It was windy today son!  Sold some goods at the Island Watersports nautical flea market this morning and it was hard to keep things on the table it was so windy….and heading home over the route 90 bridge I could see a straight three foot chop in the bay.  Hopefully it doesn’t churn the water up too much because there are still some keeper flounder around.  That won’t be the case for long as nighttime temps are starting to dip into the 30’s and that’s going to cool water temps down quick.  Water temp was 65 degrees at the route 50 bridge the other day and flounder will usually stick around until its in the mid to low 50s so if you’re looking for some flatties for the fridge don’t wait to go.

Yesterday Captain Donny Post was fishing with Finley Stearn near Harbor Island when Finley landed a nice 21″ flounder.   The fish ate a live minnow on the out going tide.

Captain Drew Zerbe is almost done for the season, but he’s not out yet.  Captain Drew had this nice pool winning fish on yesterday afternoon’s trip.

There is still some really good bottom fishing on ocean structure for sea bass and flounder too.  The boys on the Ocean City Girl had a great day yesterday putting a 6 man limit of sea bass, 14 keeper flounder and 26 bluefish in the boat.

Its a great time of year to do some evening fishing for bass and other freshwater species with the cool nighttime temperatures.  Ryan and I got to hit the local pond this evening and nabbed a couple of bass before we headed home to watch the Redskins beat the Cowboys. 🙂
