The 28th Annual Ocean City Tuna Tournament hosted by the Ocean City Fishing Center is in the books and it was another terrific event put on by a top notch facility and staff.  Overall I would have to say the fishing was decent for the tournament…..not slow….not great.  I talked to several captains over the weekend that had one bite all day….two days in a row.  That’s tough fishing, but sometimes one bite is all you need.  We did end up with at least one fish in every category which made for an awesome event that paid out over $650,000 overall.  Here’s how it all breaks down.

Congratulations to all of the winners of the 28th Annual Ocean City Tuna Tournament and to the Ocean City Fishing Center for an awesome event.

In other fishing news away from the Tuna Tournament, Captain Dave Black on board the My Cin out of Sunset Marina had an overnight trip on Saturday and caught a huge bigeye that any boat fishing the Tuna Tournament would have loved to have.  His 209 pound bigeye and 8 tilefish had his crew all smiles when they returned to the dock on Sunday.

Inshore, Captain John Prather on the Ocean City Guide Service out of The Ocean City Fishing Center continues his flounder slaying ways.  Captain John had two more successful trips today that landed his parties throwback and keeper size flounder.  White Gulp is still the ticket!

My buddy Todd Martinek had an overnight trip to the Washington canyon that he reported was very slow.  He says that he must have had 20 boats around him for most of the night and he thinks that most, if not all of them had tough fishing.  Todd didn’t have any luck with the bigeye that he was searching for, but he did land a 16 pound mahi and this 44 pounder which is the largest that I have seen this year.
