It was N. A. S. T. Y. nasty today! Rain most of the day, strong winds and chilly temperatures made just being outside a bummer. Right about the time I was standing in a driving rain replacing the dead battery in the Fish in OC Carolina Skiff so she didn’t sink this afternoon and looking out to the whitecaps on the bay thinking, “nobody is fishing in this crap today”……I got my first Facebook submission with a fish pic. It made me realize that there are some die-hard anglers out there that can’t chose their days so they go when they can….and catch fish!
The way its been so windy and rainy the past week or so I’m surprised that the water in the bay isn’t way too dirty for flounder. The water has stayed surprisingly clean with the conditions and there are still plenty of flounder being caught. Chris Tilghman of Ocean City was out in the tough conditions today and was able to box some flounder once again. Chris was lucky enough to land a 17″ keeper and our buddy Mike Tuel had the hot rod catching 18″ and 21” keepers.
Shaun Lloyd fished the 3rd street bulkhead today where he landed these two big bluefish.
Nikki Uli fished the route 50 bridge in the sub par conditions today and caught a nice stringer of snapper sized bluefish.
Jordan Helsel made the trip down to Ocean City today from Pennsylvania to see if the bluefish were biting on the Oceanic Pier and found out that they are when he caught several snapper sized fish.
Paul Hazzard submitted this photo of the Cape Henlopen pier from yesterday saying that the “blues were at the pier all day, everywhere on anything.”
