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!
