The weather has reely turned to crap now with rain, wind and some coastal flooding, but earlier in the day it was very nice. I had some other obligations to take care of today so I didn’t get to get on the crazy good flounder fishing at the route 50 bridge, but I did get some reports from my buddies that got to take advantage of it.
Captain Jason Mumford of Lucky Break Charters had clients out for some October flounder fishing and he put them on the fish in a big way. Captain Jason had over 60 throwbacks for his crew and was able to find four nice fish over 16 1/2″ for the cooler.
Curt Presnell saw last night’s Daily Angle and decided to give it a go this morning and he found the fishing just as good as I left it yesterday. Curt fished the last part of the incoming tide and the first part of the outgoing and put four nice keepers in the box along with a ton of throwbacks.
Big Bird Cropper took advantage of the weather this morning and got out on the water with his buddy Sean. The duo used Roy Rigs to catch and release over 30 rockfish and 15 undersized flounder.
Captain Monty Hawkins of the Morning Star was able to get in the ocean for some fishing today and reported good fishing with most anglers getting into double digit keepers with a few having limits. Cal Klausner of Arc VA had an 18.5″ sea bass to take the “sea bass only” pool. Morning Star had some pretty fluke too. The largest was Terry Burgess’ of York PA’s 23″ fish. Also pictured are Nick Carvounis – Chhaya Muth of Alexandria VA – Fedeze Marino of Selbyville, DE – Dave Konick of Rock Mills, VA – Bob Houser of Carlisle. PA – & Sam Klausner of Arc, VA.
Bob Haltmeier of the Oceanic Fishing Pier has been having some nice luck fishing the pier the last few days. Bob has had plenty of small bluefish, tautog and even one speckled trout.
