The air temperatures in Ocean City turned a little more seasonal today with highs not getting out of the 40s, and unfortunately the wind blew a little harder than we’d like for rock fishing again. There were some rock caught in the surf near Cape Henlopen, DE which is a good sign for some fish moving this direction.
I got a report from my buddy Eric Sexton who decided to do some fishing yesterday despite the wind. Eric and his son-in-law Logan Pusey couldn’t get out in the ocean so they decided to trailer the boat to Snow Hill and do some light tackle fishing on the Pocomoke River. Eric and Logan used small jigs and minnows and were rewarded with yellow perch, crappie, catfish and two large mouth bass. Not bad fishing considering the wind was blowing 20 knots.
The Pocomoke is only 20 minutes from Ocean City and offers some great fishing for bass, crappie, white and yellow perch, pickerel, bluegill and even rockfish. It’s a great spot to take the kids or to scratch that fishing itch when the wind just won’t let you get out of the inlet.
