Ocean City Bay and Inshore Fishing Update

This week we have seen some great fishing in the Assawoman and Sinepuxent Bays.  Clean water and great weather conditions have sparked the flounder bite in the bays.  The flounder fishing has been great in many locations using a variety of techniques.  There has been a decent striper bite on the jetties also, especially in the late evenings and early mornings on good tides.  Live bait has been a good bet when targeting the stripers, but lures and flies have taken fish too in recent trips.  The wreck fishing continues to be pretty good with some nice tautog and sea bass showing up regularly.

I hope to get some more photos posted soon and keep you up to date on the fishing.

Ocean City Bay and Inshore Fishing Update

The summer season is in now in full swing on the Maryland coast and we have been busy fishing in the coastal bays and inshore waters  out of Ocean City , MD.  The wind has had a way of blowing an awful lot all Spring and has continued blowing on into the early summer pretty regularly.  We have had to take full advantage of the days we get when we have had good water conditions and manageable winds.  Off colorwater has been an issuein the coastal bays all week , making the flounder fishing tough to say the least.  Though we had some good success last week cacthing some nice flounders, this week we spent most of the time fishing on near shore wrecks and reef sites for tautog and sea bass.

The tautog bite has been great, and we caught some good ones this week up to 10 lbs, and the fishing was steady. We used sand fleas and crabs for bait, fished onconventional rods rigged with 50 lb braid.  The fishing was good Tuesday and Thursday, and I hope we will see some more good fishing this week.
