Day three of the 4th Annual Ocean City Marlin Club Rockfish Tournament is in the books and last year’s winner Nontypical made an appearance on the leader board.  It sounds like the fish were a little closer to home today with reports of nice schools of fish just north of the Indian River inlet.  Just yesterday a potential new Delaware state record was caught in this area with a huge rockfish of 62 pounds.  We haven’t seen anything in that class for the OCMC Rockfish Tournament yet, but there are still some really good fishermen that haven’t fished their first day yet and there are still six days of fishing.  This is what the leaderboard looks like after three days.


Bad Oyster

33.0 pounds     45.0″ length     23.5″ girth


Some more nice fish for Bad Oyster from today.

Fish Frenzi

25.4 pounds     37.5″ length     23.0″ girth



22.4 pounds     36″ length     22.0″ girth


Captain Jeremy Blunt and the crew of the Wrecker were bumped from their third place spot on the leaderboard, but had a good day of rockfishing.  The crew combined for six rockfish and Captain Jeremy reported seeing fish feeding all over the surface at one point.  Captain Jeremy’s lovely wife Jennifer from the Ocean City Fishing Center caught her first rockfish and it ended up being a double header.

Except for some looming clouds it was yet another beautiful day in Ocean City and offshore in the canyons.  The tuna fishing out in the deep was pretty tough today from what I hear, but there… READ MORE
