There was a lot of action happening around the docks today with us seeing young happy anglers coming back with their catches. With the Ocean City Marlin Clubs Kid Classic starting today we saw a mix of inshore fishing with seabass and tilefish and offshore fishing with tuna and marlin. As it was yesterday, most of the marlin action was in the Baltimore with the yellowfin tuna bite down in the Washington. We had the following boats fish in the Baltimore today, “Osprey” returned with 4 white marlin releases, “Zipper” returned with 1 yellowfin and 1 dolphin, “DA Sea” released 1 blue marlin and caught 20 tilefish and 10 mahi! “Fish On” released 2 white marlin and caught 2 yellowfin, “Billfisher” released 1 white and 1 blue marlin along with 1 dolphin, “Reel Joy” released 2 white marlin as well as the “Absolute Pleasure”, “Sea Hunt” caught 3 dolphin and 1 wahoo. Tuna fishing in the Washington was the “Fish Tricks” with 2 yellowfin and 1 dolphin, “Marli” did a little deep dropping action and brought back 18 golden tilefish and 1 yellowfin, “White Lightning” was chunking and picked up 3 nice yellowfin along with a bigeye! In the Poormans, “Buckshot” came back with 2 dolphin, 23 tilefish and 9 seabass, “No Quarter” brought back 2 yellowfin and 6 dolphin at the Rockpile. Traveling up top the Wilmington was the “My Cin” who had a mix of 2 yellowfin, 1 dolphin, 1 wahoo and 1 swordfish!
It looks like boats are starting to resort to chunking and using the greenstick for tuna but like yesterday they were a nice class of fish with some weighing into the 60lb range! Fishing is great right now so get the rods ready or call the marina office today at 410-213-9600 to let us fix you up with a charter!
