Opening day of sea bass for Maryland was a pretty good weather day. The wind blew a little this morning and picked up worse in the afternoon, but it was still fishable and anglers were able to get the day in.
The All In fishing out of Bahia Marina with Captain Scott Stapleford had one heck of an opening day of sea bass fishing. Christian Smith reported in that the crew caught a limit of 105 sea bass by noon and were headed back to the dock. The biggest fish was about 3 1/2 pounds with several other fish in that class. That’s a great start to the season for All In.
Captain Chris Mizurak on the Angler didn’t report the hot bite that All In had, but they did have some fish come over the rail with some quality knotheads ending up in the cooler. Ken Yuen won the fish pool with a nice 13.5 pound tautog. Angler sets sail again tomorrow for another go at it at 7:30 AM.
There are some nice bluefish being caught around the south jetty, the route 50 bridge and the Oceanic Pier the past couple of days and they are being caught with a little more frequency. Captain Jeff Coats of Pitboss Fishing was at the south jetty today where he had some nice fish come in the boat.
Bear from the Oceanic Pier had a citation bluefish come into the shop that was 34″ long caught by Chris from Salisbury.
Oceanic Pier webmaster Bob Haltmeir finally got a chance to do some fishing from the pier today where he landed this nice bluefish while casting.
