Bahia Marina’s 24 hour rockfish tournament Rocktoberfest ended yesterday and there were some decent fish caught despite the tough conditions. The wind blew pretty hard for the duration of the tournament, but 38 hearty anglers fished anyway and were rewarded with some action. Here are the winners from each category…..

I hadn’t received any messages from Bear down at the Oceanic Pier through the weekend because of the windy conditions, but thankfully that changed today. Don form Delaware posed for a photo with this nice puppy drum that he caught with the pier’s lively sand fleas.
Joey C and Dave Weller fished the surf in Ocean City today and had some luck with small rockfish on artificials. They also caught “one of them strange fish”, a stargazer, that actually ate an artificial as well.
