Tuna and Mahi in The Washington, Flounder and Tog in The Bay

By Scott Lenox

Tuna and Mahi in The Washington, Flounder and Tog in The Bay

We’ve had to put up with some pretty crappy weather over the past couple of weeks but the past few days have been really, really nice. Really nice because the weather itself has cooperated, and really, really nice because there are still fish around offshore and inshore.  Today’s weather was really nice, and today’s fishing was really good for October.

A report from Captain Mark Hoos on board the Marli out of Sunset Marina came in just a little while ago.

This group of anglers had a great day with a calm seas on the charter boat MARLI with Captain Mark Hoos and Mate Mark Stephens. They caught a limit of Mahi (60) and a pair of 80lb Yellowfin Tunas. The bite is on…


I also got a report from mate Steve Moore from the Moore Bills with Captain Rob Skillman out of the Ocean City Fishing Center.

Finally made it back out on the ocean after all that northeast wind and our charter was rewarded with some decent mahi fishing on spinning gear and a nice 67lb yellowfin on the chunk. Water is still 72 degrees out there and hopefully it will get better as the ocean settles down.


The first report that I had come in this evening was from my buddy Austin Ensor.  Austin is a little on the “crazy about fishing” side.  Austin headed to the deep late last night, fished all day, was back to the dock by 5:30 PM, was in his class at Salisbury University by 6:20 PM, took a test at 7:00 PM, is currently still sitting in class in his bloody boots…


will get out of class later this evening and promptly head back out to the deep at 11:00 PM for another trip tomorrow.  Oh, I almost forgot….Austin and his boys were six for nine on yellowfins with a couple of 70+ pounders.  I look forward to his report from tomorrow.

Inshore, Captain John Prather on Ocean City Guide Service was able to get back on the water again after waiting more than a week with the crappy weather.  Captain John reports a decent tog bite on the south jetty with smaller fish on green crabs.  OC Guide Service gave the flounder a try at the end of the trip and was rewarded with a decent pick in the east and west channels.  The trip took place at the end of the outgoing tide and the beginning of the incoming tide.


I was putting the Fish in OC Carolina Skiff back in the water today and the weather was nice.  Light winds, calm bay conditions and not too many boats on the water.  The bay water has cleaned up quite a bit and it’s getting to that temperature where we’ll see flounder, tog, bluefish and rockfish.  I hope all of the bad weather is behind us and we start to see more days like today.
