We had a little bit of a breeze today, but it was still really nice! Warm temperatures are starting to be the norm now and sunny skies look to dominate our forecast over the next several days. As the nighttime lows stay in the 40s and 50s the inshore water temperatures will continue to rise and that means more and more inshore action for rockfish, shad, bluefish, tautog and flounder. Captain Brian Behe had three keeper flounder in Wachapreague, VA with David Wells and the boys yesterday and now flounder fishing in Ocean City is picking up nicely too.
Captain John Prather of the Ocean City Guide Service was charter fishing today and was fortunate enough to run two trips on the bay. This morning it was several throwback flounder and three nice keepers to 21″ while trolling minnows in the Thorofare. This afternoon it was nonstop action for small rockfish and hickory shad while casting spec rigs in the inlet.
Flounder fishing is also picking up at the Oceanic Pier in downtown Ocean City as the water temps warm up. They are catching alot of small stripers on spec rigs during the outgoing tide at the pier and now there are some more keeper flounder coming over the rail. JJ Tozzi of the Oceanic Pier sent these photos of Mike Marks and “Mac & Cheese” with some flounder that they caught at the pier today.
