The Mako Mania is a mako shark tournament with added entry levels for bluefish and thresher shark. This tournament is traditionally the start of the tournament season in Ocean City. Mako mania was started in 1996 by Captain Steve Harman and continues to grow every year. The Mako Mania is unique in that boats of all sizes can compete with decent weather. Daily weigh-ins will be held at Bahia Marina from 4:00 pm until 7:00 pm each fishing day. Stop by, have a beverage and something to eat at FishTales while watching the sharks come in to be weighed.
Moore Bills Saturday June 1, 2013: After a long ride earlier this week, we switched gears and made our way a bit closer in for same shark action. Arms and backs got a workout today as we brought 14 Blu Shark to the boat and kept a nice sized Mako shark.

Captain Mark Sampson on the "Fish Finder" had the heaviest mako today weighing in at 189 pounds. High hook went to Captain Rob Skillman on the "Moore Bills" who reported 14 blue shark releases and returned with a mako. Another fantastic day of shark filled fishing was had on the "Blood Sweat and Tears" with Captain Jeremy Blunt who reported releasing 2 makos, 2 blue sharks, and a hammerhead. The "Reel Attitude" with Captain Mark Deimler also had a good day of fishing and reported releasing a few makos and blue sharks. Yet another mako was released on the "Bill$ 4 Bills" with Captian Mike Conner. Our private boats also had a great deal of luck today. Captain Ron Bortnick on the "Lady J" returned with a substantial sized mako weighing in at 112 pounds. Aboard the "Out-rea-geous" another private boat Captain Rea Roy landed a 217 pound thresher shark. A 118 pound mako was also boated on the "Lunasea" with Captain Larry Dougherty at the helm. While shark fishing has really picked up, the bay fishing continues to improve as well!
