It was another cruddy day today in and around Ocean City. Cool, windy, overcast conditions turned into a chilly rain this evening, and tomorrow looks to bring more of the same. Next week’s forecast looks to warm up considerably with temperatures in the 80s and that can mean calmer winds as well. If so, I’m heading out to the water again because I’ve got flounder to catch.
Before the blow started my good friend Dale Timmons fished the Virgina surf with some of his good friends and had some really nice conditions and some really good fishing. Dale emailed the following report……
Scott Bruning, of Caruso’s Pizza in Ocean City, caught and released his personal best red drum, this 52-incher, on Monday, May 8 while fishing the surf of a Virginia barrier island. The big red took a peeler crab, clam combination bait.
Jimmy Jarman, of Berlin, MD, caught this 45-inch striper on a peeler crab bait while surf fishing a Virginia barrier island on May 8, 2017.
Jimmy Jarman also nailed an impressive 47-inch black drum while fishing the Virginia surf earlier this week.
The lone report to come in from today’s fishing was a Facebook submission from Brian Brannan who braved the elements to do some fishing in the bay. Brian caught this 30″ bluefish in the channel off of Harbour Island this afternoon.
