This forecast is tough! The Baltimore to Hatteras Canyon forecast out to 100 nautical miles for tomorrow isn’t too bad….E 5-15 knots becoming E to NE 10-20 knots, seas 3-5 feet….that’s fishable. The Baltimore to Hatteras Canyon forecast from 150 nautical miles to 250 nautical miles offshore for tomorrow is S winds increasing to 20-30 knots, then becoming N to NW 25-35 knots, seas 4-7 feet…that’s way different. It’s all going to depend on how close tropical depression #8 decides to track toward the coast. Only time will tell. Thankfully today sea conditions were nice. It was just a ground swell with no wind on top so conditions were actually very good. We’ll see what the rest of the week brings. With the Labor Day weekend holiday approaching lots of us will have our fingers crossed that the weather cooperates for us.
Captain Joe Drosey on Rhonda’s Osprey out of Sunset Marina had a nice day offshore today. Captain Joe put his crew on two white marlin releases and 10 nice mahi.
The Wrecker with Captain Jeremy Blunt out of the Ocean City Fishing Center had five yellowfin tuna trolling offshore today. Wrecker had two 40 pounders and three BLTs….Barely Legal Tunas.
Captain Monty Hawkins on the Morning Star out of the Ocean City Fishing Center had a good day of flounder fishing today. Captain Monty had some limits of four fish per person and some had nice fish upwards of 23 inches.
