We had another short rain shower and a little bit of wind today, but overall it was pretty beautiful. Overall, offshore fishing was pretty light as boats prep for the 45th Annual White Marlin Open, but there were some tuna caught  by a few.

Today was the second and final day for the Ocean City Marlin Club Heels and Reel’s tournament and the ladies really showed us how it’s done. The big money winner was the MR Ducks who brought home most releases and largest tuna for a total of over $26,000. Their win also comes with a cool story where the boat broke down and had to limp in, but the crew of the C Boys with Captain Luke Blume at the helm brought their tuna back to the scale along with their catch report to save the day. Congratulations to all the ladies on the awesome fishing!

Outside of the tournament Captain Joe Drosey of Rhondas Osprey put this crew on a couple of nice bluefin tuna on the chunk today.

Captain John Prather of Ocean City Guide Service found a couple of nice keepers Flounder on this afternoon’s trip in some pretty dirty water.

Young Louden Swain was fishing with his family in the east channel and landed this beauty of a 24″ flounder all by himself.  Compliments to Captain John Prather of Ocean City Guide service for the picture.

Last night Captain Chase Eberle of Chasin Tides Charters had some really good catch and release shark action with sand tigers over 6’ and today it was an inshore trolling trip with a boat limit of bluefish.


I had the pleasure of fishing on the Bay Bee today with my fraternity brothers from Sigma Pi fraternity at Towson State University and we had an absolutely awesome time! It’s always great to catch up with these guys and have some fun catching flounder down here in my neck of the woods. Ryan Abbot caught the first fish and was awarded some prize money and yours truly caught the most and the biggest. Yes I am getting some grief for it!
