December Doormat

By Scott Lenox

December Doormat

After a pretty miserable day yesterday, we had calmer seas and no precipitation today so anglers were able to get out on the local party boats and boats fished another day of their five for the Ocean City Marlin Club’s 4th Annual Rockfish Tournament.  There were no fish weighed today and I don’t think too many were caught.  There are still a good number of  fish north of the Indian River inlet and off the coast of New Jersey, but none of the 11 boats fishing the tournament today found anything to hit the scale.  The forecast is pretty crappy for the next couple of days so we’ll have to wait and see if anything changes on the leaderboard by Sunday.  The standings are still the same after 6 days of fishing.


Bad Oyster

33.0 Pounds     45.0″ length     23.5″ girth


Fish Frenzi

25.4 pounds     37.5″ length     23.0″ girth



22.4 pounds     36.0″ length     22.0″ girth



Bad Oyster

11.8 pounds


Captain Chris Mizurak on board the Angler reported in saying they had some good fishing today.  They did head for the barn early because of strengthening wind and building seas, but were able to put a couple of limits of sea bass in the boat before that.  There were also some nice bluefish caught on board and Ken Yuen jigged up a beautiful December doormat of a flounder that weighed 6 pounds 10 ounces.  That’s a big flounder any time of year and a really nice surprise in December.  All of the fish were caught on jigs.
