When I first got word that there were only twelve boats fishing today I had a feeling that it was going to be a slow day at the scales for day two of the 44th Annual White Marlin Open……I was right.  12 boats turned into 10 and I’m pretty sure less than that stayed out all day.  That means that there are over 900 fishing days left over the next three days and that’s an average of over 300 boats per day.  The action at Harbour Island over the next few days could be ridiculous.  Check out our live coverage at www.whitemarlinopen.com

Even though only a few boats fished today we did have some scales action at Harbour Island on day two.  Only one boat came to the scale, but they had five nice yellowfin tuna.  Two of which made it on the leaderboard.  Here’s who’s got what after two days.

Wahoo     Gary Capuana     Hog Wild     55 pounds     $15,000


3rd Place     James Keely     Blue Runner     60 Pounds     $30,000

2nd Place     Jim Stavola      Milling Around     64 Pounds     $100,000

1st Place     James Boynton     Blue Runner     67 Pounds     $460,000

Away from the tournament there was some pretty good flounder fishing for a couple of boats.  Captain John Prather of Ocean City Guide Service found some nice keeper flounder in the north bay on Z Man baits and flounder belly.

My buddy Randy Swain took his son Louden out for some jigging this afternoon after the rain passed and put him on some nice flounder and one nice sea bass.

Captain Drew Zerbe of the Tortuga reported that Richard Szukiewicz from Towson, MD caught this 2 foot eel at the south jetty on a shiner and squid combo to take the prize for ugliest fish during the “Bill’s Seafood” charter. Tortuga mates were Serge Garder and Matt Harris.
