It was a pretty dreary day again today in Ocean City. There was a heavy fog/light mist for most of the morning, but that had cleared off by late morning and anglers were back out on the bay and at the Oceanic Pier bending a rod. The ocean was too rough again today for any toggers to get out, but no rain this afternoon meant there were some out trying for these bluefish.
Trophy rockfish season is in full swing over on the Chesapeake Bay and Captain Mark Hoos and mate Mark Stephens of the charter boat Marli have been on the fish really good the past few days. These two young rockfish slayers from Lusby, MD caught two beautiful fish with the largest being a 45″+ slob.
The big story in the fishing scene right now is still the big bluefish that are being caught all over the Ocean City area. Nick Ager caught two slobs yesterday and his post prompted some others to post their bluefish pics as well.
Brian Birch caught this 37″ beauty in the bay behind Assateague Island on a lure yesterday.
Anita Chandler caught this nice 29 1/2″ blue from the surf in Fenwick on a #3 floater hook baited with cut mullet.
The Oceanic Pier in downtown Ocean City has been a hot spot for the big bluefish for a little while now. Bear sent in a couple of photos today of some nice fish that were caught this morning after the heavy mist let up.
Ayrton “The Kayak Kid” Pryor of Spring Mix II was at it again up north. Ayrton found some blues again on top water plugs and boxed one 10.5 pound fish and released another about the same size.
