The flounder fishing in Ocean City continues to pick up as the water temperature rises into the 50’s and low 60’s on a more consistent basis. Anglers are having decent luck at the Rt 90 bridge and in the north end of the Thorofare.
This time of year flounder are looking for the warmest water which can be found in shallower depths between 3′-8′. Don’t be too concerned about fishing the tide like you would be in the summer….as long as the water is clean the fish will bite.
Spring flounder fishing baits that work best are going to be live minnows, shiners and Gulp swimming mullets. If you’re going to snaz up your rig white and pink are your best bets.
If you want to give the black drum on Assateague a try, you’ll have your best luck on sand fleas, clam or peeler crabs on a top and bottom or fish finder rig.
