Bad Weather Good Bassin’

By Scott Lenox

Bad Weather Good Bassin’

It was a pretty crappy day today with intermittent rain that has turned into a downpour as I write this report out.  The wind wasn’t bad so anyone that wanted to dodge raindrops could still give it a shot.

Today marks the first day of closed season for tautog in Maryland so thankfully sea bass season is open for ocean bottom fishermen.  The MD tautog season will reopen on July 1 with a creel limit of 2 fish per person.

Captain Chris Mizurak of the party boat Angler reported better fishing today than they saw yesterday.  Although Captain Chris had to try a few spots he did end up putting his anglers on a really good catch of sea bass up to 3.5 pounds.

There have been a few keeper rockfish being caught in the surf recently which is a good sign for beach fishermen.  David Moore caught this beauty of a 45″ rockfish over the weekend on cut bunker from the dirt on Assateague Island.  David fished late and hooked the fish at around 2 am.
