We had some absolutely awesome Yellowfin tuna fishing offshore today at the triple 0’s in the Washington canyon.  Boats trolling Ballyhoo and spreader bars caught several Yellowfin tuna in the 40-60 pound class with some bigger fish and a few Bigeye tuna mixed in.  There was also a decent White Marlin bite and at least one Blue Marlin release.

Captain Mark Hoos and Mate Mark Stephens on the charter boat Marli out of Sunset Marina had the best day with the Yellowfin.  They put Ken Pfeiffer and his crew on 20….yes 2o Yellowfin tuna at the Rock Pile on Ballyhoo and spreader bars.


Captain Joe Drosey on Rhonda’s Osprey out of Sunset Marina had a terrific day with an approximate 350 pound Blue Marlin release, two White Marlin releases and 10 nice gaffer Dolphin.


The White Lightning with Captain Luke Blume and mate John Griffith out of Sunset Marina had a great day with the Yellowfin tuna at the triple 000s in the Washington canyon.  Captain Luke and mate John were able to box 12 Yellowfin and some nice gaffer Dolphin.


Captain Jeremy Blunt and mate Brian Behe on the Wrecker out of the Ocean City Fishing Center put their crew on nine really nice Yellowfin, some gaffer Dolphin and had a White Marlin release.
