Wow, what an exciting first day of the Ocean City Tuna Tournament!! The scales stayed busy with bigeyes and stringer fish being weighed!! Most of the action happened down in the Washington for our boats trying to land a bigeye. “Reel Chaos” came back to the docks with 3 bigeyes and are holding the 3rd top stringer weight at the current moment! “Grande Pez” caught a Bluefin a dolphin and released a white marlin, “Espadon” also had a nice bigeye and 4 solid yellowfin to be in second place for single heaviest tuna and 1st place stringer! “No Quarter” didn’t get on the tuna but managed to release 2 white marlin. “Pumpin Hard” ventured up to the Wilmington and caught 1 yellowfin and released a white marlin. Boats noted that there were a lot of bites today so the next couple days should be very interesting!

Single Largest Tuna:
1st: Blue Runner- 157lbs
2nd: Espadon- 147lbs
