22nd Annual Mako Mania Payouts and Results

It was a miserable day today in and around Ocean City.  So miserable in fact that the one boat that still had a day to fish the final day of the Mako Mania didn’t even leave the inlet so by all accounts the tournament ended yesterday evening.  There was some good fishing inshore this weekend and I got some late reports to show just how good it was and will be in the coming weeks.

First up let’s wrap up the 22nd Annual Mako Mania at Bahia Marina with who won what category and how much prize money they won.

Inshore fishing has been pretty good lately with lots of fish coming from the south jetty, the route 50 bridge and behind Assateague Island.  Captain John Prather of Ocean City Guide Service has been having good luck with flounder on Gulp baits in the south bay and has caught some nice bluefish at the south jetty.  Captain John had Captain Anthony Matarese and his daughter Emila out and put them on some nice flatties.

Captain Dave Caffrey of On the Run out of Bahia Marina had a trip yesterday with Jason Martin and his family.  Jason, his dad and his son Jackson had a great time on the south jetty catching and releasing a dozen tautog up to 19″ and 5 rockfish up to 27 1/2″.

Betsy Berry submitted this photo of Tom “Bluefish” Berry who landed a 6′ sandbar shark from the Assategue surf on mullet over the weekend.

Captain Marc Spagnola of Dusk to Dawn Bowfishing had some good shooting with this group from West Virginia last night.  Captain Marc put them on some nice cow nosed rays under the lights.
