting to feel like fall with cooler temperatures throughout the day.  The fishing hasn’t cooled off with tunas and marlins still being caught in the Baltimore Canyon!  “Marli” caught a nice 59lb wahoo and 3 dolphin,  “Billfisher” caught 6 white marlin and 3 yellowfin!  “Fish Tricks” fished in the Washington and caught 6 dolphin and 3 yellowfin.  We heard of a nice tuna bite in the Wilmington Canyon so I’m sure we will see some meat hit the docks tomorrow evening!

It was a dark and gloomy day here at the docks with not much sunshine and spitting rain throughout the day.  However, that didn’t stop some boats from venturing out to the deep!  “Osprey” fished the Poorman’s and released 2 white marlin and caught 6 dolphin.  It looked like the best action was in the Baltimore Canyon where the following boats fished.  “Boss Hogg” had a mix of a blue marlin release, 60 dolphin and 7 yellowfin  tuna,  “Marli” caught 8 yellowfin tuna and released 4 white marlin,  “Zipper” caught a wahoo and 14 dolphin and the “Buckshot” released 7 white marlin!   It is nice to see some tunas starting to come in the mix so hopefully we will start to see the late season run!

With the weather keeping the fleet at bay the past couple days it seemed to let up just enough for them to get some baits wet.  From what we heard it wasn’t too pretty on the ride out and back with semi fishable conditions but they managed to get it done!  Running down to the Washington was the “Boss Hogg” who caught a nice 48lb wahoo, released 3 white marlin and put 33 dolphin in the box!  “Billfisher” added to their white marlin count releasing 4 for the day.  Stopping in the Poorman’s Canyon was the “Osprey” where Capt. Joe released 3 white marlin and caught 3 dolphin,  “My Cin” released 1 white marlin and caught 14 dolphin,  “Marli” released 1 white marlin and boated 30 dolphin and 1 yellowfin.  “Buckshot” fished between the Baltimore and Poormans’ and released 2 white marlin.  High hook of the day went to Capt. Luke on the “C-Boys” where he got on into some white marlin releasing 10 and boated 3 nice 60+lb yellowfin tuna!

The weather looks like a little dicey tomorrow but we fueled some boats today making it seem like they are trying to get their last days in before these fish pass on by.  If you haven’t got on the action yet make sure you call the marina office at 410-213-9600 to get hooked up with Ocean City’s Finest Charter Fleet!

As the OCMC vs CMMTC ended up being a one day shootout, today it was game on for the fleet with over 60 boats fishing today!  We saw great number of releases as it seems the bite ended up being down south towards the Washington.  It almost seems like a mini White Marlin Open on the docks and it always a great way to end the season.  We here at Sunset want to thank both the Ocean City Marlin Club and the Cape May Marlin & Tuna Club for hosting such a great release tournament!

A few reports we got off the docks was the “Osprey” released 6 white marlin and caught 1 yellowfin in the Poorman’s.  Down in the Washington the “Marli” released 4 white marlin and caught 20 dolphin,  “Fish Tricks” released 6 white marlin and 2 dolphin and the “My Cin” released 3 white marlin and caught 2 dolphin.  It looks like they are heading back out to get the last bit of the marlin bite so tomorrow should be another great day!
