Ocean City Maryland Summer Fishing Update

We have been fishing steady out of Ocean City  the last week or so.  Weather has been strange, we had strong southerly winds for over a week keeping the bay waters a little bit off.  The best fishing has , as usual, been on periods of clean water.  Ocean water temps are still well below 70 on average, not typical for July.

We have still been catching  good numbers of  stripers early in the morning and in the evenings fishing jigs and lures. We have also been regularly catching some nice puppy drum up to about 23".

Flounder fishing in the back bays has picked up too.  We have had good catches of flounder just about anytime clean water and moderate tides coincide.  Our best lure for the flounder continue to be jigs tipped with Berkley Gulp. 


We mixed it up a bit and did some Tautog fishing this week too.   Caught some really nice fish on green crab baits.
