Bluefin Tuna are continue to dominate the offshore scene. Bigger fish have shown up. Fish in the 70 lb to 100 lb range are in the reachable waters off Ocean City.

The biggest fish topped the scales at over 140 lb. Our customers are reporting nice quanities of BFT at the hambone, chicken bone, parking lot, & Masseys canyon.

A few yellowfin showed yesterday , the best of it was in the hotdog area,1 boat while bluefing hooked and landed a 63 lb cobia which was 3 lb short of the Maryland. State record.

Bluefish have thinned out but are still mixed in with the bluefin catches at the above mentioned spots.

We also hear that the Norfolk Canyon is holding some YFT as well as White and Blue Marlin.

The weather conditions look fishable for the next 4-5 days.

From the nicest Marina on the East Coast, Sunset Marina on July 4th:

"Phat Boyz" released 4 bluefin and kept 2 at the chicken bone. "Fin-Ness" released 12 bluefin and kept 2 while fishing the hambone. "Osprey" released 7 bluefin and kept 2 bluefin and a dolphin at the Massey's. "Zipper" released 5 bluefin and kept 2 at the Parking lot. "Evil Eye" fished the hambone and caught a bluefin and 5 bluefish. "Marli" released 3 bluefin and kept 1, and a king mackeral at the parking lot. "Shadowfax" released a blue marlin at the 50 fathom line.

July 3rd:

The "Marli" went to the Parking Lot and caught 2 yellowfins, 1 bluefin and released another 6 bluefins in the 80-100 lb range.

Note: Please keep in mind that fish have tails when using this report to decide where to fish.
