Now that post-tropical cyclone Hermine is out to sea it’s time to think fishing again.  She definitely messed things up inshore and offshore for a few days, but it could have been much worse.  Hermine was predicted to stall just off our coast through Wednesday and then slowly meander to the north and east.   That really could have done a number on ocean fishing interests for several days.  Thankfully Hermine has already moved well to our north and east and at this point is mainly pushing a swell in our direction.  It will be a day or two before the ocean becomes fishable, but the party boats could be out there as early as Wednesday and the offshore fleet will be in the canyons as soon as possible.

I’ve already heard of some fish being caught in the back bays of Ocean City and the offshore fleet will be anxious to get back out to the canyons to see if the white marlin are still around.  I’ll let you know here as soon as someone gets on the water and the reports come rolling in.

Here are the inshore and offshore forecast for boats that will be fishing in, around and out of Ocean City inlet.
