More Nice Tuna and A Stud Flounder in the Mist

It was a pretty crappy day today as far as sunshine was concerned, but the wind barely blew a puff so anglers were out braving the foggy mist to get in on some of this good fishing that is going on.  The wind looks to pick up tonight into tomorrow so that may change over the next day or so, but the forecast right now for later in the week looks pretty good.

Tuna fishing off of the beach continues to impress as offshore anglers are having great luck not only catching their limit of “under” bluefins, but also several nice yellowfin tuna and the occasional bigeye.  Today was more of the same for bluefin in and around the Baltimore Canyon and for yellowfin in the Wilmington.  The Boss Hogg out of Sunset Marina with Captain Brian Porter has been having some awesome fishing this weekend putting several yellowfin tuna in the boat on all trips.

The Talkin’ Trash with Captain Chris Little found the fish again today and laid a bunch of tuna salad across the dock at the Ocean City Fishing Center.

Captain Scott Stapleford and the crew of the All In out of Bahia Marina had an “insane” day of tuna fishing today when they put 3 yellowfin tuna and 3 bluefin tuna in the box and released another 16 bluefin tuna to fight another day.

Captain Mark Hoos of the MARLI stacked and packed the box with another great day of tuna fishing with mates Michael Butler and Chase Neiderer.

Captain Chris Watkowski of the Spring Mix II and their anglers had an awesome day with the tunas as well today.  Captain Chris put his crew on three “under” bluefins and a 55 pound yellowfin and also released another 17 bluefins.

The ocean going party boats had some awesome sea conditions to take advantage of.  Captain Chris Mizurak of the Angler reported flat calm seas and good sea bass fishing with fish up to 2 1/2″ pounds.

Tom Patania fished his Mrs. L II today at the Jackspot reef and even though it was foggy he managed a nice catch of sea bass for the freezer.

Flounder fishing in the back bays has been pretty good the past few days despite the rain.  Captain John Prather of Ocean City Guide Service knows where to find the fish and today he did it again.  This morning it was five beautiful fish from the south bay and this afternoon it was a couple more keepers with a stud caught by young Clayton Christy of Texas.  Clayton’s big flattie was 24″ long and weighed in at a nice 4.9 pounds.

Bear down at the Oceanic Pier in downtown Ocean City saw at least one keeper flounder today too when Michele from Littlestown, PA landed this 16 1/2″ keeper on a 5″ Gulp swimming mullet.

Shooters on Dusk to Dawn Bowfishing with Captain Marc Spagnola have had some good shooting despite the foggy, dreary conditions.  Captain Marc knows where to find the rays and these shooters had good luck landing some nice cow nosed and southerns.
