We’ve got more Tuna than you can handle at the Sunset Marina docks! Today we saw more Tuna than we have seen all year- with massive numbers of Yellowfin, Bluefin, and Big Eye Tuna showing up.
The ‘Osprey’ came back with 3 Bluefins, 3 Big Eye’s. and 5 Yellowfin, the ‘My Cin’ had 5 Yellowfin and 1 Bigeye, The Second Chance had 6 Yellowfin, The ‘Zipper’ had 4 Yellowfin, and to complete the D-Dock crew the ‘C-Boys’ had 5 Yellowfin, 3 Bluefin, and 2 Mahi (They also reported releasing 10 Yellowfin and 10 Bluefin). The ‘Grande Pez’ had 8 Yellowfin, just behind the “Dawg Haus’ who had 9
Yellowfin. All of these boats fished the Poor Mans.
On C-Dock, the ‘Marli’ returned with 6 Yellowfin and released 4, The ‘White Lightning’ returned with 2 Big Eye’s and 5 Yellowfin, and the ‘Reel Chaos’ crew returned with 2 Big Eye and 2 Yellowfin Tuna. All of our C-Dock crew fished the Poor Mans.
In other news, we learned today that the ‘Fish Whistle’ out of Indian River caught and released the first White Marlin. While that is very exciting news to report- they did not fish out of Ocean City’s inlet, which means $11,000 is still up for grabs! Local businesses (Sunset Marina, OCFC, and Atlantic Tackle included) teamed up to donate $6,000 on top of the $5,000 that the Town of OC awards to the first White Marlin out of the Ocean City inlet. So, a whopping $11,000 is still up for grabs!
