Thanks everyone for the forecasts!

Yeah ive got the same feelings as well. Very skeptical of Saturday, and Sunday with the ugliness of Mondays forecast on the backend now is looking like a long shot. Kills me as I’m dying for some blue water!

I don't see anything in these forcasts that are going to make it nasty, there is going to be a swell but nothing crazy. If I was home I'd be sending it east. If anything I'd be looking to overnight sat into sun that way I wasn't pounding with the wind chop going out Sunday. That high pressure is going to press the sea down and prolly turn the bite off but who knows.

Doubt there’s many reliable reports with the tournament, but we are still heading out tomorrow. Leaving west OC boat ramp at 3am.

it's late just did the 24 hour ocean city fishing tour. Went to poormans after the inlet kicked my ass . 0-2 on whites , pulled 2 hooks guessing tuna bites or maybe just hoping. Killed 1 small mahi and 1 false albi. Finished north to south from 250 fathoms all the way into 30 fathoms. Not much to report

Left IRI at 4am yesterday, couple of rollers in the inlet but ended up being a damn beautiful day out there. Started at Masseys and picked up a couple of dolphin then headed out to the dog and picked up a few more. All dolphin caught on the troll, ended up with 7. We must have found at least 3 floating logs none of which produced any Mahi but one did produce a nice trigger and couple of fun light tackle runs with some bar jacks. Wanted to run south to that break but also didn't want to deal with the parking lot from the tourney so we decided to stick inshore to see if we could find some tuna around. Not much sign of life at Masseys, mostly some small surface bait didn't mark any sand eels. Water hovered between 71-72 all day.

19knots from CI to the tip of the wash. Fished the balls then got as far from that fleet as we could. Plan was light tackle mahi so we stuck to it and got 30+ throughout the day. Picked up a number of triggers with the speargun and fought off almaco jacks and other random critters trying to eat our mahi bait. Saw a number of tripletails but all were on the smaller side.

Also brought this guy home for the fish tank. I googled the image and it looks like a "rough triggerfish"?? First one i've seen. I had another different species of trigger the size of a dime in my bucket too but he escaped.

7/14 left late due to late crew. Made our way out at 21 knots. Ended up going just south of the poormans drilled some holes caught 10 Mahi some slinger and couple gaffers. 1 yellowfin 20 pounds had 1 white window shop. Everything was on hoos or wide trackers. Quartering beam sea was a blast on the ride in

Fished saturday, rough steep ride out, jumped a couple big ones coming out of wachapreague, fortunately it turned out to be a beautiful day offshore.

trolled around with what seemed like 400 boats most of the day and the bite never really turned on, plenty of dolphin to go around, one tuna late in the day. decided to make one last pass to try and box another tuna and a pointed one ate the flatline maybe 15' off the stern at 3 knots as we reset gear, you just never know.

​​​​​​​ended on a good note with a healthy release and enjoyed a slick calm ride in.
