Today started a little rough in the ocean. A couple of boats even turned around and others didn’t even bother to untie the lines. The weather did layout if you were willing to wait for it and the white marlin bite in the canyons is showing signs of it’s September awesomeness. I didn’t get any specific reports, but word of mouth has it that some boats fishing in the Washington Canyon had a dozen plus bites and boats that ventured to the Norfolk saw upwards of 30 fish. The weather looks fishable for the remainder of the week so if you’re looking to catch some white marlin you need to get out there before they’re gone.
The ocean flounder fishing was good for the crew of the Morning Star with Captain Monty Hawkins today. Wes Pollitt reports that there was a good flounder bite on board with some nice fish and he even caught a limit himself.
The report from the bay was that the water coming in from the ocean during the incoming tide was pretty dirty. This morning it wasn’t too bad and if you were out there you may have had some luck. Bear from the Oceanic Pier submitted a photo of Mike from Silver Spring, MD who caught this nice 18″ keeper on the pier’s minnows this morning.
