It was yet another slow day at the marina today, due to weather, with only the ‘Marli’ being the brave soul to venture out today. Although they were the only boat out fishing, they sure made the most of it! The ‘Marli’ ran out to the Baltimore Canyon and returned with 4 yellowfin, 10 dolphin, 2 blue marlin releases, and 1 white marlin release resulting in a fantastic day for the captain and crew! Hopefully this fishing keeps up with the Ocean City Tuna Tournament being a couple days away.

It was quite the slow day out on the docks, as the weather deterred most of our boats from fishing. The ‘Marli’ was one of the brave souls to venture out today catching 2 dolphin in the Hambone. The ‘Pumpin Hard’ also ventured out today and caught 8 dolphin and 1 king mackerel out of the Massey’s Canyon.
