It’s still raining where I am, but Dave Messick of Hooked on OC told me that it was beautiful in Ocean City and that the ladies were lined up deep at Bahia Marina signing up for the Poor Girl’s Open. Tomorrow is the first day of fishing and according to Dave we may be looking at a record number of boats and a large purse….I’ll have more info on it tomorrow as I start our coverage. You can get nightly updates from the scales right here tomorrow, Friday and Saturday.
My man Big Bird Cropper sent a text this evening with some photos showing that he and a guest had a good day of fishing today. Bird used the World Famous Roy Rig to catch some short rockfish, flounder and some big “chopper” bluefish around the route 50 bridge.
Captain Monty Hawkins of the Morning Star reported a good day on the rip today with a nice sea bass bite.
Cbass bit fine today. Not a November bite, but plenty OK for the heart of August.
