Looking at the bay as I drove across the route 90 bridge this morning I realized it was just about as calm as I’ve ever seen it. It was so flat that ducks were actually leaving a visible wake and I could see the reflection of clouds in the water. It looked like a beautiful day to do some fishing. The wind did pick up out of the south a hair this afternoon, but it was sill very fishable. Tomorrow looks like another fishable day before some wind moves into the area early next week.
I dropped Fish in OC magazines off at Fenwick Tackle this morning and was told that Matt Shoup was out in the beautiful conditions trying his luck at some tautog. Just a little while later I got a picture from Matt that wasn’t of a tautog, but it was of a nice big sheepshead of just under 10 pounds that he caught while fishing the south jetty. Proof that there are still a few of them out there mixed in with the plentiful supply of tautog.
The Angler with Captain Chris Mizurak was out on the ocean taking advantage of every day that Mother Nature will allow and had a good day of fishing over ocean structure. Captain Chris reported that the sea bass bite was a little slower than they would have liked today, but there were some quality flounder that made up for it. There were even a couple of triggerfish and fat ling cod that came over the rail, and the biggest flounder weighed in at 6.5 pounds.
