The inshore lumps continue to produce good numbers of quality over and under Bluefin Tuna. Mixed in the Ocean City boats are catching Mahi Mahi (so good you have to say it twice). The hot spots have consistantly been the Hambone, Hot Dog, Parking Lot, and Massey's Canyon. The inshore weather looks fishable for the next 5-6 days.

Not too many boats are spending the money to fish the canyons right now, but I bet there is a good bite that nobody knows about.

We are hoping for some new water coming off the stream which hopefully will bring yellowfin tuna, wahoo, and Marlin. The NC boys are on a pretty good wahoo bite at the moment and up north, there is a good YFT bite on that nice piece of water at the Hudson Canyon.

It appears that a new eddy is beginning to form due east of the mouth of the Chesapeake - we will keep an eye on it and report later. As for Bertha, the hurricane is not a direct threat to North America, but indirectly, it'll generate waves which will head toward the East Coast. Let's just say, fishing may be SWELL this weekend and beyond. See projected path below:
