Another absolutely beautiful day in and around Ocean City with sunny skies, warm temps and light winds had anglers out in droves and a couple of boats offshore trolling to see what’s up.
Just a day after they dropped a 292 pound mako on the dock at Sunset Marina the crew of the MARLI with Captain Mark Hoos was the first boat to capture a bluefin tuna, a yellowfin tuna and a mahi for the 2018 season. Captain Mark and crew travelled to the Poor Man’s Canyon where they found water in the mid 60s and the first tuna of the year. The crew of Marli ended the day with three bluefin tuna, three yellowfin tuna and three mahi for an awesome May day in the deep. Thanks to the crew at Sunset Marina for the shot!
Just a little closer to shore the All In with Captain Scott Stapleford out of Bahia Marina had a load of fish on board today. The crew of All In had some BIG knot head sea bass and several blueline tilefish.
Anglers at the Oceanic Pier in downtown Ocean City saw good fishing again today. Bear sent in these shots of Dawn from PA with a nice bluefish and Kim from Pittsburgh, PA with some nice bluefish caught on finger mullet.
Captain Marc Spagnola of Dusk to Dawn Bowfishing was over on the Nanticoke River for some nighttime shooting last night and had a successful trip. Captain Marc put his shooters on some nice gar shooting and a nice snakehead under the lights.
The first fishing tournament of the season kicks off tomorrow with the Ocean City Marlin Club’s Memorial Day Tournament. The entry fee for the tournament is just $300 and you do not have to be a member of the club to participate. Sign ups and Captain’s Meeting are tomorrow night at the club.
