I’m going to skip the small talk tonight and get right to it….the tuna bite off of Ocean City is on fire right now.  There are still a few bluefin and bigeye tuna being caught right now, but the yellowfin tuna fishing is highlighting the offshore scene.   The offshore guys are using ballyhoo and spreader bars to catch double digit keeper yellowfin and release sometimes double digit throwbacks.  That means action pretty much all day.  You never know when these bites are going to turn on….or turn off, so if you’re looking to book a tuna charter look no further than right now.

Captain Mark Hoos and mate Mark Stephens put Josh Voelker from Ducks Unlimited and his crew on the meat today. They boxed 16 yellowfin tuna up to 60 pounds and released another dozen.

Captain Brad McCabe of Baytime Charters used his day off to do a little flounder fishing on his own today.  Captain Brad fished the west channel and near the Thorofare and ended up not having enough hands for his 18″, 19″ and 19.5″ keepers.
