Day 1 at The OC Inshore Classic and Pending MD State Record Barracuda

We just got back from a very, VERY busy day 1 for the OC Inshore Classic and we’ve got some good fish on the leaderboard.  We had over 30 boats show up to the scales and we weighed over 70 fish between 4 and 7 this evening.  We’ve got fish in every category right now and so far the leaders in each category are all across the board in the added entry levels so they are worth some really good money right now.  Boats are still out there fishing right now and can until lines out tomorrow at 3 PM when scales open up at Atlantic Tackle.  We’ll see you there!  Here’s who’s leading so far.


1st Place     Salty Girl     10.2 Pounds


1st Place     Playdate     5.6 Pounds

2nd Place     Trigger Happy     4.6 Pounds

3rd Place     Mayacht     4.2 Pounds

Outside of the tournament I got a report of what will probably be a new Maryland state record barracuda that was caught offshore yesterday on board the Wrecker with Captain Bobby Layton at the helm.  The fish was 42″ and weighed in at 13 pounds and was caught by angler Stephen Humphrey of Ellicot City, MD.  If confirmed by MD DNR Erik Zlokovitz it will be the first barracuda in the MD State Record books.

Captain Jason Mumford of Lucky Break had a nice day on the bay.  This morning it was some good sheepshead fishing and then this afternoon it was a pile of very tasty pufferfish.

Captain Willie Zimmerman of the RoShamBo had a great day in the canyon today putting some big tunas on deck with some mahi and a bunch of blueline tilefish.

Captain James Coane of the Reel Current had a great day yesterday with two yellowfin tuna and a bunch of mahi.

Dave Neumayer caught this 16.5″ keeper tautog and a bunch of throwbacks fishing the south jetty with sand fleas.

Jeff Weeks, Tim Keener, Gerry Chaveca and Dave Weller on his boat Turn Me Loose went out yesterday and caught a few fish.
