After a slow week of fishing, the fleet ventured out for the ‘Biggest Fish’ for the Big Fish Classic, pun intended. The tournament, hosted at Talbot St. Pier, boasted a new record payout of over $462,000 to be given out to a few lucky anglers. We are happy to announce that one of our own took most of the pie, with the ‘Reel Tight’ from A-dock winning over $244,000 for their 404.5 lb Blue Marlin. Other winners from Sunset include the Primary Search, who weighed in a swordfish, and the Absolute Pleasure with White Marlin releases, among others.
We certainly saw a chance of pace on the docks, with it feeling more like tournament season with every passing day. New boats are arriving daily, making Sunset Marina their home for the next couple weeks as they prepare to fish the White Marlin Open, Mid-Atlantic, and the other tournaments that fall in-between.
