The weatherman got the forecast right today and it was absolutely picture perfect beautiful on the ocean and inshore on the bay. Winds were light, skies were sunny and temps were in the 70s. It felt more like late September than early August and I for one will take it.
It’s been tough to get a tuna to the boat after hook up over the past several weeks thanks to the sharks out in the canyons, but today the crew of the private boat Gypsy Danger got it done. Captain Lolo Gensler, Brian, James and Rober Smack, Ben Harding and Alex Kasathsko landed this beauty of a 200 pound bigeye and hung it up at the Ocean City Fishing Center.
Captain Chase Eberle of Chasin’ Tides had some good flounder fishing over ocean structure with a nice line up of fish and some big ones in the mix.
Lamont Hilbert fished Russell’s Reef and landed three keeper flounder and a nice triggerfish today on squid and Gulp.
Anglers fishing on board the Angler with Captain Chris Mizurak had some fussy sea bass, but there were some quality fish caught along with a few flounder.
Tom “Bluefish” Berry fished the route 50 bridge with live mullet and landed 7 keeper flounder last week with the largest being this 20″er.
Captain Monty Hawkins of the Morning Star had fish biting on and off all day which is just fine with him and his anglers.
