Time To Go

Time To Go

If you haven’t figured it out by now yesterday’s report of Captain John Prather from Ocean City Guide Service breaking the world record for summer flounder was a big, fat April Fool!!  If you knew something was up from the beginning….good on you.  If you’re like my sister and my buddy Todd Martinek and I got you pretty good…..well Happy April Fool…..and if you’re one of the several people that just blindly shared the post and might still think it’s true…..well, you probably don’t read the Daily Angle anyway so you’ll never know. 🙂

We had a pretty nice day in Ocean City today….it was a little cold on the water, but with sunny skies and temperatures in the mid 50s some folks decided to deal with the light winds and give it a shot.  Weather and fishing are getting to the point that lots of boats are going in the water and today I joined the list.  The Fish in OC Carolina Skiff is in the water and ready to try for the first flounder in the next week…..it is time to go!


The rockfish are still snapping pretty good at the route 90 bridge and around the marshes to the north.  Ayrton “The Kayak Kid” Pryor was at it again yesterday with his buddies Charlie Brinker and Noah Hudson and the trio had another good day with the stripers.  The boys used jig heads and swim shads around the marshes in the north bay and wrangled up and released 26 rockfish.

I got a submission from Finn McCabe who has been fishing Ayres Creek in Berlin pretty regularly for the past few weeks.  Today Finn had his friend Adam Candeloro and Adam’s son Gus on the creek and showed them some carp catching action.  You can tell by Gus’s smile how cool it was to catch.


It was a bit windy for Nick Denny to be on the bay in his kayak today so he decided to try his luck at Ayres creek and at some of the local freshwater ponds.  Nick caught some nice carp at Ayres next to Finn and the boys and added some largemouth bass at his local freshwater spot.  When you get the fishing itch most anything will scratch it.

Fishing in the Pocomoke River is improving as the water temperature rises.  The Pocomoke is a great spot to fish from land or from a boat and catch species like crappie, largemouth bass, bluegill, catfish and pickerel.  Ella and Reef Kukel were fishing the Pocomoke with the family over the weekend and had a great time catching some of the freshwater fish that the river offers.  It’s always cool to see kid’s having fun catching some fish…..remember, little anglers turn into big anglers!
