It was a windy day offshore today and it’s going to get windier before it settles down.  The forecast is calling for some pretty stiff winds over the next couple of days so I’m guessing that the ocean going fleet is not going to be ocean going.  There were just a couple of boats that fished offshore today and there were some tuna caught, but I don’t expect any tuna pics in the next couple of days.  Inshore there was some decent flounder fishing, let’s just hope it continues.

I just got word that my buddy Paul Robertson and the crew of Fishing For Muscular Dystrophy won first place in the MSSA Tunament held this weekend.  FFMD caught a 173 pound bigeye yesterday and won first place in the main tournament for boats larger than 31′.  Team angler Niles Morton fought the big bigeye for 2 hours and 50 minutes and landed the big fish that helped the crew of FFMD win largest

fish, two fish stringer and three fish stringer in the 2017 MSSA Tunament.  Congratulations to Paul, Niles and the crew of Fishing For Muscular Dystrophy!

Yesterday Josh Ensor and the crew of the Tunafowl had a good day in the Poor Man’s Canyon.  Josh and crew didn’t get to the canyon until 11 am, but they had two fish on in five minutes and then killed three yellowfin by 3 pm and headed home.


One of the bigger sea bass that I’ve seen this year came over the rail of the Ocean Princess with Captain Victor Bunting.  Lori Lumens of Kennett Square, MD caught this nice four pound knothead over ocean structure with Ocean Princess.


Captain John Prather of Ocean City Guide Service had some good luck casting lures at the route 50 bridge when he put these guys on a nice chopper bluefish and a keeper rockfish.


There was a pretty good flounder bite in the bay on the high tide today.  The Tortuga with Captain Drew Zerbe put anglers on some decent throwback action and a couple of keepers went in the box as well.

The Bay Bee out of the Ocean City Fishing Center had some happy anglers this afternoon when they went home with a couple of keeper flounder.


This morning on the incoming tide, Steve Figiel landed a keeper flounder and a small cobia while fishing the east channel.
