Today was day 1 of the Ocean City Marlin Club’s 13th Annual Kid’s Classic Tournament and it was a busy one at the scales at Sunset Marina this afternoon.  69 boats are fishing this year’s event with over 300 junior anglers and there are some awesome catches already on the board.  I’ve got to give Amanda Shick from the OCMC and Dave Messick from Hooked on OC props for their hard work at the scales today.  Not only were the scales busy, they had to deal with some wicked thunderstorm activity this afternoon.  Here are the photos from Amanda of today’s action followed by the current standings.  Dave Messick also has all of these shots available for purchase as a print, or on wood and canvas.  If you’re interested you can email sales@hookedonoc.com  Congratulations to all of the kids that fished day 1!

Outside of the Kid’s Classic fishing was pretty good for the offshore tuna fishing fleet.  Capt Todd and mate Tito took Jim Stevens crew and while Jade II (RL52) had Russel Kleen’s party onboard.   Both boats had a great days with the yellowfin tuna.

Captain Chris Little of the Talkin’ Trash reported tougher tuna fishing today, but they did put one yellowfin in the box and 20 nice blue line tilefish.

The Angler with Captain Chris Mizurak had tougher sea bass fishing today than they did yesterday, but they did manage a really nice flounder for this lady angler.

My old friend Steve Merther who I’ve known since elementary school fished the ocean for the Kid’s Classic for a little while today where they had great fun releasing some sharks for the kids.

We had Team Fish in OC out in the Fish in OC Carolina Skiff today for the Kid’s Classic and we decided to fish the bay for a flounder.  My son Ryan had great luck releasing 11 throwback flounder and getting photobombed by his dad.

Captain Marc Spagnola of Dusk to Dawn Bowfishing has had a busy 36 hours.  Yesterday it was cow nosed and southern rays, last night it was more rays and one big hound fish, then today it was back to the cow nosed and southerns.  Captain Marc has been putting his shooters on some great action lately!
