Flounder in the Box

By Scott Lenox

Flounder in the Box

The weather today was a liiiiiiitle bit better.  Temps got up into the 50s locally, but with a steady breeze it was still a sweatshirt/jacket kind of day.  There are more and more fish showing up all the time in the back bays and sooner or later the weather is going to break and then it will be on!

Captain Brian Behe of Buffalo Hunter Guide Service is running regular trips to the eastern shore of Virginia over the next few weeks…today it was flounder fishing in one of my favorite spots in Wachapreague, VA.  Captain Brian had Rusty Daub and his Ocean Pines crew on board today and had a great time and put some flounder in the box.  Captain Brian reported cool, but clean water and used Sea Hawk minnows and Gulp swimming mullet to release several fish and put three nice keeper fish in the cooler.  The keepers were all caught on Gulp baits.  The crew caught fish on both tides, but the outgoing seemed to produce a few more fish.

Captain Jeff Coats of Pitboss Fishing was out on the bay today with John, Mike and their dad and had a good time with the rockfish at the route 90 bridge.  Captain Jeff and crew used Big Bird’s Roy Rig to release some healthy rock and have a good time this afternoon.

JJ Tozzi of the Oceanic Pier reports that the pier is open for business and there are some fish being caught.  There are some hickory shad showing up mixed in with small rockfish and the occasional bluefish.  Most of the action is taking place at the end of the pier during the outgoing tide.

Captain Monty Hawkins of the Morning Star was out in the ocean today, but he wasn’t doing any fishing.  He was however doing some work for fishing.  Captain Monty and volunteers Will, Marsha, Craig, Rachel, Donny, Patrick, & Courtney unloaded about 5 tons of concrete tog condos at Wolf & Daughters reef 2.5 miles from Ocean City inlet.  Big thanks to Captain Monty, the Ocean City Reef Foundation and the volunteers for doing this awesome work!
