Summer has shown it's true face in the last week here in Ocean City , MD. This week we had daytime temps in the 90's + each day. Spending the day on the water offered a bit of relief, but no doubt Summer is here to stay now with more hot weather forecast for the week to come.
Inshore fishing has offered much of the same over the last week or so. We have coninued to target rockfish on flies and light tackle during when conditions allow. Much of the action as you might imagine is at dawn or dusk. We have caught some rockfish in the heat of the day on a good tide drifting live spot. Most fish have been short of legal, but good fun. Many 18 to 26 inchers.
Good news is that the flounder bite has picked up in the back bays. We had several tides this week which brought in some really clean water. Clean water typically translates to good flounder fishing, and we had some good keeper fish on several trips this week. We had a couple of nice 20 + inch fish on live spot while drifting deep water, and also some decent fish while fishing jigs and Gulp grubs.
Somehow did not get many pics of our flounder this week. Did get some good help on the fish cleaning end of things. My daughter Ella always needs to be part of the action, and my friend Leslie from 94th st. had fun learning to fillet her first flounder.
