I wouldn’t exactly call it warm today, but it was nice! Temps in the area of Ocean City climbed into the upper 50s and the wind was light so it felt pretty good and there were definitely some anglers out taking advantage of the conditions.
Captain Brian Behe of Buffalo Hunter Guide Service was in Wachapreague, VA for the second day in a row and as good as yesterdays three keeper flounder was, today was even better. Captain Brian had Charles, Charles, Joe and six-year old Tanner out for some flounder fishing and put four nice fish in the box. The crew also released several other fish in the 15-16.25″ range.
I got the following photo from Heather Layton reporting that Ray Layton caught this beauty of a 32″ black drum in the Virginia surf on a clam bait. There are some black drum being caught in the Assateague surf as well on sand fleas.
Captain Jeff Coats of Pitboss Fishing was joined by his wife Karen today for some fun with the schoolie rockfish. Captain Jeff and Karen made the long trip down to the Verrazano bridge from Ocean Pines, but were rewarded with some good fishing. Big Bird’s Roy Rig was used once again to release several fish up to 24″.
Blake Gunther of Salisbury, MD had a great day out in the ocean tog fishing. Matt Ellis put Blake and David “Croaker” Herbst on the tog with a combo of green, Asian, hermit and blue crabs.
There have been some reports of bluefish being caught in the surf and at the Oceanic Pier if you’re on the right tide. John Lutz reported through the Ocean City Maryland Fishing Community Facebook page that he had some luck with some nice bluefish while fishing the beach.
