We had one last beautiful day today before the cold comes blowing in tonight into tomorrow….and when I say blowing in I mean it literally. As I write this there is a stiff north west wind at 20+ and gusts to 30+, and the temperature is dropping by the hour. Tomorrow’s inshore forecast is for west and northwest winds to blow at more than 25 knots and gust to more than 35 knots and it’s supposed to blow pretty good through Tuesday night. The cold air is coming with it too. Tomorrow’s high is 49 degrees and nighttime lows are supposed to be in the 30s for the next several days. This cold snap should put an end to the flounder fishing over the next week or so, but the cooler water temps should help the rockfish and tautog fishing. Today was a great day to enjoy the unseasonable temperatures one last day.
Captain John Prather on Ocean City Guide Service had two of his charter types on display today as he was blasting this morning and casting this afternoon. Captain John had his gunning charter this morning on some good shooting with a limit of sea ducks by 8:30 am. This afternoon he had his fishing charter on some good flounder fishing with a keeper and some good throwback action. The flounder were caught in the east channel on the outgoing tide with green Gulp baits.
Three of our inshore charters are sea duck hunting this season. Captain John on Ocean City Guide Service, Captain Jeff Coats of Pitboss Fishing and Captain Marc Spagnola of Dusk to Dawn Fishing. If you’d like to get in on some good shooting you can find them in here under Inshore Charters. Inshore Charters
Big Bird Cropper of the Ocean City Maryland Fishing Community was the early “bird” this morning and he definitely got the worm. Here is Bird with a couple of nice pics of rockfish caught on his world famous “Roy Rig”.
Bear down at the Oceanic Pier said anglers were out enjoying the nice weather today and tautog fishing was good on the pier today. Rob from Dover caught a 17″ keeper and this nice 19″ keeper tog from the Pier this morning on the pier’s lively sand fleas.
I got the below picture submitted from Don Grafer who caught this HUGE four pound porgy on a trip he took aboard the Morning Star with Captain Monty Hawkins last week.
