We had a decent weather day in Ocean City today after what I would call torrential rain yesterday. It started out foggy this morning, but by late morning it had burned off. There was a light breeze inshore, but there was a swell with some white on top of it in the ocean which made for a sporty start to the day.
Austin Ensor and his crew of Salisbury firemen couldn’t make it down the beach to the Norfolk Canyon today due to the nasty fog and an unfriendly 8′ head sea so they settled for the Washington Canyon instead. The crew of Mike Copeland, Aaron Colegrove, Jimmer Gardiner and Austin caught two nice mahi and also did some deep dropping and caught some nice sea bass and some blue line tilefish.
Captain Chris Mizurak on the Angler reported a slightly better sea bass bite today with some fish up to 3 pounds. The fish were caught on ocean structure with jigs and clam.
Bear at the Oceanic Pier reports some more good bluefishing from the route 50 bridge, the north sea wall and the pier. Anatoli Georgiev caught this nice 32″ bluefish on a gotcha plug and weighed it at the pier this morning.
