The big game tournament season moves into high gear next week as the White Marlin Open in Ocean City, Maryland runs from Aug. 2 to 6. Most of the N.j. entries will actualy be sailing out of Cape May to join the huge fleet competing for what will probably be well over a million dollars. The bigeye tuna bite was excellent during the recent Jimmy Johnson Quest for the Ring Tournament in Atlantic City (see photo below), and that fishery will draw attention from those not concentrating on white marlin with much lighter tackle.
There was a lack of fishing reports today as many anglers seemed to think it was going to rain before the end of the day. If anything develops, it will be over by tomorrow with dry northwest winds at 15-20 knots before gusting to 30 in the afternoon.
