It’s been a quiet couple of days at the docks, with Tropical Storm Chris keeping the offshore forecast unfishable over last weekend. That all changed today, with the crew’s eager to get offshore and find the fish before the Ocean City Tuna Tournament kicks off this Friday. The fleet returned with full fish-boxes, catching everything from Tuna to Dolphin to the prodigal White Marlin. In the Baltimore Canyons was the ‘Rhonda’s Osprey’ with 13 Yellowfin, 3 Dolphin, and white release); and ‘No Quarter’ with 5 Yellowfin, 6 Dolphin, and 1 white release. The ‘Pumpin Hard’ (15 Yellowfin, 2 Dolphin, and 2 White Releases), ‘C-Boys’ (13 Yellowfin, 41 Dolphin), and ‘Boss Hogg’ (7 Yellowfin and 13 Dolphin) fished the Washington Canyons. The ‘Marli’ trekked over to the Poor Mans where they caught 5 Yellowfin, 5 Dolphin, and 2 White releases.

This is great fishing news with just days away from the Ocean City Tuna Tournament. 17 boats have already pre-registered for the tournament, which leads the tournament crew to believe a record-breaking payout is on the horizon. To get in on the action, head on over to www.octunatournament.com

With rocky weather offshore, most of the fleet decided to stay at the docks for the start of their weekend. That didn’t stop the entire fleet, however, with five boats coming back with fairly decent catches. The ‘Reel Toy’ (2 White releases), ‘Reel Chaos’ (6 Dolphin), and ‘Max Bet’ (1 White release and 1 Blue release) fished the Washington Canyon. The ‘Marli’ ventured to the Poor Mans, returning with 4 Dolphin. In the Jackspot was the ‘Espadon’, who released a whopping 3 White marlin and 10 Dolphin. Rough weather is expected throughout the weekend, so don’t expect any major catches to arise over the next couple days.

The Ocean City Tuna Tournament is fast approaching, coming up next weekend with a huge payout to a few lucky anglers. If you havent registered yet, head on over to www.octunatournament.com for more details.

HOT! HOT! HOT! Although this is an accurate way to describe the weather right now, it could also be said for the fishing out of Sunset Marina! We had a “boat” load of people fishing today, all bringing back an overabundance of fish! The Washington Canyon seemed to be the hot spot of the day for many of our boats including the Cabana (2 white releases, 1 blue release, 5 yellowfin, and 1 dolphin), No Quarter (1 white release, 1 Bigeye tuna, 2 yellowfins, and 1 dolphin), C-Boys (3 white releases and 10 dolphin), Brenda Lou (2 white releases and 12 dolphin), Poore Sport (3 white releases and 5 dolphin) and finally the Tighten up with an incredible day (white releases and 6 dolphin)!! Fishing the Baltimore Canyon today and back first to the docks was the Osprey with an extremely impressive catch of 4 Bigeye tuna (111 lbs, 109 lbs, 100 lbs, and 98 lbs) with almost all weighing over 100 lbs!! Venturing alone to the Poor Man’s Canyon was the Marli, catching 1 yellowfin, 2 dolphin, and also releasing a bluefin weighing over 400 lbs and measured 89 inches long, which is extremely impressive!! Lastly, the Buckshot ventured to the Norfolk Canyon today and had 1 white marlin release.

The white marlin bite is slowly, but surely picking up so be sure to come down and check out all the action happening down here on the docks!!

It was a beautiful, but somewhat quite day here at Sunset Marina. To start off the week we had 2 of our charter boats venture out in search of the elusive yellowfin tuna. Traveling to the Washington Canyon today was the “Reel Chaos” catching 5 very decent sized yellowfin and 1 dolphin. The “Marli” headed out to the Poorman’s Canyon bringing back 8 yellowfin. Also fishing in the Poorman’s was the “Boss Hogg” bringing back 9 yellowfin to the docks. With the weather and fishing heating up its only a matter of time until our fleet ventures out again, so stay tuned!!

Happy July, folks! We are happy to ring in the new month with news of awesome fishing all across the board. While the tuna’s have slacked off from the epic bite we saw previously, the marlin bite makes up for it as numbers increase each day. The ‘Rhonda’s Osprey’ fished the Norfolk, throwing 4 Dolphin on the docks. The rest of the fleet fished the Washington, including the ‘Buckshot’ (1 White release and 4 Dolphin), ‘Poor Sport’ (2 White Releases), ‘Marli’ (7 Yellowfin), ‘Reel Chaos’ (2 Dolphin, 1 White Release), ‘Grande Pez’ (3 Dolphin, 1 White Release), and ‘Boss Hogg’ (1 White release).

Today also concludes the Canyon Kick-Off, who had record breaking participants and a massive payout to the winners. The Ocean City Tuna tournement, hosted by the Ocean City Fishing Center, is fast approaching and will run from July 13-15. Last years payout topped a massive $785,000, and this year we are hoping to top those numbers! Check out the link HERE to learn more about the tournament and how to register.

It was a gorgeous day here at Sunset Marina, as well as offshore,  allowing a few of our charter boats to sneak away into the deep.

The Boss Hogg returned back to the dock ahead of the fleet with an impressive 16 yellowfin and 10 dolphin. The Reel Chaos with 6 yellowfin and 8 dolphin and the Marli with 9 yellowfin and 6 dolphin. Venturing away from the fleet was the Espadon, heading out to the Jackspot . There they were able to catch 3 yellowfin, 2 dolphin, and 1 white marlin release. With the tremendous weather rolling in and the Ocean City Marlin Club’s Canyon Kick Off tournament this weekend you can expect the fish to be biting and the docks to be busy!!
