I traveled across the route 50 bridge more than once today and every time I was wishing I was flounder fishing. I hadn’t gotten any reports yet, but the water coming in from the ocean was crystal clear and the bay was nice and flat. When I did finally start getting reports, I wished even more that I had been fishing.
Captain John Prather of Ocean City Guide Service has been on a tear recently with the good flounder fishing conditions. Captain John added to his carnage today when he put his anglers on eleven keeper flounder caught on Gulp and Zman baits.
Lucky Break Charters with Captain Jason Mumford has been tearing up in the back bay too and today was no different. Captain Jason put his afternoon and evening anglers on several keeper flounder.
Captain Drew Zerbe of the Tortuga has been having great luck with the flounder as well lately and today he also continued his streak. This morning and this afternoon anglers had keepers up to as big as 19 1/2″.
Bear down at the Oceanic Pier sent in two photos of Anatoli Georgiev who was fishing the north sea wall when he landed keeper flounder of 17″ and 18 1/2″.
There have been several pompano caught in the surf in the past few days which is a rare occurrence for Ocean City. The Foote family has been catching a bunch of kingfish lately and yesterday Uncle Wayne landed a pompano and this morning Jill Foote landed another.
Captain Chase Eberle of Chasin’ Tides Charters reported in on two trips today that produced small rockfish, triggerfish and BIG shark releases.
Captain Chris Mizurak of the Angler had a mixed bag aboard today with anglers catching sea bass, flounder and even red hake.
Brian Brannan and family had a great time flounder fishing over the 4th of July Holiday. One last trip produced a 19 1/2″ keeper for Brian and 9 year old Matthew just missed a keeper with a 16″ fish.
Captain Marc Spagnola of Dusk to Dawn Bowfishing was back out after yesterday’s deluge and was able to find some clean water and put his shooters on some good ray hunting.
