Another day of rain and unseasonably cool temperatures in Ocean City made for another day of limited fishing.  It didn’t rain as much today as it did yesterday, but the wind was up this afternoon, it was cool and we had a misty, light rain that was just miserable.  The weather forecast for the next few days calls for mostly cloudy skies, winds out of a northerly direction at 15-20 knots and a chance of rain through Tuesday sometime.  By the looks of this radar I’m not expecting much to be going on until the weather gets straight on Wednesday.

The forecast after Wednesday into the weekend looks pretty good with sunny skies, more seasonable temperatures and light winds.  Hopefully that’s when things really get going.  We’ll have the first tournament of the Ocean City tournament season in the Ocean City Marlin Club Memorial Day Tournament and there should be lots of other anglers on the water.  Here’s hoping the fishing is good so I’ve got lots to report.

I got a submission through a Facebook post today from Tim Bunting who braved the conditions to fish the bay behind Ocean City today.  Tim and crew had a lot of fun with the snapper sized bluefish just north of the route 50 bridge and Kelly Neal Bunting caught this nice 34″, 12 pound “chopper” bluefish.

I like to get the family and friends involved in the report when I get a chance, especially when they don’t get to get out and fish much.  I get to fish all the time and most of my relatives don’t, so it’s cool when I get to see them doing what I love!  My uncle Tim Spesick got a chance to fish out of Deale, MD today for some rockfish and had a great day.  Now that the spring trophy season is over on the Chesapeake Bay the limit is two fish per day with a minimum size of 20″.   They caught and released several nice rock and this 24″ fish went home for dinner.
