I’m not sure that the weather we’ve had recently qualifies as an actual “Indian Summer”, but it’s pretty darn close.  It was another beautiful day in Ocean City with light winds, sunny skies and very mild temperatures.  Tomorrow we may see highs in the upper 70s or low 80s….it’s getting hard to believe that it’s November.

Local anglers aren’t complaining one bit about the weather.  Except for the occasional blow day, we have had exceptional weather for fishing opportunities this fall.  The water in the back bays is still in the mid 60s and is still holding flounder, there are more tautog and rockfish moving into the bay all the time, and there are even a good number of speckled trout being caught.

We had a charter boat off in the deep today, but they were focused on the fish that live on the bottom.  The Jade II with Captain Ed Kauffman, Captain Dave Jacobs and Captain Jim Bunting had the crew of Lloyd Lewis, John Lewis, John Lewis Jr., Marvin Steen and Greg Steen out at the Rockpile for some bottom fishing and they slayed them.  The crew combined for a huge pile of sea bass and blue line tilefish.

Bear at the Oceanic Pier submitted a couple of photos and a report of some good fishing down at the pier today.  Anglers were out enjoying the beautiful conditions and having luck with puppy drum, bluefish, tautog and some speckled trout.  Marine Tom caught himself a nice puppy drum and a nice speckled trout on a jig head and Gulp combo from the pier this morning.
