Man we got lucky with tropical storm Colin today! He went by the coast of Ocean City far enough offshore that we had sunny conditions all day, but close enough that the ocean was closed for fishing. It was a bit breezy on the beach today, but offshore was down right nasty as Colin made his way by. Late this afternoon, the outside edge of Colin passed by close enough that there was some wicked cloud action and some very short-lived thunderstorm activity, but overall I think we were lucky.
On days like today when the ocean party and charter boat fishing is not happening due to the weather, a great option can be an inshore charter boat. Even though it was a little breezy the Fish in OC inshore charter partners were able to get out on the water and take advantage of the great fishing that we can have in the back bays of Ocean City.
Captain John Prather on Ocean City Guide Service had two trips today that were very productive. Captain John started this morning with some casting at the route 50 bridge where he put his anglers on some hickory shad, short rockfish and bluefish. This afternoon it was a trip to the jetty where he put his party on lots of throwback tautog, short rockfish and bluefish. A couple of small, snapper bluefish was all that came home, but both parties had an awesome time with lots of action.
Another inshore charter partner, Pitboss Fishing had a busy weekend with anglers fishing the back bay as well. Captain Jeff Coats had awesome snapper bluefish action on the Bad Influence on Roy Rigs and spec rigs on three different trips this weekend. Captain Jeff also caught a great shot of the beautiful sunset we had this evening after the crazy cloud cover cleared.
