There wasn’t a ton of fishing going on today in Ocean City…probably because this weekend was busy and the forecast for the upcoming Memorial Day Holiday looks reely good right now.  Kids are still in school and we haven’t reached the meat of the summer yet so most angling pressure is on the weekends, but this weekend that should all change and if the weather shapes up like it’s looking right now it could be a pretty crazy, busy weekend.

I had some reports come in today from folks that took advantage of the good fishing from this past weekend and there were some nice fish in them.  Mark Handley and Yani Harris fished 100 fathoms in the Wilmington Canyon on Saturday and landed this bruiser of a 47″ bluefin on a trolled ballyhoo.

Tom Patania and the “Reel Slingers” had a great weekend of fishing mixing up on Saturday and Sunday.  Saturday the crew had a limit of sea bass and Sunday it was two “under” bluefins, a couple of skipjack tuna and two nice mahi.

Captain John Bunting on the Judith M found the sea bass again on Saturday of this weekend.  Captain John put his crew on about 150 sea bass with about 1/2 being keepers in the 14″ to 16″ range.  Pictured are Dan Day (York PA) Dominica Bavino (Troy NY) Troy Testo (Troy NY) John Godino (Newburgh NY) Adam Alitzer (Federalsburg, MD) Maryann Groff (Newburgh NY) Kyle Muse (Las Vegas NV) Sean Rowlands  (Tucson, AZ) and mate Max Thurma (Ocean City MD) with a pollock and a sea bass.

Last night Captain Marc Spagnola of Dusk to Dawn Bowfishing showed his shooters another good time.  Captain Marc once again had good shooting for some big gar and some tasty snakeheads.

You can tell from tonight’s feature image that it was reely, reely calm yesterday……today?  Not so much.  Sure, on land it was nice.  Breezy out of the northeast, but nice temperatures, sunny skies and no rain. … READ MORE
