WAHOOOO!  One Drop….Two Big Flounder!

The flounder fishing at the near shore wrecks and reefs off of Ocean City has been nothing short of awesome on some days in the past few weeks.  The bay flounder fishing has slowed to a few throwbacks and a few keepers so if you can get to a near shore wreck or reef, that’s the way to go if you’re flounder fishing.  Not to say that it’s a waste of time to fish in the bay for flounder, it’s just WAY more productive in the ocean.  You are going to have some luck with 4″ Gulp swimming mullet and strip baits if you hit the ocean, and your best bet for a keeper in the bay is going to be live bait like mullet, bunker or spot.

I got a great report from Captain Monty Hawkins saying that the Morning Star was back to the dock two hours early today with a boat limit of flounder.  He also had Bud Bricker of York, PA with a magnificent double header.  One drop for Bud lead to this double header….one fish was 4 pounds, and the other was 5.5 pounds!  That’s pretty rare and pretty sweet!

Captain John Prather on Ocean City Guide Service had a great day on an inshore wreck today as well.  Captain John used strip baits to put one crew on some real nice keepers,

Offshore, Captain Dave Black fishing on My Cin out of Sunset Marina had a great day fishing the canyons today.  Captain Dave put this lucky crew on a couple of mahi, a white marlin release and a REAL nice 68 pound wahoo.
