Ocean City is known as the “White Marlin Capital of the World” and its name stayed true when the “Osprey” came back with a mess of flags flying!  Capt. Joe kept his crew busy releasing 17 white marlin, 1 blue marlin and put 29 dolphin in the box while fishing in the Poorman’s Canyon.  “Buckshot” also had a great day out in the Poorman’s as well releasing 5 white marlin and catching 15 dolphin!  Trying to get on the meat down in the Washington was the “Marli” who caught 6 yellowfin, 8 dolphin and released 1 white marlin.  “C-Boys” with Capt. Luke was down there as well and he put 36 dolphin in the box while also releasing 1 white marlin.

It looks like more people are itching to head out this weekend after being cooped up since the storm.  Hopefully the fishing stays hot and we can have the marlin bite go through the month of September!  With many boats catching wind of todays fishing it should be a busy weekend for us down on the docks, so come on by and take advantage of the beautiful weather and awesome sites!

With Tropical Storm Hermine behind us the fleet has been itching to get back out to the deep to see where the fish are.  The only boat to fish out of the marina today was the “Marli” who ventured down to the Washington Canyon and was rewarded with 3 white marlin releases, 1 blue marlin release and 31 dolphin!  Capt. Mark said the seas really laid out in the afternoon to make for a beautiful day!

As the tournament season is over we will get back to normal charter fishing operations along with many boats taking advantage of the great white marlin bite that occurs over the course of September.  The fishing season is far from over here out of Ocean City so if you are looking to get a trip in, now is the time to book.  There is plenty of marlins, mahi, and tunas out there to make your trip memorable so make sure you contact the marina office or visit our charter directory to see our first class charter fleet!

As we prepare for Tropical Storm Hermine to affect us this weekend we had a couple boats brave the seas and get one more day of fishing in.  The “Reel Chaos” fished the Baltimore and released 6 white marlin while the “Artemis” was in the same spot and released 5 white marlin!  Hopefully the weather doesn’t effect fishing as it has been great this past week.

As for this storm, we should see some sustained winds for Saturday and Sunday with rain and a little storm surge.  Boaters we urge you take precaution and double up any lines and tie down any loose equipment on your vessels.  Any lines or products you may need can be purchased at Sunset Provisons throughout this coming weekend.  Stay safe and dry everyone!

It was day one for the Poor Girls Open and we had a bunch of happy ladies return back to the docks!  This is such a great event and Bahia Marina does such a wonderful job raising money for Breast Cancer Awareness!  Out in the canyons it was a dolphin kind of day with the “Marli” putting 11 in the box along with 9 tilefish!  “Osprey” was out there as well and they caught 12 nice dolphin along with releasing 2 white marlin!  “Reel Chaos” went to the Poor Mans and caught 7 dolphin and 25 tilefish.  The next two days will consist of more crews fishing the Poor Girls Open so we are sure to see some pink around the docks!

As everyone starts to get back to normal after the long tournament week of the 2016 White Marlin Open we only get a week break until the Mid-Atlantic Tournament starts up.  A little recap of last week is that marlin fishing was as good as it has been in years and our marina had 23/30 of the top release boats in the tournament!  We just want to thank everyone who fished out of Sunset Marina during the week and cant wait until next year!

As normal charter fishing begins to resume it looks like marlins and mahi mahi are in store for right now and there is some decent fishing!  “Marli” fished the Poormans and caught 11 dolphin, 1 yellowfin, and released 3 white marlin!  “Espadon” was in the mix as well catching 4 dolphin 1 yellowfin and released a blue marlin.  “Buckshot” fished the Rockpile and ended up with 25 tilefish, 7 sea bass, 1 dolphin and released 1 white marlin!  If you are looking to get in on some marlin fishing along with a mix of meat fish now is the time to go so call our marina office at 410-213-9600 or visit our charter directory on our website to book your  trip of a lifetime!

As most of our White Marlin Open boats have arrived it was a busy day around the docks!  It is amazing how in one day things can get chaotic but in a good way!  We didn’t receive many fishing reports but the marlin bite seems to be consistent with boats coming in with flags flying.  “My Cin” went overnight in the Wilmington and returned back with 9 white marlin releases, 1 dolphin and released a 300lb hammerhead shark!  Tomorrow will consist of last minute preparations for Monday and the last of our tournament boats should be arriving!

Another busy day on the docks as Day 1 of the Ocean City Marlin Clubs Heel & Reels Tournament kicked off with weigh ins over at Atlantic Tackle!  We had both boats fishing that tournament along with fun fishing to get their team ready for Monday.  The good news is that marlin fishing right now is fantastic and the bite is even moving closer off the coast of Ocean City!  The good piece of water was up over 100 miles away a couple days ago and is now up on the tip of the Wilmington Canyon which is roughly 75-80 miles away!  Fishing the Heels & Reels Tournament was the “Osprey” who released 6 white marlin in the Spencer and the “Brenda Lou” caught 9 white marlin in the Wilmington!  Most of the boats marlin fishing today had between 5-8 releases and we saw up to 15 releases!  I cannot remember when the marlin bite was this good leading into the White Marlin Open so it should make for a record tournament if fishing stays this good!  If you plan on being in the area this coming week make Harbor Island and Sunset Marina a must stop for all the tournament action!
