Party Boat Limits

Now that the Maryland sea bass season is open again the local party boat fleet is back in full time action when the weather  cooperates.  There are still a couple of flounder on the local reefs and wrecks, there are a few tautog being caught and a couple of triggerfish.  The big story for the party boat fleet is the terrific sea bass fishing that is going on to start the season.  Most every angler is catching some sea bass and many anglers are catching 15 fish limits.  That’s great news for a fleet of boats that depend on catching fish in a short window before they head for deeper water.

I got a report from Wes Pollitt of the Morning Star with Captain Monty Hawkins reporting good sea bass fishing with several limits of fish around the rail and this bruiser of a knot head that wasn’t weighed, but Wes called “an honest 4 pounder”.

Captain Chris Mizurak on the party boat Angler reports really good sea bass fishing as well.  Captain Chris also had several limits of sea bass and a couple of nice trigger fish on board.

Captain Victor Bunting on the party boat Ocean Princess has had a terrific opening to the sea bass season.  Captain Victor reports limits of sea bass and a couple of flounder and triggers.

The fall inshore fishing has been really nice this October as well.  Bear at the Oceanic Pier submitted some photos of the good fishing downtown at the pier.  Anglers are having luck with keeper sized tautog and flounder and he’s even seen a couple of speckled trout show up.
