- a mythical marine flat fish related to the summer flounder (paralichthys dentatus), but much, much larger.
November 26, 2017 – Captain Monty Hawkins of the Morning Star totally made it up.
Today marked the final day of the MD tautog season for the 2017 season so anyone fishing out of MD and catching tautog must release them. The good news is that the sea bass fishing in the ocean is really good and anglers are still catching triggerfish and flounder as well. Captain Monty Hawkins of the Morning Star sent me a text this afternoon of yesterday’s action which showed some good action with sea bass and at least one nice flounder. After yesterday’s big 10 pound 15 ounce fish from the Angler, Captain Monty wondered if anyone would be targeting “flukasaurus” while they are sea bassing and I would have to think so. Over the past few years I’ve seen some quality flounder and several of them have come in the months of October and November. I’ll certainly let you know here if I see any of the elusive “flukasaurus” over the coming weeks.
I received this photo from Chris Shamblin of the Ocean City Fishing Community of Tonia Mccaig of Hampstead, Md with her first trout. The nice speck was caught on the route 50 bridge on a zman Streak Z pink tandem rig, with a 1 oz zman striper eye and 1/4 oz trout eye.
