Ocean City Maryland, Fishing Update, Flounder, Stripers, and Bluefish

Been fishing in Ocean City , MD the last couple of weeks.  We have had good fly fishing as is typical in the Spring down here.  We have been catching a bunch of bluefish on the fly up to 7 lbs. throughout the back bays.  Yesterday we caught several dozen rockfish on  the fly on the jetties and around the inlet up to 26". 

The 8 weight rods have been getting good use paired with deep sinking lines, our best flies have been olive and tan half and half styles in 3/0 . The water has been beautiful and as long as the wind has let us fish we have been catching.  A bunch of hickory shad are around too, and they have been eager to take the same flies. 

 Flounder fishing has also been heating up in the bays.  After fishing flies on the best tides we are often chasing around the flatties.  we have been catching some good ones on jigs and gulp baits in Assawoman and Sinepuxent bays.  Clean water is always the ticket when fishing flounder.  we should continue to see great flounder fishing all Summer.  New size limits this year are 16" and 4 per day.
