It was another beautiful fall day today in and around Ocean City.  The wind was blowing a little more than yesterday, but it was still nice and there were plenty of anglers out on the water taking advantage of some great fall fishing.

My buddy Big Bird Cropper fished with Red Beard and Red Beard’s son Dan today on board the Lucky Break with Captain Jason Mumford and had a heck of a day.  Captain Jason put the guys on some flounder, tautog and these healthy sheepshead while fishing the Ocean City inlet.

Another Fish in OC inshore charter that was on the bay today was Captain John Prather of Ocean City Guide Service.  Captain John fished less than ideal water conditions, but still found these young lady anglers a couple of keeper flounder.

The Spring Mix II with Captain Chris Watkowski and mate Ayrton “The Kayak Kid” Pryor fished rough conditions off in the canyons today, but they did return with a box full of peanut mahi.

This Facebook post came in from Stephen Humphrey this afternoon with a great picture of Megan Humphrey who caught a nice, big sheepshead in the OC inlet today.  Megan used a green crab to box this 21″ sheep that weighed in at an even 8 pounds.

The Tortuga with Captain Drew Zerbe had some good action with the flounder today.  “Big Ron” took the fish pool again with a 2.4 pound flounder this morning, and there were four keepers and plenty of throwbacks to go around on this afternoon’s trip.

Bear down at the Oceanic Pier submitted this photo of Oscar from Roaring Spring, PA who caught a 19″ keeper flounder on a chartreuse Gulp and bucktail from the north sea wall on the inlet.

I received a Facebook message from Steve Smith who fished overnight in the Poor Man’s Canyon last night on the Redemption and had some good fishing.  Steve and crew released three blue sharks last night and today went 7 for 11 bites on longfin tuna.  Pretty work!

Don’t forget to make plans for our Ocean City Inshore Classic that we’re putting on with Hooked on OC.  It’s exactly two weeks away on October 14 and 15 and you can find out all about it here.   Ocean City Inshore Classic
