It was another awesome day of white marlin fishing out in the canyons today except this time it was the ladies turn. Today was day 1 of the Ocean City Marlin Club’s Heels and Reels Tournament and the ladies showed us, like they show us most things, that they catch fish better than we do too. There were a bunch of fish caught and the crews had a lot of fun. Big thanks to Amanda Shick and Dave Messick for the shots!
Outside of the tournament Captain Jeff Coats of Pitboss Fishing had a good day chunking on the Twin Wrecks. Captain Jeff put his anglers on the Bad Influence on some mahi action chunking butterfish.
Rhonda’s Osprey with Captain Joe Drosey and mate Sasha Lickle released 6 white marlin today during the Heels and Reels Tournament.
Anglers on the Angler with Captain Chris Mizurak had a great day of fishing today. Captain Chris had anglers with nice sea bass and keeper flounder fishing clams over ocean structure.
The Morning Star with Captain Monty Hawkins had some keeper flounder come over the rail today as well. Here’s a nice shot from mate Wes Pollitt of some of the lucky anglers.
Captain John Prather on Ocean City Guide Service took advantage of the super clean water in the back bay to put today’s anglers on some keeper flounder using live minnows.
Dusk to Dawn Bowfishing with Captain Marc Spagnola had a crazy good day of bow fishing today. Captain Marc put his shooters on some great southern ray shots including fish of 66 and 90 pounds.
I had a chance to get the Fish in OC Carolina Skiff out on the bay today for a great trip with my brother and his boys. Myself, my son Ryan, my brother Jimmy and his sons “Little” Jimmy and William fished the south bay behind Assateague and had some pretty good luck. Both of my nephews caught their first ever salt water fish. My son Ryan was high hook on the boat with two throwbacks and keeper at 18″. We had the one keeper and five other throwbacks total on live minnows and had a great time!
My brother Jimmy was low man today with one puny sea bass, but he still wanted in the fishing report. I assured him that neither his hair, nor his beard, nor his fish was worthy of the fishing report, but he begged and pulled the “brother card” so here he is.
Dave Messick took an awesome shot of the end to an awesome day today at Sunset Marina.
