Sea Bass, Flounder and A 200 Pound Bigeye

Sea Bass, Flounder and A 200 Pound Bigeye

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.

Nice summer day. Pretty as you’d want, really. Light northerlies kept it cool without building anything beyond the least chop. Fish bit on and off all day.
I’ll take it.
Ryden gave our pyramids a push then used the reef builders mojo to pocket today’s pool money.
Everyone had plenty of dinner I think.
One trend seems noticeable of late. I have more clients suffering mal-de-mer (sickness of the sea) if I promise a calm – than if I bemoan a windier forecast.
Two calm days of late – numerous clients in sick bay while beautiful.
Three rough days? Everyone fished with two down temporarily.
Hmmm.. “I won’t need that medicine, it’ll be nice out” UhHu.. Best to take precautions no matter the forecast. Such cheap insurance.
Here are a couple of keeper flounder caught on board the Tortuga fishing out of Bahia Marina.
Captain Marc Spagnola of Dusk to Dawn Bowfishing had another great day and night in the south bay putting his shooters on cow nosed and southern ray action.
