It’s a nasty day today in OC….nasty!  The wind is blowing something fierce, we’ve had intermittent showers all day and it poured cats and dogs earlier this morning.  The wind is supposed to blow through Monday now as well, so it doesn’t look like we’ll have the offshore fishing that we had last weekend unfortunately.

I posted last night that our new friend Felipe caught the biggest bluefish so far this season and after a couple of Facebook submissions that came my way today I have been informed that is not the case.  Felipe caught himself a huge bluefish at the Oceanic Pier and was the largest reported to me as of last night, but there have been some bigger fish caught.

Aaron Swartz submitted this photo of a bluefish that was 41″ long and weighed in at 17 pounds.


Alex Neiss caught this HUGE bluefish in the Cape Henlopen surf back on April 21 on a top water bait.  This 38″ blue weighed in at a whopping 18 pounds 8 ounces and is the largest bluefish that I’ve heard of out of Delaware, Ocean City and surrounding.


Surf fishing for bluefish, rockfish and drum is pretty good if you catch the right tide and use the right bait.  Brian Conaway submitted this photo of Elisabeth Heflin who caught this beauty of a rockfish from the Assateague surf.  The 30″ keeper ate a bunker baited hi-lo rig right in front of the OSV entrance gate on Assateague Island.
