Happy October everyone! The Fall weather is here, and we are beginning to see the transient traffic that we see every fall with boats making the trip down south for the winter season. After some recent rough days offshore, today looked promising and resulted in two boats fishing out of Sunsets port. The ‘G-Force’ fished the Baltimore and caught 49 Dolphin, and the ‘Marli’ fished the Poor Mans returning with an incredible 60 Dolphin! Capt. Mark Hoos plans to fish tomorrow and stated that he hopes to find some tuna for his charter. Be sure to check in with us tomorrow to see if Mark was able to find the fish!

The Tunas are here- just before Maria arrives off of our coast. The ‘Boss Hogg’ caught 6 Albacore Tunas and 3 Yellowfin. Fishing alongside the ‘Boss Hogg’ was the ‘Marli’, who returned with 5 Albacores and 6 Yellowfin. Both vessels fished the Baltimore Canyons. Rough seas are expected in the next couple of days in the wake of Hurricane Maria- but we are eager to see if the weekend will bring some favorable weather!

It was a beautiful day at the marina with the temperature making it feel like summer is still here and the fleet bringing back some nice fish to the docks. Most of the fleet fished in the Washington again today starting with the crew of the ‘Osprey’ who returned with 7 dolphin. The ‘G-force’ had two nice wahoo and 10 dolphin while the ‘Marli’ returned with 25 dolphin. One dolphin weighed in at 32 lbs taking the spot on our leaderboard!! The crew of the ‘Legasea’ chose to fish in the Norfolk canyon and released 2 white marlin. Finally the crew of the ‘Espadon’ went to the Jackspot and returned with a few dolphin and 2 wahoo. Some of our boats are fueling up and keeping an eye on the weather hoping to sneak back out there again tomorrow so stay tuned!

An excellent day of fishing our of Sunset today from only two boats! The ‘No Quarter’ fished the Poor Mans, returning with 3 Dolphin, 4 Yellowfin, and 1 Wahoo. They also released 5 White Marlin. The ‘No Quarter’ crew also fished yesterday, returning after our facilities closed. Yesterday they released a whopping 8 White Marlin and 1 Blue Marlin, returning with 3 Yellowfin and 3 Dolphin.
The ‘Marli’ fished south of the Poor Mans, returning with 3 Wahoo and 3 Dolphin. They caught 2 White Marlin as well, releasing one, however the other unfortunately did not survive the fight and was brought back to the docks. That fish weighed in at an amazing 101lbs, a fishg worth some serious cash had it been caught just a few weeks prior.
A lot of boats are planning to fish tomorrow, certainly in search of a heavy White Marlin bite!

While all of these boats fished the Baltimore, the ‘Rhondas Osprey’ ventured to the Washington where he released 3 White Marlin and caught 9 Dolphin. A great day was had by all boats, and a few others plan to fish tomorrow! With the Challenge Cup fast approaching, it’s good news to see growing numbers of White Marlin in our regions waters. What will we see at the docks tomorrow evening?

Could the Fall marlin bite finally be in our waters? It is certainly looking so! The ‘G-Force’ returned flying 5 White Marlin release flags from their day in the Baltimore. The ‘Grande Pez’ weighed in a whopping 81 lb Wahoo and paired it with 8 White Releases had the crew smiling from ear to ear. The ‘Top Dog’ released 4 White Marlin releases and also fished the Baltimore.
A huge chunk of the fleet appears to be fishing tomorrow, and we are certain this Marlin bite won’t go away so easy. Follow us on Facebook and Instagram for the most up-to-date action from the docks! To all anglers fishing tomorrow, happy hunting!
