If I had to use one word to describe today’s scales action for the 26th Annual MidAtlantic Tournament I would simply say, “WOW!”  We knew that we were going to have some impressive fish hit the dock today when late this morning the Goin’ In Deep out of Sunset Marina Facebooked a picture of a really big blue marlin that they had decked that they said would be coming to the scale.  Less than an hour later the Goin’ In Deep Facebooked another photo of a HUGE Allison tuna that they had decked that would also be coming to the scale.  Well the Goin’ In Deep did come to the scale and so did a few other boats including the Let it Ride who also had a huge blue marlin to weigh.   By the time 9 PM rolled around there were several changes to the leaderboard……here’s what The MidAtlantic looks like with one day to fish and 146 boats left to do it.

The Burt boys were fishing The MidAtlantic today on board the Pumpin’ Hard and though they didn’t catch anything for the scale they did have a good day going 3 for 6 on white marlin releases.

Captain Luke Blume and the C Boys had a good day fishing the Washington Canyon while fishing the MidAtlantic today with three white marlin releases.

Away from the tournament bottom fishing on ocean structure was good for Captain Chris Mizurak and the Angler today.  Captain Chris put his clients on some keeper flounder and some big sea bass once again today.

Captain John Prather of Ocean City Guide Service found a couple of keeper flounder on the incoming tide today.  Captain John put this angler on keepers of 17.5″ and 19″ on white Gulp baits.

Captain Marc Spagnola of Dusk to Dawn Bowfishing was honoring some of our nation’s finest from Freedom Hunters today.  Captain Marc put these shooters from the Army, Navy and Marines on some good action for cow nosed and souther rays today.  Thank you for your service gentlemen!
