Wreckin’ the Flounder, Chunkin’ the Tuna

By Scott Lenox

Wreckin’ the Flounder, Chunkin’ the Tuna

We’re starting to see some more flounder being caught around the reefs and wrecks off of Ocean City and there are a bunch of flounder in the back bays.  There are a lot of throwbacks to weed through in the bay, but the keeper ratio is usually much higher on the ocean structure.  The chunking bite was a little bit better in Massey’s Canyon today, but it was also a little rougher than days past.  Overall it was a good day to bend a rod.

The Morning Star with Captain Monty Hawkins out of the Ocean City Fishing Center has been having some good luck with flounder recently.  Morning Star has also had at least one mahi and some sea bass come over the rail too.  George Henning shows his doormat 7 pound flounder caught with Captain Monty and mates Wes Pollitt and Dan Iacangelo.

Captain Chris Mizurak on the party boat Angler out of Talbot Street has been having good luck with the wreck and reef flounder fishing as well.  Captain Chris saw some nice fish come over the rail today for happy anglers.

The tuna fishing at Massey’s Canyon was a little bit better today than it was yesterday for some boats.  Captain Luke Blume on the charter boat C Boys out of Sunset Marina had a good day yesterday and again today.  Captain Luke and mate Jon Henry put their crew on seven nice yellowfins and a mahi chunking at Massey’s.


Captain Joe Drosey on the charter boat Rhonda’s Osprey out of Sunset Marina caught two yellowfin tuna on the chunk at Massey’s today.


The crew on the Playin’ Catch with Captain Bob Borys Sr and mate Bob Borys Jr had a decent day today. They started at Massey’s drifting and when nothing was happening there Captain Bob Borys Sr decided on a hunch to head way inside to the twin wrecks and troll for dolphin. The crew ended up with one 71 pound, 51″ bluefin and had two other bluefin hooked up that didn’t stay tight. The crew was first time angler David Stouffer and his dad Tim.


Pitboss Fishing with Captain Jeff Coats had some inshore flounder action today.  The crew on the Bad Influence had lots of throwback flounder action in the back bay on jig heads tipped with Gulp 4″ swimming mullet.

I received a bunch of photos from Captain Marc Spagnola of Dusk to Dawn Bowfishing today.  Captain Marc has been putting shooters on hound fish, southern rays and cow nosed rays both day and night in the back bays of Ocean City.
