Ocean City white marlin charters
Ocean City, MD is famous among sportfishing enthusiasts around the globe for The White Marlin Open, the world’s largest and richest billfish tournament. Just as many spectators flock to The White Marlin Open every year as competitive anglers. Celebrities are in regular attendance; hunting for a Michael Jordan sighting has nearly become a subcategory of the tournament. At White Marlin, as it’s known locally, celebrities take a backseat to the true stars of the show – the White Marlin themselves.
Although the big show is what we all hear about, white marlin fishing in Ocean City is a daily event throughout the season. You can catch white marlin while fishing for tuna or you can set the spread and fish with lighter weight tackle to target them direct. Either way, you are not limited to what kind of fish may take the bait.
White Marlin may be smaller than their cousins, the Blue Marlin, at an average weight of between 50 and 90 pounds, but what they lack in size, they make up for in showmanship. White Marlin travel in hunting packs and can be extremely aggressive. Even so, it’s no easy task to get these evasive tricksters on the line, and every bit worth the effort.
The performance put on by the White Marlin once hooked is absolutely mesmerizing. Seemingly the trapeze artists of the sea, White Marlin’s provide anglers fortunate enough to get a front row seat with an incomparable spectacle of awe-striking acrobatics and an ever artistic show of rainbow colors dancing upon a sea stage in the sunshine. Given their status assea-lebrities, White Marlin are released once reeled in so that the show may, in fact, go on.
