Not being able to target and harvest a rockfish outside of the EEZ (Exclusive Economic Zone) stinks!  That’s where most of the rockfish are right now off of Ocean City and it’s a frustrating thing to have fish so close to the beach, but not be able to catch them outside of that three mile limit.

Captain Jeremy Blunt on the Wrecker had a trip today and he felt the pain of not being able to target rockfish outside of the EEZ, but he was fortunate enough to catch one fish inside, and it was a good one.

“We started just south of Indian River Inlet at day break on some lumps right off of the surf.  After an hour of no action we picked up and ran to the 888s outside of Delaware Bay.  Still no bites, and not much bait.  We worked over to Overfall Shoals and had more of the same.  We picked up and ran south then stopped at the Banana and lucked into a bite on Jeremy’s “super dredge”.  The fish was 45″ and 35 pounds.  The water temp was 44 degrees and there was very little bait.  We stayed inside all day, but the big mass of fish has moved offshore 9-15 miles after the big chill last week.”

Here is angler Eric Farrell’s nice rock.
