SATURDAY, July 20, 2019

Gonna be a hot one today.  Parking lots don't look as full as they normally would on a Saturday in late July.  Heat may have kept some folks at home plus offshore fishing is tough right now.

There are definitely cobia roaming the coast.  I have had reports of fish from down by Winter Quarter Shoal up to Indian River.  A couple of days ago, Ayrton Pryor and Jacob Lewis caught a 40 pounder around Little Gull Shoal.  Hooked it on a bucktail.

Bob Engler caught a 29-inch, 8 lb. 13 oz. flounder at the Old Grounds while using minnows for bait.

Anglers on the charter boat, "Get Sum" caught 3 flounder in the bay behind Assateague.  Largest was 18-inches.

Capt. Monty on the headboat, "Morning Star" reported very slow sea bass fishing today.  High hook had 9 fat ones.  Fish are showing up thick on the sounder, just not biting.  One angler did catch and release a 25-inch tog.

On the charter boat, "Katydid", anglers caught 24 keeper flounder in 65-feete of water on shiners and Gulp.

The scales closed on the 1st day of the Kid's Classic.  Saw a nice 4 white marlin release day come in off the "Gret's Three J's".  Also saw some good size mahi caught today in addition to the typical flounder, spot, king mackerel, a few yellowfins, etc.

Capt. Corey Kennington on the "Lucky Duck II" reported that his daughter Caroline caught and released her first blue marlin today and Regan Bunting released her first white marlin.  Tina Boykin also released a white marlin.  All in the Baltimore Canyon.



FRIDAY, July 19, 2019

11:34 AM - Capt. John Oughton on the charter boat, "That's Right" just reported that fishing is very slow today, all over.

Anglers on the charter boat, "Get Sum" this afternoon caught a lot of flounder, but they were all too small to keep.  They hooked at least 20 flatties in the Thorofare on white Gulp.

Kevin and Jeana Graybill caught Spanish mackerel and their limit of snapper bluefish while trolling spoons at Little Gull Shoal this morning.

Capt. Monty on the headboat, "Morning Star" said that they sat over several schools of black sea bass today but they just weren't biting on several of the spots, but luckily Capt. Monty found some locations where they were hungry.

Ashton and Kenny Schoen caught their limit of 8 flounder in the East Channel while fishing with live spot.

5:37 PM - Anglers caught some white marlin and dolphin in the Baltimore today and the "Buckshot" headed down to the Washington Canyon where they released a blue marlin.

Randy Chilcoat caught a 22-inch flounder this morning in the bay behind Castaways Campground (south bay).

Bill Cheek caught a pair of flounder on a chartreuse Gulp and minnow combination behind the Ocean City Airport.  Fish looked to be in the 18-19 inch range.

On the charter boat, "Spring Mix II", anglers released a white marlin and caught a 52 lb. yellowfins and 13 dolphin.  It was the first white marlin release for 17 year olf Gavin Gustan.

Anglers on the charter boat, "Lucky Break" caught 6 flounder and a snapper bluefish around the South Jetty on Z-Man artificial baits.



THURSDAY, July 18, 2019

It's a day a the dock for offshore boats, with windy offshore conditions.  I did see some trailers at the West OC launch, so I guess some folks are going to break the inlet.

We have seen pompano caught in the suds this season but we anglers are now catching them around the Rt. 50 Bridge.

2:22 PM - Anglers on the charter boat, "Get Sum" had 6 keeper flounder in the Thorofare this morning.  Fish up to 18.5 inches.  Caught on Gulp.

Andrea Ensor just caught an 18 1/2-inch flounder after throwing back 8 in the East Channel.  Mark Ensor has been skunked!


WEDNESDAY, July 17, 2019

With tuna fishing not very good right now, I'm sure there are boats down around the 800/800 today looking for marlin.  Stay tuned!

Keep an eye out for cobia along the coast.  I am hearing of more and more hooked every day. 

Also, a couple of nights ago there was a big school of Spanish mackerel working under a large ball of bunker.  Anglers were having a field day catching them and at least some of them must have worked their way into the inlet because we have had a few caught in the last couple of days.  A school of Spanish mackerel were also spotted outside the Indian River Inlet as well.

Preston and Debbie Walls took their grandson, Harrison out for a flounder fishing trip and they caught 8 keepers, up to 22-inches.  All on white Gulp during the morning incoming tide in the East Channel.

From the reports I've received, it was another slow day of tuna fishing with boats looking in the Baltimore.  Billfishing was slow also.  Boats that went down to the 800/800 didn't see many.  Sounds like high hook was a boat with 1 white and 1 blue marlin.  "That's Right" was on an overnighter and caught 1 white and 1 blue marlin last night deep outside the Baltimore.  Other boats were outside the Baltimore today, but I haven't heard much coming from there either.

"Rhonda's Osprey" had a white marlin release and a couple of dolphin around the 800/800.

"Marli" had 2 dolphin.

"Blue Eyes" had 2 dolphin, a white marlin release and a blue marlin release.  I think they were either at the 800/800 or deep outside the Baltimore.


TUESDAY, July 16, 2019

Brutally hot today!

Big Bird Cropper and Dave Hrycyk stopped by the office with 3 keeper flounder and 7 bluefish they caught around the Rt. 50 Bridge.  They had 3 keepers out of 22 hooked with the largest being 18 1/2-inches.  Bird also caught his very first Spanish mackerel.  The incoming tide was when the action improved as it brought with it cleaner water.

Anglers on the "Lucky Duck II" went 5 for 9 on white marlin and caught some small dolphin deep outside the Baltimore.

"Bar South" returned from an overnight trip with 7 white marlin releases and a pair of blue marlin releases.  They also had 2 yellowfins and a dolphin. Action was around the 800/800.

Anglers on the charter boat, "Fish Bound" had flounder up to 25-inches and 5.5 lbs.  The anglers ended up with 14 keepers during their 1/2 day trip.

Christopher Barrett caught a pair of flounder measuring 18 and 20-inches on white Gulp in the Thorofare.

Capt. Monty Hawkins on the headboat, "Morning Star" said that his anglers "picked a few, nicked a few, all morning", but the sea bass bite gradually got better and they had a nice catch.

Anglers on the charter boat, "Lucky Break" had a great day, ending up with 10 flounder caught in the bay behind Assateague Island near the Duck Blinds.

Anglers on the charter boat, "Katydid" hit the ocean and caught their 7 man limit of 28 flounder on squid, shiners and cut bait.  Fished in 80-feet of water.

MONDAY, July 15, 2019

Sounds like it was a slow day in the canyons for tuna fishing.

The charter boat, "OC Guide Service" had 10 flounder during their morning trip.  Largest was 21-inches.  Caught on flounder belly, Gulp and Z-Man artificial baits in the bay behind Assateague down by the duck blinds.

Charter boat, "Get Sum" had 5 keeper flounder, measuring up to 18 1/2-inches, while drifting white Gulp Swimming Mullets in the bay behind Assateague near the Duck Blinds.

Charter boat, "Marli" returned from the Baltimore Canyon with 5 yellowfins, totalling 179 lbs., after trolling in 100 fathoms.


SUNDAY, July 14, 2019

Anglers on the charter boat, "Lucky Break" had 3 keeper flounder between 19 and 21-inches in the OC Inlet.  Gulp & Z-Man.

On the charter boat, "Fish Bound", anglers caught a bunch of good size flounder on open ocean bottom.  Largest weighed 5 lbs. 12 oz.

On the headboat, "Morning Star", anglers had a good sea bass fishing day.

Anglers on the headboat, "Angler" had good sea bass fishing today with fish up to 3 lbs. 4 oz.  Caught on squid at a natural reef.

Chris Clasing, Scott Clasing and Mason McDonals fished the outgoing tide in the West Channel and ended up with 6 keeper flounder up to 19.5 inches.  All on live peanut bunker.

Rich Daiker and Kenny Schoen caught 6 flounder, up to 24-inches and 5 lbs. 12 oz.   They also caught 6 bluefish, up to 15 lbs. 9 oz.  All around the Rt. 50 Bridge and in the East Channel during the outgoing tide.

Anglers on the headboat, "JUdith M" caught sea bass up to 15-inches along with some triggerfish.  The knotheads were caught at the Bass Grounds.


SATURDAY, July 13, 2019

Today is Day 2 of the Ocean City Tuna Tournament and with a nice forecast there should be plenty of boats fishing today.  There are 109 entered in the tournament and 43 fished yesterday.

Anglers on the charter boat, "Get Sum" caught 5 keeper flounder on the East side of the Thorofare this morning.  All on Gulps.

Matt Crim on the "Longshot" reported releasing a swordfish this morning while dropping in the Baltimore Canyon.

Allison Cacchio caught a pair of flounder, measuring 18 and 21-inches, in the Thorofare.
