Today was one of those days where it seemed like everyone that put a line in the water caught the fish that they were looking for. Many of the offshore fleet had great luck with Tuna again, and the White Marlin fishing is really starting to improve over the past few days. There are also some Bigeye tuna around and plenty of Dolphin. The action is best in the Baltimore and Wilmington canyons.
Inshore the fishing was just as good today! Tautog on the south jetty, Bluefish north of the Rt 50 bridge and Flounder in the east channel, the south side of the south jetty and on the inshore wrecks for the party boats. Anglers are having great luck with the Tog on sand fleas and crabs, the Bluefish are eating just about anything that you throw at them, and the Flounder anglers are catching loads of keepers on live minnows and white Gulp.
Captain Luke Blume on the White Lightning out of Sunset Marina reported 8 nice Yellowfin tuna, 2 Dolphin and a White Marlin release from 50 fathoms in the Baltimore canyon.
Captain Joe Drosey on Rhonda’s Osprey out of Sunset Marina had a great day with 7 Yellowfin, 3 really nice gaffer Dolphin and a White Marlin release.
Captain Steve Selander and mate Chris Watkowski on the Spring Mix II out of the Ocean City Fishing Center had a stellar day today. Mark Levinski, Scott Corsairs, Ayrton Pryor and Calvin Jones had a nice Yellowfin, 2 nice Dolphin and a White Marlin release by Calvin Jones in the Baltimore canyon.
The Boss Hogg out of Sunset Marina reports two Yellowfin, 17 nice Dolphin and a released White Marlin.
Captain Rob Skillman on the Moore Bills out of the Ocean City Fishing Center reported 3 Yellowfin, 13 Dolphin and a White Marlin release.
Inshore, Captain John Prather on the Ocean City Guide Service continues his inshore fish mugging. Captain John reported some good Tautog action from the jetty, including a nice 17″ keeper, and 4 really nice keeper Flounder from the east channel on white Gulp baits. The two biggest were a pair of 23″, 5 pound flatties!!
The party boat Judith M out of Bahia Marina with Captain Don Hetherington had happy customers putting them on some Flounder and Sea Bass on the inshore wrecks. The Judith M has two 1/2 day trips every day.
Our good friend John Witmyer from Crabs to Go in West Ocean City reported, “A good day on da bay!” John hooked into a nice keeper Flounder in the bay behind Assateague Island and a really nice Bluefish just off of Harbor Island around 14th street.
