The Heels & Reels Tournament hosted right here at Atlantic Tackle kicked off with a bang today! Several boats fished the tournament alongside some fun fishers looking for the marlin bite for Monday. Marlin fishing right now is completely off the charts, and luckily it’s reported to be moving closer to Ocean City (Just in time!). Marlin have been moving from water about 100 miles away to the Wilmington Canyons, roughly 80 miles away.
The highlight of the tournament today was the ‘Rhonda’s Osprey’ who released 6 White Marlin and the ‘Brenda Lou’ releasing 9 Whites from the Wilmington! The highest release count today was 15, with most boats reporting 5-8 releases. Fishing is hot! Are you ready for Monday?
