Marlin (White) Fishing in Ocean City MD

Ocean City deep sea fishing is most known for the late-summer swarm of White Marlin. The abundance was recognized and popularized by creating the annual White Marlin Open, which takes place over several days during the first half of August. Started in 1974, this is among USA's best established fishing tournaments.

Myriads of big game afficionados flock each summer to Maryland's oceanside to either spectate or take part in hunting this stylish, but fierce billfish. Seeing as Whites are so numerous and feed at the surface, they are easy to find and accessible just miles from the shore.
