I am in Las Vegas for the annual iCast Tackle Industry show. I received some great reports from the OC shop which I will post here.

The grade of BFT being caught on the inshore lumps off the coast of Maryland, Delaware and Virginia has improved since the Ocean City Tuna Tournament. Bluefins have been weighed at the local OC marinas weighing 217, 188, 172#, with the cookie cutter size being around 150#.

Reports are coming into the shop that indicate some new hotspots such as the Tea Cup, Sausages, Elephant Trunk and the Chicken Bone. The Hot Dog, Masseys Canyon and the Hambone are still producing, but these spots have been hammered recently. The weather looks good going forward. Get out there since this bite will not last forever.

Here are the reports from Sunset Marina:

Yesterday:

"Osprey" went to the Hot Dog today and caught 10 bluefins and released 8 of them. The "Clear Shot" went to the Twin Wrecks and caught a dolphin. All the rest of the boats went to the Hambone. "Pumbin Hard" caught 3 bluefins and released 2 of them. "All In" caught 2 dolphins and 1 bluefin. "Reel Joy" caught 2 bluefins. "Muff Diver" caught 14 bluefins and released 12 of them, one of the ones they kept weighed in at 158 lbs.
