Man it was beautiful today!!  Light winds, warm temperatures and sunny skies all day had anglers on the beach, in the back bays and even offshore in the canyons.

My buddy Eric Mihaly had the Bet Sea out today and had a great day offshore.  Eric, Dave Nornes and Rob Kohut ventured 86 miles out to 1000 fathoms between the Washington and Norfolk canyons and boxed five yellowfin tuna and one stud of a bull mahi that weighed in at 22 pounds.  You can tell by the photo that it was slick calm off there.  Way to go guys!!

The inshore action was pretty stellar today as well for rockfish and some bluefish.  Captain Jeff Coats of Pitboss Fishing had some fly casters come down from Annapolis, MD today and he put them on the fish.  After a helpful hint from Big Bird Cropper, Captain Jeff fished the south jetty, down the beach off of Assateague and just north of the fishing pier in the ocean and put the kaibosh on the school sized rockfish.  The father and two son party caught just two bluefish, but caught over 70 small rockfish sometimes having three on at a time.

I got a Facebook submission from the Cayman Man with some nice shots of fish that his crew has caught recently.  Minh landed a nice 18″ flounder near the route 50 bridge and Mike caught a 19.5″ flounder near the route 90 bridge and then a big old 37″ bluefish in the Thorofare.

JC Barbely caught this 32″ keeper rockfish behind Assategue Island.


The bluefish bite may have slowed just a bit at the Oceanic Pier in downtown Ocean City, but there are still some fish being caught.  Bear and Oceanic Pier webmaster Bob Haltmeier got some shots of blues that are still coming over the rail.  Bob even took a nice cleaning table selfie.

Nick Denny emailed this photo of young Donny Post who has been tearing the bluefish up this spring.
