The inshore fishing in Ocean City is jumping into full gear here as the water temperature rises and more and more fish move into our back bays.
Flounder are probably the most sought after of the inshore species in Ocean City and that fishing is really good right now. Anglers are having good luck in the Thorofare and the bay behind Assateague Island, but the best spot seems to be from the Rt 50 bridge to the inlet. Live minnows, shiners and Gulp baits in pink and white are the best baits currently, but as bigger fish move into the bay, larger Gulp baits like the 6″ swimming mullet will come in handy.
There are also still a bunch of bluefish and rockfish in the inlet as well. Bucktails, Gotcha plugs, Roy Rigs and other large swim baits are the best baits for the larger bluefish and rock, where as spec rigs are your best bet for the schoolies.
Captain John Prather is running trips daily and catching all of these species on both 2 hour and 4 hour trips. You can find out about the Ocean City Guide Service right here http://fishinoc.com/inshore/ocguideservice/
