Insane Offshore Action

By Scott Lenox

Insane Offshore Action

The white marlin bite in the canyons was InSAnE today!!  Boats out of Ocean City are fishing in both the Washington and Norfolk Canyons.  Boats that fished the Washington today did crazy good with some seeing 20 or more fish and catching a dozen or more, but some boats that fished the Norfolk had incredible action.  Some Virginia Beach boats and the part of the fleet from Ocean City willing to make the trip saw dozens and dozens of fish, and I got a report from a reliable source that one boat had released over 40 white marlin.  There are a couple of boats staying overnight tonight who will be there at first light to really take advantage of the fishing.  One of those boats has already caught a super slam today.  That’s a white marlin, a blue marlin, a sailfish and a spearfish.  Like I said, insane!

Team Hileman had a banner day on the charter boat MARLI with Captain Mark Hoos and mate Mark Stephens. They boxed 19 big dolphin, a 50lb wahoo and released eight white marlin. The seas were calm and the action was steady all day.


Captain Jeremy Blunt on board the Wrecker out of the Ocean City Fishing Center was part of the fleet that was in the Washington Canyon today.  Captain Jeremy put his crew on 13 white marlin releases on trolled ballyhoo.  Captain Jeremy put Nick Denny on his first white marlin release.  In return, Nick hooked up some great shots of the action.

My buddy Eric Sexton fished 50 fathoms north of the Washington Canyon today and was four releases for eight white marlin bites.  They saw a total of 10 fish.

The ocean bottom fishing was good today as well.  Captain Chris Mizurak on the Angler out of the Talbot Street Pier reported sea bass and flounder action with some nice sized fish coming over the rail.

The Ocean Princess with Captain Victor Bunting is seeing some nice bottom fishing action.  The Ocean Princess has had sea bass, flounder and some nice triggerfish recently.

Bear at the Oceanic Pier submitted a photo of Frank from Berlin, MD who had a nice day on the pier today.  Frank caught two keeper flounder of 17″ and 18″ on the pier’s big minnows.
