It was a little quiet on the docks today with the heat keeping most people inside soaking up some much needed air conditioning. We did have a few boats venture out hoping to find the fish. First to return we had the “Osprey” with a white marlin release and 2 dolphin in the Rockpile. Our next two boats found success in the Washington Canyon. The crew of the “Buckshot” returned with 5 dolphin and a white marlin release. The crew of the “Blue Eyes” came back with 2 dolphin, a white release and also a blue marlin release. Our last boat the “Marli” returned from the Baltimore Canyon with 2 dolphin. Most of the boats are watching the forecast for tomorrow and waiting to see what they will do. Stay tuned and keep cool!

It was yet another slow day at the marina today, due to weather, with only the ‘Marli’ being the brave soul to venture out today. Although they were the only boat out fishing, they sure made the most of it! The ‘Marli’ ran out to the Baltimore Canyon and returned with 4 yellowfin, 10 dolphin, 2 blue marlin releases, and 1 white marlin release resulting in a fantastic day for the captain and crew! Hopefully this fishing keeps up with the Ocean City Tuna Tournament being a couple days away.

It was quite the slow day out on the docks, as the weather deterred most of our boats from fishing. The ‘Marli’ was one of the brave souls to venture out today catching 2 dolphin in the Hambone. The ‘Pumpin Hard’ also ventured out today and caught 8 dolphin and 1 king mackerel out of the Massey’s Canyon.
