Tough Fishing but Some Got it Done

We had a tough day at the office today. Just like any business, we’ve got to take the good with the bad. Today wasn’t exactly bad, but it wasn’t great either. Offshore there were bluefin, yellowfin and mahi to be had at the inshore lumps, but it wasn’t great. Inshore there were some Flounder caught, but it wasn’t terrific. Overall it was a so-so day on the water.

Captain John Prather scratched a day out of it catching some Flounder for his customers and reported a slow pick for keepers but steady action on throwbacks. The water should be clean by this weekend with a forecast of north wind coming which should bring some clean ocean water into the bay. White Gulp was the ticket drifting along the north jetty.


Offshore, Captain Luke Blume on the White Lightning out of Sunset Marina had two bluefin and three yellowfin, but reported the fishing was “tough”.

Captain Rob Skillman on the Moore Bills out of the Ocean City Fishing Center had two bluefin and two yellowfin for the box, and released another three yellowfin that were under the 27″ minimum.


The big tent is set up at The Ocean City Fishing Center awaiting the 28th Annual Ocean City Tuna Tournament. This is an awesome event and should see lots of fish come to the scales with all of the bluefin, yellowfin and bigeye tuna that are around. The scales are open at The Ocean City Fishing Center from 4PM – 7:30PM Friday and Saturday, and from 4PM – 7PM on Sunday. Bring the whole family and check out the big tuna that will hit the scales! I’ll see you there!
