Canyon fishing exploded today at the Ocean City, Md. White Marlin Open. Lots of whites were released and many weighed as the previously vacant category was filled.
Ocean City boats dominated on their home turf. Hook and Settle ended up the day on top at 74 pounds for a potential $1.1 million, but Sea Toy at 72.5 pounds could make $1.7million. Reel Estate is tied for third at 72 pounds with Reel Steel from Mountain Lakes, N.J.
The new tuna leader is a 121-pounder on Sentient from Slaughter Beach, Md. There are still no blue marlin. Wrecker had a 40-pound dolphin, but Security weighed a 54. Weigh-ins continued to about 10. I’ll have details in the morning.
