It has been awhile since we were able to post a fishing report with the craziness of the White Marlin Open and the weather not cooperating over the weekend.  Hopefully this wind will lay out and our guys can get back to fishing!  “Marli”  was able to go out for a 16hr trip leaving the dock at 7:30 am yesterday morning and returned last night around 12am.  The trip paid off returning with 24 dolphin, 13 yellowfin, 1 bigeye and 1 white marlin release in the Washington!  The private boat “Waste Knot” returned this morning also having huge success releasing 4 white marlin, a 194lb bigeye and a handful of dolphin and yellowfin!

The weather for this weekend looks great for the 22nd Annual Poor Girls Open which is great event benefiting breast cancer awareness, with fishing days the 13-15.  Starting on Monday the 17th the “Mid-Atlantic” tournament begins which is a great tournament with Sunset Marina being a co-host weigh in!  Make sure you stop by the docks to see the catches and be apart of all the excitement!
