The offshore fishing is on the steady downturn as boats just do not have the clientele that they see in the summer. There were still some tuna in the Washington Canyon as recently as last week and the Boss Hogg caught a limit of mahi just two days ago, but offshore boats just aren’t running as much this time of year. There are still a couple of offshore trips still on the books, but we’ll have to see if the weather cooperates and if there are still fish around if it does.
Inshore fishing on the other hand will be good for the next month and a half or so. We’ll have flounder a round for a couple of weeks, tautog will be on the jetty through the season closure on November 26, and we could see striper runs into January if we’re lucky. One boat that runs inshore charter trips and does really well is the Ocean City Guide Service with Captain John Prather. Captain John had a trip today where he put his party on two of our fall species. Captain John had good luck with flounder on Gulp baits around the route 50 bridge, and also caught some tautog on green crabs on the south jetty. If you’d like to get in on some inshore fishing action in Ocean City with one of the best, you can contact Captain John through this link…..fishinoc.com/ocguideservice
