Yesterday we had another sure sign that spring has sprung and that the fishing season is upon us with the opening of the Oceanic Pier in downtown Ocean City. Opening day did not disappoint for anglers that decided to take advantage of the decent weather as several anglers were rewarded with small school sized rockfish caught on bloodworms.
The Oceanic Pier is located on the corner of Ocean City inlet and Isle of Wight bay so it is a terrific location to intercept every species of fish that enters Ocean City’s back bays as they enter the inlet. Early season it is a hot spot for stripers, shad, bluefish and tautog, and when summer arrives it’s flounder, croaker, blowfish, trout and stripers. In the fall it’s back to bluefish, shad and tautog. Right now the pier is holding daytime hours from about 9AM to 5PM, but in season they will be open 24 hours a day so anglers can fish anytime they’d like. The Oceanic Pier has all the tackle and bait you need for fishing and they even rent rods if you need them. No need to worry about a fishing license either……the Oceanic Pier has got you taken care of there as well. Your fishing license requirement is covered by the pier and included in the price of your access ticket.
Fishing is picking up all the time. It’s time to get out on the water.
