Due to the unseasonably cold winter the inshore water temperature has taken it’s sweet time getting to the 50 or so degrees that the summer flounder like before they move into the back bays of our barrier islands….but it seems as if it’s finally gotten comfortable enough for some flounder to start the pilgrimage.
I had a good friend head to Wachapreague, VA this weekend and he was lucky enough to land a couple of flatties. Not by any means setting the world on fire, but it’s a great sign and more fish will be moving inshore to the back bays all the time.
The Wachapreague season usually starts about 1-2 weeks before we see fish in Ocean City, but with reports of flounder in the Indian River Inlet in Delaware, and these flounder caught in Virginia….we should see flounder caught in Ocean City in the next week or so….maybe sooner.
