Yep….it was another beautiful day…..HOT, but beautiful! The rest of the week looks even better as the temperatures and humidity are forecast to get in line before a cold front pushes some wind into the area for the weekend. Enjoy the next couple of days though, you’ll see me on the water!
Offshore fishing was good again today as warm water has pushed into the canyons. Captain Brian Porter and the crew of the Boss Hogg had a great day today putting nine really nice yellowfin tuna in the box.
The crew of Spring Mix II with Captain Chris Watkwoski and mates Ayrton “The Kayak Kid” Pryor and Jacob Lewis had a great day of trolling outside the Washington Canyon releasing three white marlin and boxing one tuna and 11 mahi.
Captain Joe Drosey of Rhonda’s Osprey had some good winders on board today that did a great job putting some meat in the box. The crew combined forces for two yellowfin tuna and a bunch of nice mahi.
Yesterday Captain Howard Todd and crew of the Bottoms Up had a good day in the canyon going three for four on yellowfin tuna and also had eight mahi.
My buddies Juan and Lucas Franzetti, Mike and Colby Snedaker and Chuck Sharp had a combo spearfishing / fishing trip to an ocean wreck today where they smooshed the flounder. The guys speared some and reeled others for a table full of beautiful flatties. I don’t have any lengths or weights because these guys just “cut them up and eat them.” Pretty work fellas!
Captain Chase Eberle of Chasin’ Tides Charters had a wreck fishing trip today that produced some really good fish. Captain Chase put Jim Lillie and his group on 25 kingfish, six triggerfish and a beauty of an eight pound spadefish.
Captain Jeff Coats of Pitboss Fishing has been dialing in the inshore shark fishing and today he had two groups reeling away. This morning Corey Suker, his dad and his brother-in-law were all over the sharks and this afternoon Shel Dail, his son Ryan, Sarah Shieflett, Maria and Janette Rallis had a great time catching and releasing. All in all Bad Influence saw 21 Atlantic sharpnose and sandbar sharks released.
Captain Monty Hawins of the Morning Star saw some beautiful sea conditions today and he also saw some nice sea bass and a big keeper tautog.
Ocean City Guide Service with Captain John Prather had a busy day today with a couple of trips. This morning it was some inshore shark action with a bonus keeper tautog and this afternoon it was a couple of nice keeper flounder from the bay.
Trace Schreble from Reading, PA, Aaron Andrews from Westminster, MD, Christy Morgan from Elko, NV and Samuel Sugzdinis from Limrick, PA had a great afternoon trip on board the Tortuga with Captain Drew Zerbe and mates Matt Harris and Nathan McGinnis. Christy won the pool with an 18″, 2 lb. 5 oz. The fish were caught near Harbor Island and in the Thorofare on Shiner/minnow and squid on the incoming tide.
The Bay Bee out of the Ocean City Fishing Center had a good day of floundering today as well. Bay Bee put six keeper flounder in the cooler on this afternoon’s trip.
