We had an absolutely beautiful Father’s Day today with sunny skies, light winds and warm temperatures. It was a great day to get Dad out on the water and do a little fishing.
Captain Chris Watkowski and mate Chase Porter had some MD DNR folks out today and they had a great time putting five yellowfin tuna in the fish box.
Big Bird Cropper and Shaun Flaherty had a great time at the route 50 bridge catching and releasing a bunch of small rockfish and boxing up some big bluefish on Roy Rigs.
Luke Wrye caught his first ever keeper rockfish at the route 50 bridge today when this 29″er took his bait.
Afternoon in the breeze, outgoing tide and a chop on the bay, Dave Neumayer was able to treat these fellas (all of them from Adams County, PA) Sean Boose, Chet McCormick, Kevin Wolff and Nate Hartlaub to some flounder. All caught at Harbor Island on live spot. 22”, 18”, and 2-16 3/4″.
Maurizio Lenzi caught and released the first cobia that I’ve seen so far this year when this 31″ fish ate a piece of fresh bunker in the surf on 120th street yesterday. The fish was released since it was under the 40″ minimum size. Many thanks to Larry Budd of Coastal Fisherman for the photo and report!
Captain Chris Mizurak of the Angler saw a mixed bag on today’s trip with some flounder limits for some anglers. The biggest flounder went just over 5 pounds.
Captain Monty Hawkins of the Morning Star saw some good fishing for sea bass on a beautiful ocean today.
Nice weather this Sunday, especially considering today’s forecast earlier in the week was NE wind and rain – came sunny and calm instead. I’ll take it.Fish hear about it? Yeah No. Great Mercy. Mark fish – catch one. Mark FISH – catch a double keeper and a fluke. Top secret spot? Catch one. Like that all day. Oyyyy… A couple folks had the luck – Letty especially. She caught 5 beauties – while several men nearby boxed a goose egg. I’ll never understand it all.. First offshore bottlenose I’ve seen in a good while. Playful. Tomorrow we celebrate Pete’s passion for the sea.. Cheers, Monty
