We had peeks of sunshine throughout the day, but overall it was overcast and now it is pouring down rain where I am in Ocean Pines. There are some severe thunderstorms rolling through the area so if you’re out and about be safe.
The 9th Annual Ocean City Marlin Club Memorial Day Tournament is in the books and although only 9 boats participated because of the weather forecast everyone had a good time and the Marlin Club was able to write a nice check to the Kratz Memorial Foundation which is what the tournament is all about. Here are your winners with payout amounts. Congratulations to Fish in OC charter partner Spring Mix II with Captain Chris Watkowski!
There was some decent flounder fishing in the bay on the high tide before the water started getting dirty. Blake Gunther of the Ocean City Fishing Community caught a couple of nice keepers first thing this morning.
