Offshore fishing was a little slow today, but the dock was buzzing.  Most boats are preparing for next week’s White Marlin Open that begins Monday.  Tomorrow will most likely be another prep day as boats sign up at Harbor Island, put new line on reels, pull drags and sharpen hooks in preparation for the largest billfish tournament in the world.

Captain Joe Drosey on Rhonda’s Osprey out of Ocean City got a practice day in today catching and releasing three white marlin.  At least one of the fish was a bruiser of a white that I’m sure Captain Joe comes across again next week

Talk about a great day of billfishing!!  The ladies on the Grande Pez with Captain Pat Svehla released a blue marlin and four white marlin on the second day of the Ocean City Marlin Club “Heels and Reels” Tournament.


Inshore it was rough and the fishing was tough.  We held the 7th Annual Sigma Pi Flounder Pounder on board the Bay Bee today and conditions were harsh. The wind was absolutely howling out of the south, combine that with an outgoing tide that was ripping to the inlet, and it was tough to catch a flounder.  Nonetheless, the sky was sunny and we had a great time with Captain Mark Hoos Jr at the helm and the lovely Heather as our mate.
