One of the things that I’m going to try to do for this fishing report is to include photos whenever I can. The Fish in OC fleet has been awesome this season submitting photos of what they are catching so anyone that’s reading the Daily Angle can see first hand what’s being caught. I hope that you like that aspect of it. I mention it tonight….because there are a bunch of pictures, and if you’d like to be considered for The Daily Angle email a short report with name, info and pic to [email protected]
Let’s start inshore. Captain Monty Hawkins on the Morning Star out of the Ocean City Fishing Center had a great submission today. Here’s Bob Grice of Salisbury with a legal cod – Austin Axe of Mt. Joy, PA – followed by Tony & Anthony Watson of Pittsville & Hebron respectively. The cod was caught right in with the flounder.
Captain John Prather is pretty darn good at getting bow fisherman an opportunity to shoot some rays, and today was a perfect example of it. Captain John put these bow fishermen on four nice size rays and they took care of the rest.
Captain Prather isn’t too bad at the inshore fishing either…understatement! His other trip concluded with these junior anglers having a keeper flounder and a PILE of croaker.
The flounder fishing is also picking up downtown at the Oceanic Pier. There are lots of throwbacks to be had, but there are some keepers in the mix as well.
Offshore the story of today was the white marlin fishing. There is usually a really good run of white marlin in September in Ocean City that rivals the best white marlin bites in the world. It is ramping up for a run again, and the offshore fleet is having some luck.
Captain Joe Drosey on board Rhonda’s Osprey out of Sunset Marina had another great day today releasing three white marlin and boxing some mahi for his party.
The Spring Mix II with Captain Chris Watkowski and Mate Ayrton Pryor found a couple of white marlin today as well. Captain Chris put his crew on two whites in the Poor Man’s Canyon.
You know the old saying….a picture says a thousand words.
