So you wanna catch a sea monster.
Forty miles off Ocean City Maryland begins the slope waters of the famed canyons. This slope begins at 240’ and continues until the steep canyon walls begin around 400’. There the bottom plunges to several thousand feet. This steep drop creates a condition known as upwelling. Where the nutrient rich waters for the deep are forced upward by the canyon walls. This deep blue nutrient rich water is a mecca for tuna, marlin, mahi and wahoo. Fin Chaser doesn’t have just one but three canyons well within range for our charters. Another advantage Ocean City has over its northern neighbors is that these canyons are all within fifty-seven miles of our inlet, much closer than those off NJ, NY and Mass. The first tuna usually show up in these waters in early June and remain through October. The others show up in mid/late June and hang around until mid/late October. Not only do these canyons provide epic fishing, you’ll also experience sights straight out of a NatGeo documentary: whales of all sizes, acres and acres of dolphin—many times swimming less than ten feet from your camera—huge sea turtles lazing in the sun, and even some super weird sights like a mola-mola (aka: ocean sunfish).
