Some Nice Big Bluefish Around

Some Nice Big Bluefish Around

Check out the Daily Catch at Sunset Marina!

We had a very nice day in and around Ocean City today with sunny skies and warm temperatures.  The wind did kick up inshore out of the south, but it was still a great day to get out on the water.

I had my “little” brother Jimmy and my nephews “Little” Jimmy and William in town today for a little fishing and we had a great time.  We hit the Thorofare for a little bit where I was lucky enough to trick this fat 20″ flounder off the bottom with a chartreuse Deadly Tackle Deadly Double.  Great time with the fam!

There are still some nice, big bluefish around and I got a couple of reports of some fish over 30″ today again.  Luke Wrye was fishing the route 50 bridge where he landed his personal best bluefish of 33″ today.

Fenwick Tackle up in Fenwick Is, DE checked in this big 33.5″ bluefish caught in the surf on a live eel.

Captain Chris Mizurak of the Angler reported a slow start today, but things picked up nicely by this afternoon.

Captain Monty Hawkins of the Morning Star had some good fishing on board today despite the confused seas.

Shewww.. Getting so I appreciate calm days. Found about an hour of that come midday. Nothing seemed to enjoy mother nature’s not-so-gentle reminder of yesterday’s southerly breeze. Though NW winds helped knock those seas down in the morning – they themselves were plenty unpleasant as well.
Sea bass seemed numerous on screens.
Sea bass seemed all but absent on clients’ lines until the wind shifted SE and the current rolled around from NE..
In those conditions they bit marginally well
..and then the blame things quit again!
Scoundrels. Most everyone scratched a good fish fry out of it. Bill from WV took today’s pool..
Nate & Michale’s reef block drop will, I am 100% certain, better our reef production (if only slightly! Lots of “Slightly” adds up mighty fine in time. 100% certain of that too.)
Ahh Well, beaten and thrashed in southerly swells, I hope cbass bite better tomorrow!
There was a very bright spot, however, (& far beyond “slightly”) where CCA MD and MARI finished a deployment of 450 reef pyramids and a good deal more reef material at Jane’s Island Reef in Chesapeake Bay where oysters will soon flourish. Not an OCRF project – wrong body of water!- but I imagine the whole reef could be named for a ten year period for $25,000.00 through the MD Artificial Reef Initiative (MARI.) Believe this – It’s going to be a great reef!
Cheers All!
Captain Marc Spagnola of Dusk to Dawn Bowfishing saw more good shooting for cow nosed and southern rays in the back bay.
