It was another nice day in the ocean today and though it wasn’t a busy day in the ocean, some more boats headed offshore to the canyons to get back into a rhythm. Some of the ocean going party boat fleet was back on the rip again as well to check if the flounder and sea bass are still hanging tight to the wrecks and reefs.
Captain Joe Drosey on Rhonda’s Osprey fishing out of Sunset Marina had an epic day of billfishing today. Captain Joe trolled the Poor Man’s Canyon today and put his crew on 16 white marlin releases, a spearfish release and a blue marlin release. He also added 29 mahi to the box to round out an outstanding day on the ocean.
Captain Jeremy Blunt on board the Wrecker out of the Ocean City Fishing Center was back to the Washington Canyon today and had an awesome day as well. Captain Jeremy had is anglers on two blue marlin releases, five white marlin releases and a handful of mahi.
September billfishing can be some of the best of the entire year and right now it’s looking pretty darn good. If you’re looking to get in on the action, don’t wait, it could be over before you know it.
Captain Mark Hoos and mate Mark Stephens had a good day of tuna fishing today. Marli ended the day with a white marlin release, six yellowfin tuna and eight mahi.
Captain Chris Mizurak on the ocean going party boat Angler out of the Talbot Street Pier was back at it again today after almost a week off. Captain Chris reported some flounder and sea bass from ocean structure on strip baits and clam and said, “it was better than I thought it would be.”
The flounder fishing in the back bay is improving daily as the water cleans up after Hermine muddied it up pretty good. Bear at the Oceanic Pier in downtown Ocean City submitted this photo of Joe from Fairfax, VA who caught this nice 16″ keeper flounder on the pier’s fat minnows.
