For the 2nd day in a row the tuna fishing in Massey’s Canyon and the flounder fishing in the back bay were outstanding. I’ll get right to it.
Dave Reier and his crew had a fantastic day on the MARLI with Captain Mark Hoos and mate Mark Stephens. They boated 17 yellowfin tunas and we’re back at the dock in time for lunch.
Captain Jeremy Blunt on the Wrecker out of The Ocean City Fishing Center had a good day yesterday. Wrecker ended the day with three nice yellowfin tuna and a gaffer mahi.
Austin Ensor had his Primary Search out today and caught what would be his 52nd tuna of the season. That’s quite an accomplishment for a private boat owner with a full time job.
Captain Jeff Coats of Pitboss Fishing had the Bad Influence out in the ocean today. Wanting to avoid the crowd, he stayed clear of Massey’s Canyon and found 75 degree water and mahi at the 20 fathom fingers.
The party boat Morning Star with Captain Monty Hawkins had a good day out on the rip today. Morning star had two nice mahi, some sea bass, flounder, bluefish and spanish mackerel on today’s trip. They also did some bottom scoping with mate Wes Pollitt’s GoPro to see what was going on down there. I’ll link that video when they get it up.
The party boat Angler with Captain Chris Mizurak reported some good bottom fishing today on ocean structure. Angler had good sea bass action with a couple of nice flounder coming over the rail.
Captain John Prather on the inshore charter boat Ocean City Guide Service was all over the spanish mackerel again this morning at the bass grounds.
Captain Marc Spagnola on Dusk to Dawn Bowfishing was on the water again today putting shooters on a nice cow nosed sting ray and a nice 60 pound southern ray.
Bear at the Oceanic Pier sent in this photo of Marine Tom with a nice cow nosed sting ray that he caught off of the pier on a live minnow.
My wife Kristen and I got a chance to get out this afternoon and try the flounder fishing that was so good yesterday. Captain John Prather put us right on the spot and we used live minnows and Gulp 4″ swimming mullet to box five nice keepers between 16″ and 21″. Our custom Fish in OC rods by JPR Custom Rods were good luck and got the job done well for us.
