The offshore bite today was a little…..well…..off. The Tuna fishing was slower than it’s been for a while and even eluded some boats completely. There were several Dolphin around to save the day and a few White Marlin releases, which are always exciting. The action moved to the Poor Man’s canyon today, but may be someplace else tomorrow if the Tuna action doesn’t pick back up.
Inshore the Flounder fishing is some of the best I’ve seen in years. Party boats, charter boats and private anglers are all having good luck on the incoming tide with 4″ Gulp swimming mullet and live minnows. The action is good at the Rt 50 bridge in the east channel, the south side of the south jetty and behind Assateaugue Island in a spot we call the “Duck Blinds”.
Here’s what our boats reported today.
Captain Joe Drosey on board Rhonda’s Osprey out of Sunset Marina had a better day than most with three nice Yellowfin, some gaffer size Dolphin and a White Marlin release.
Captain Luke Blume on the White Lightning out of Sunset Marina missed out on the Tuna, but put his anglers on several gaffer Dolphin.
Captain Mark Hoos on the Marli had one Yellowfin, one Dolphin and one White Marlin release.
Inshore the party boat Judith M with Captain Don Hetherington had a good day with some keeper Flounder from the inshore wrecks.
Captain John Prather on the Ocean City Guide Service reported 6 keeper Flounder from his morning trip.
Captain Monty Hawkins on the party boat Morning Star out of the Ocean City Fishing Center is catching Sea Bass and Flounder this time of year, you can see his fishing report here: Morning Star Fishing Report
