On day 4 of the 25th MidAtlantic we saw 73 boats fishing out of Ocean City, MD and 68 boats fishing out of Cape May, NJ.  There were a lot of fish caught today, but the scales were relatively slow at both ports.  The only qualifying fish to hit the leader board did it in a big way though.  The crew of the Fishing For Muscular Dystrophy pulled in to Sunset Marina this afternoon and when asked what they had to weigh on crew member said, “I think we have a pretty good dolphin.”  Well the crew of the FFMD had a VERY good dolphin!  A monster of a mahi tipped the scale at 53 pounds and catapulted the crew into first place in the dolphin category.  Not only did they catch a great fish, but they are fishing for a great cause.

First place in the wahoo category is still held by the crew of the Moore Bills.  Their 75 pound wahoo was caught on Monday and has held the lead for the first four days of the tournament.

It was another really good day of flounder fishing on the local ocean going party boats.  Captain Chris Mizurak from the party boat Angler out of the Talbot Street Pier reported good flounder fishing with some limits around the rail and one nice mahi.
