It was another busy scales day for the 24th Annual MidAtlantic Tournament hosted by the Canyon Club Resort and Marina in Cape May, NJ with a weigh port at Sunset Marina in Ocean City.  We’ve been covering the scale everyday at Sunset Marina for Hooked on OC and we’ve seen a bunch of fish so far.  Today there were several white marlin weighed at Sunset that didn’t quite make the 65 pound minimum and yet another blue marlin that certainly did.  There are two days left to get something done and some experienced crews left to do it so anything can happen.  Here’s how it breaks down after day 3.

Wahoo

There was no change in the wahoo category today so the 3rd heaviest wahoo still belongs to the Lady Luck with their 49 pounder.

White Marlin

Up until today there was only one white marlin that had made the 65 pound minimum and that fish belonged to the Lady Luck and weighed exactly 65 pounds.  Well the Lady Luck’s 65 pound white is now in a tie for 2nd place with another 65 pounder that was caught aboard the Reel Toy and weighed today at Sunset Marina.
