With the last day of the OCMC Canyon Kick-Off wrapped up there was certainly some action at the scales!  The highlight definitely had to be the 125lb yellowfin caught aboard the “Brenda Lou”!  Full tournament results can be seen on the Marlin Club website later on this evening.

With the Bluefin bite slacking off inshore, our boats red out to the canyons in search for White Marlin and Yellowfin tuna!  In the Poormans the “Blood Money” had a great day with a mix of 5 dolphin, 2 yellowfin, 1 wahoo and 2 white marlin releases!  “Buckshot” caught 5 dolphin and the “C-Boys” released a white marlin and caught 1 yellowfin fishing  in between the Poormans and Washington.  Fishing in the Washington the “Tighten Up”brought back 8 dolphin to the docks.  “Marli” went inshore and picked up a Bluefin and then ran out and caught 4 dolphin in the Washington.  However you are spending your holiday tomorrow we here at Sunset hope you stay safe and enjoy!

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!

With the final day of the Small Boat Tournament along with the MSSA Tunament, we had a lot of boats take advantage of the break in the weather and head out to the Poormans canyon.  The fishing seemed to slack off however with the fish seeming to be driven down due to the amount of boats out there.  With that said, it was still decent fishing starting with “C-Boys” returning with 2 yellowfin,  “Osprey” had 4 yellowfin and 5 dolphin,  “Fish Tricks” was able to mange to get 7 yellowfin and 1 dolphin,  “My Cin” came back with 4 yellowfin (released 15), 4 gaffer dolphin,  “Marli” returned with 2 yellowfin,  “Billfisher” hit the docks with 4 yellowfin,  “Boss Hogg” returned with 6 dolphin and 1 yellowfin,  “Three J’s” returned home with a mix of 1 wahoo caught by 8 year old Jace, 1 white marlin release and 1 dolphin!

The name of the game today was bigeye!  They were chomping out in the Baltimore for the crew of the “Skattebol” who returned with three weighing 127, 128, and 138lb!  “Osprey” fished out in the Baltimore as well returning to the docks with 8 yellowfin.  The hot spot for sure was the Wilmington Canyon where the big news was Capt. Brain Porter and the crew of the “Boss Hogg” kept the rods bent bringing home 5 bigeyes, 8 yellowfin and 4 dolphin!  “Marli” also ventured up that way and was rewarded with 5 yellowfin and broke a bigeye off at the boat.  “Fish Tricks” traveled down to the Washington and was rewarded with 5 yellowfin.  There are fish all around the canyons now with the bigeyes now biting during the day so now is the time to book.  Call the marina office at 410-213-9600 to book or visit our charter directory on the website to have your trip of a lifetime!
