Ocean City bay/Inshore fishing report

Having fun fishing out of Ocean City, MD the last few weeks. We have been having good fun fly fishing catching lots of rockfish around the bridges and jetties. Most of the fly rod action has been very early in the morning or late in the evening.  Lots of schoolie size fish around and a few big ones.  Catching some bluefish and shad in the mix too.

Spending some of the mid day wreck fishing and fishing for flounders and we have had good success with them too.  Fishing has been pretty good overall, and hoping it stays so as temps heat up for the Summer.

Chesapeake Bay Fishing Report, Tangier Sound Speckled Trout, Redfish

I moved the boat down to Crisfield, MD last week to fish the surrounding areas for speckled trout and redfish. Last year in June we had exceptional fly fishing for large speckled trout and slot sized redfish in the shallows.  We also had good shallow water fly fishing for keeper sized rockfish.  This year has not proved to be as productive.

I fished the area all of last week and this weekend with several groups of capable anglers.  We caught mostly small rockfish and bluefish up to 2 or 3 lbs.  The speckled trout and redfish have not shown their faces, short of reports from local fisherman catching some at night on bait.  I am hoping we will see some trout and puppy drum move in later this month and will keep you posted.  Until then I will be fishing out of Ocean City where we have had some larger rockfish, bluefish, and some really nice flounder.  A few good weakfish have also been caught this week.    

Ocean City Bay, inshore fishing report

I brought the boat down to the coast this week and fished a few trips in Ocean City , MD.  The inshore fishing was good for stripers, bluefish, and flounder.  We had some great striper fishing around the jetties while fishing light tackle with a variety of lures.  Most of the fish we caught were in the 25 to 28 inch range, making for some fun fishing.  There are a lot of 2 to 4 lb bluefish around the jetties too, and through the back bays. 

Flounders were taking in clean water on both tides too and we had some nice fish up to 4 lbs.  We caught most of the flounder on 1/2 ounce jigs.  We had a ton of short flounder too. Hoping for some more good fishing from OC throughout the Summer.
