The rockfishing in the back bays of Ocean City is picking up just about every day as the water temperatures cool to where the fish like it. Water temps are still hovering in the mid 60’s so the fishing has been better over the past few weeks. The rockfishing will really get going when the water temperature gets down into the mid 50’s consistently. Right now anglers are having luck at the route 50 bridge casting buck tails and plugs, and at the route 90 bridge trolling plugs like bombers and Rapala lures.
Here young Grayson Woolridge holds his 23rd rockfish of the 2015 fall season that he caught with his dad John while trolling plugs in the north bay by Ocean Pines. All fish were released.
