It was a pretty dreary day in and around Ocean City with intermittent showers and “not so nice” fishing conditions. There were still some folks out on the bay and since the ocean looks closed for business tomorrow due to high winds, the offshore fleet was out getting a day in before a short blow.
Captain Luke Blume on the C Boys had slower fishing than boats had yesterday, but he did manage two yellowfin tuna that were bigger than most of what has been caught recently.
The crew of Rhonda’s Osprey with Captain Joe Drosey had a slower bite today than yesterday as well, but Captain Joe did have a big 105 pound bluefin. They also released another 100 pound bluefin and four yellowfin during the trip.
Captain Chris Mizurak has already cancelled tomorrow’s trip on the Angler due to the weather, but he did have some nice fish come over the rail on today’s trip. Captain Chris put anglers on some nice sized sea bass and a couple of tautog.
The Ocean Princess with Captain Victor Bunting has experienced some so-so fishing due to the weather recently, but he has put anglers on some sea bass, flounder and even a couple of tautog.
Bear down at the Oceanic Pier in downtown Ocean City has seen some nice lately that have been caught on the pier and in the Ocean City inlet. Anglers have caught some nice keeper flounder and a few keeper rockfish. John also caught a keeper red drum and Ted from Virginia caught a monster 26″, 12 pound sheepshead.
Captain Marc Spagnola of Dusk to Dawn Bowfishing has had some great shooting the past few days. Captain Marc has put his shooters on some great action with houndfish, cow nosed rays and southern rays both day and night.
Matt Ellis of the Ocean City Fishing Community had some great luck in the east channel recently. Matt used a Spro bucktail and Gulp rig to catch three nice keeper flounder of 18″, 19″ and 22″.
