The Season Isn’t Over Yet

We had another good weather day today and boats were able to get out to the canyons to try their luck with the tuna and mahi that have been hanging around.  We’ve been having some good late season offshore action when the weather cooperates, and today was no exception.  The yellowfin and mahi are still in the Washington and anglers are still having good luck on the troll and on the chunk.

The Wrecker with Captain Jeremy Blunt out of the Ocean City Fishing Center had a great late season trip today out in the canyons.  Captain Jeremy and mate Brian Behe put their crew on eight tunas and 26 mahi to help their customers put some meat in the freezer.

My favorite fishing college student Austin “Bloody Boots” Ensor had a good day offshore today as well.  Austin joined Josh Ensor and Aaron Colegrove on his Matetrix II and fished the Washington Canyon going four for six on yellowfin tuna.  The fish were caught both chunking and trolling.  Austin also reported having tuna hooked all day long so it left no time to bail any mahi.  Materix II also lost an estimated 100 pound yellowfin after it pulled off of the dart gaff next to the boat.

They also released one bird.

On the inshore front, my buddy Nick Denny has been having some great luck fishing the route 50 bridge lately.  Nick started with 15 bluefish this morning during the high tide just south of the route 50 bridge on spec rigs and Gulp.  This afternoon the flounder bite picked up on the north side of the bridge.  Nick caught 12 throwbacks and one nice 20″ keeper on buck tails tipped with Gulp.  He reported seeing several keeper size tautog being pulled over the rail by people fishing from the route 50 bridge this afternoon as well.  Nick is fishing the route 50 bridge again this evening and having luck with bluefish and a couple of small stripers in the 18-24″ range.
