After a blowout yesterday the fish were certainly biting on this beautiful Friday! We finally saw a nice class of yellowfin ‘s again in the 40-50lb range with boats who ventured down in the Washington. We saw a lot of chunks taken out of some fish from the sharks looking for a quick meal so they are an inconvenience to deal with once some fish are hooked. “Marli” was able to pick up 3 nice yellowfins along with “Reel Chaos” who caught 4 yellowfin and 3 dolphin. “Boss Hogg” also fought off the sharks but was able to come home with 3 yellowfin, 2 dolphin, 10 tilefish and 30 seabass. The hot spot for marlin today was the Baltimore with boats having multiple releases while seeing a decent amount of fish. “Osprey” released 1 blue marlin while seeing 2 others and caught 5 dolphin, “Griffin” racked up 4 white marlin while catching 3 dolphin, “Billfisher” had a great day with 3 white marlin releases, “Lights Out” had the hot hand today releasing 5 white marlins! “White Lightening” also returned with having an awesome day releasing 2 white marlin, 1 blue marlin and 14 nice gaffer dolphin! “No Quarter” stayed a little more inshore and picked up 2 yellowfin while “Grande Pez” went up to the Wilmington and caught 1 dolphin and released a white marlin.
Lots of boats are gearing up for tomorrow with the Ocean City Marlin Club’s Kids tournament happening this weekend. It is a great event, putting smiles on a lot of young anglers faces! Stop on by the marina this weekend to see what the crews bring back and see all the happy anglers!
