June 20 2016 Report

Monday, June 20, 2016

Ocean City Inlet water temp. 73 degrees, Delaware buoy 70 degrees.

The water is warming up and the flounder are finally starting to show up in the back bays. There was a decent flounder bite from the airport back to Castaway's campground on Gulp and minnow combinations. The ocean wrecks and reefs are producing decent catches of flounder and sea bass. The bluefish action has been very good for anglers casting lures from the Route 50 bridge. Also, there are lots of shad and small stripers around the bridge. We did hear about a few keeper size stripers caught under the lights on swim shads. Oyster Bay Tackle's Travis Baker snagged a 18" Tog on a Gotcha plug while fishing for blues from the bridge. Travis and Justin have been catching some big sharks from the Ocean City beach at night. Surfcasters are catching kingfish, bluefish and lots of skates and sharks.

Capt. Jeff from Helbent Charters reports

"We finally may be getting a break in the weather that we have been waiting for all season. This past week we had good weather on the weekends but windy and stormy mid-week. Tuesday we fished the incoming tide and were ended up with 4 Flounder including a nice fat 18" 2.5 lbs. On the way back up the bay just south of the Rt. 90 bridge we came across a pod of about 50 Dolphins playing all around us. In my 17 years on the bay I have never seen so many Dolphins in one spot! We watched for over half an hour and with two seven year twins on board it was a perfect way to end the day. Saturday was a perfect day for the air show and the wind laid down as predicted. We managed to pick up 8 Flounder at various locations from the airport, commercial harbor and yes in the middle of all the anchored boats watching the air show up around Harbor Island. The catch was about a 50/50 split between white Gulp and live minnows. On Sunday I decided to fish the morning tail end of the incoming hoping to find cleaner water than Saturday. We tried to fish up near the camp grounds but there just not much current and we just could not get a good drift going. We moved back out to the Commercial Harbor but we still could not find much current so we didn't get a bite anywhere we tried. We did move back up by the airport when we finally got some current moving but still no fish! Once the air show got started we fished all behind Harbor Island and unlike yesterday we just could not find a bite no matter how hard we tried. The water conditions on the out going tide was very dirty and I am sure the very heavy boat traffic did not help. I will be fishing everyday this week but Monday so I hope the water cleans up and with less boat traffic the fishing turns back on this week. Give me a call and book a trip at 717-574-4010 or email me at [email protected] Don't forget to check my website and Facebook page at Helbentcharters See you on the water."

Sea Bass Bite Still OK(ish) A Sign Of Flounder National Reef Conference

Sailing Daily For June Sea Bass Weather Permitting - Saturday's 6:30 to 3:30 - $125.00 – Otherwise 7 to 3 at $110.00.. Saving Sundays In July For Research - For Now..

Opening July! Now taking flounder/sea bass reservations for July. Honestly - If you book July there's no way to know whether fluke or sea bass will bite better on any day. I absolutely couldn't guess; but I do know my crew and I will be trying our best to make everyday a success.

Reservations Required at 410 520 2076 - LEAVE YOUR BEST POSSIBLE CONTACT NUMBER - Weather Cancelations Are Common - I Make Every Attempt To Let Clients Sleep In If The Weather's Not Going Our Way..

Be a half hour early! We always leave early! ..except when someone shows up right on time. Clients arriving late will see the west end of an east bound boat. With a limited number of reserved spots, I do not refund because you over-slept or had a flat..

Dramamine Is Cheap Insurance! (Meclizine's Better!) Crystalized Ginger Works Great Too. It's Simple To Prevent Motion Sickness, Difficult To Cure. If You Suffer Mal-de-Mer In A Car You Should Experiment On Shorter Half-Day Trips First! (Wockenfuss Candies sells crystalized ginger locally - We usually have some aboard - Better is Nuts.Com.. Chewable Meclizine is a good pharmaceutical, there's also a "less drowsy" meclizine pill that a lot of clients like; Scopolamine Patches are the gold standard.)

Honestly - If you get to go on the ocean once month, once a year, or even less; why risk chumming all day? Similarly, if you howl at the moon all night, chances are good you'll howl into a bucket all day.

Bring A Cooler With Ice For Your Fish – A 48 Quart Is Fine For A Few People. No Galley! BYO Sandwiches and Soft Drinks. A few beers in cans is fine. (bottles break at bad times)

If You Won't Measure and Count Your Fish, The State Will Provide A Man With A Gun To Do It For You. We Measure and Count — ALWAYS — No Exceptions!

Support the Ocean City Reef Foundation! http://www.ocreefs.org (lots of reef pics here..) We're Nowhere Near Reef Building's True Potential. Thank You!

Greetings All, "Catching sea bass, if tapered somewhat from early on, continues. High man is usually in double digits. Low man usually missed my warning about mal-de-mer medications. Had a big party on Saturday who missed the part about "if you howl at the moon, you'll howl into a bucket".. Nine guys down for the count.. History's primary admonishment is that we fail to learn from history. Promise one thing, a wicked hangover & rough seas make for a brutal lesson.

Sea bass aside, we're starting to see an occasional flounder. Even had some guy get lucky and knock out a limit in a short while. That was just once. Most days, however, we ARE NOT seeing any flounder. Given the forecast for the coming weekend, it may be some while before things settle our favor for flatfish pursuits.

I'm see an amazing turn of spawning age; of small sea bass switching to male at even 7.5 inches. They almost all start as female - only some switch to male to meet the needs of each reef's spawning population. I have not seen a 7.5 inch male in forever. We used to see hundreds every day.. While some curse commercial effort, recreational overfishing, and even climate change for our poor sea bassing these many years, I have been trying to convince managers of a delay in sea bass spawning related to size limit for almost 9 years now."

Anglers will be able to purchase the license online or come to Oyster Bay Tackle to purchase one. Please bring cash to buy your fishing license in our store. If you go online, Logon if you have ever had a MD fishing or hunting license in the past or Enroll if you never had.

If you know you are coming to Ocean City,and you want to get it done ahead of time you can also call a toll free number (1-855-855-3906) or print and mail in an application.

Boat Licenses: $50 and everyone on your boat can go fishing without a license. You will get a personal license along with your boat license, so you can go shore fishing as well. Mail the application to their main office: Maryland Dept. of Natural resources Annapolis Service Center P.O. Box 1869 1804 West Street, Suite 300 Annapolis, MD 21401

Capt. Jeff from Hellbent Charters reports: "They call the Chicago the "Windy City" but if you were in Ocean City you might think you were in Chicago! We can not catch a brake this year. The offshore Tuna Bite is real hot for those brave enough to venture offshore this past week but inshore Flounder bite continues to slow when we can get out on the waters behind and near OC. I fished Tuesday and found fairly clean but very cold water from the lower 60's in the inlet up to mid 70's in my canal up north. We fish all over the bay from the west channel, east channel and mid channel plus the airport and inlet. We caught one short Flounder on a live minnow just north of Harbor Island in about 6 feet of water. We also thru lead heads with soft plastics at the Rt. 50 bridge and came up empty. On Saturday we were greeted with steady south wind around 15 which made it our drift with the wind faster than I like and with a very dirty out going tide we again struggled trying to find a bite. The water temp at the tail end of high tide was 68 which was better but all the windy days the water was just to dirty. I ran up to the duck blinds but but we found, you guessed it, dirty water! When we came back to the inlet just after slack tide were we found the most beautiful clean green water that I have seen all year. The temp of that clean water was only 62 degrees but you could see at least 4 to 5 feet down which means maybe the fish could actually see the bait. After drifting the inlet and the south of Rt. 50 the south wind just could not slow the drift down enough to find a bite. I made one last move up to Harbor Island were the clean had worked it's way that far we finally got a few bites and then the youngest member in the charter hooked into a real door mat coming in at 21 inches and weighting in at almost 4 lbs! This was one of the heaviest fish for it size I have seen. That was a great way to end the day. When the wind finally lays down I think the Flounder bite is really going to turn on. Do not get left on the dock and book a trip today by calling me at717-564-4010 or email at helbentcharters @hotmail.com. See you on the water." Capt. Jeff

Charter boat, "That's Right" had 9 yellowfins and 2 mahi from 100 fathoms outside the Crotch.

I did hear that the striper bite at the South Jetty last night and this morning was nothing like it has been. Very slow.

Short tautog were caught around the South Jetty and along the rocks in the West Channel by Martha's Landing (big houses south of the entrance to the OC Fishing Center).

5:04 PM - Anthony Roselli drifted the flats, north of the Thorofare and caught a pair of keeper flounder that measured 17 and 18-inches. He also had 2 throwbacks and battled 4 skates.

Friday, June 10, 2016

I would imagine there will be quite a few boats heading to the Washington Canyon today after the great day the "Marli" had yesterday (23 yft & 8 mahi)

9:13 AM - Capt. John Oughton on the charter boat, "That's Right" reported that there is great fishing this morning between the Washington and Norfolk Canyons. All bites are on trolled ballyhoo. No bites on plastic.

9:33 AM - Capt. John Oughton on the charter boat, "That's Right" reported that they are finished and heading home. The got their limit of nice yellowfins and some gaffer mahi. Great day!

Thursday, June 9, 2016

11:54 PM - I'm sure the seas aren't too pretty today, but a few boats ventured offshore. I just received a report that the charter boat, "Marli" already has 11 yellowfins in the box. Stay tuned for updates!

3:34 PM - Good news! I am starting to see more flounder pictures come in from anglers fishing on ocean structure. The "Judy V" had a few caught by anglers fishing at "A" Buoy, so I would think that any structure on that line running north and south should be holding them also.

3:53 PM - Charter boat, "Marli" had 8 mahi and 23 yellowfins in the Washington Canyon.

9:02 PM - The "Marli" did have 8 nice mahi and 23 yellowfins from 600 fathoms in the Washington Canyon. All on ballyhoo and spreader bars. Temperature break was gradual, going from 69 to 75-degrees.

There was another action packed night at the South Jetty for anglers just looking to bend a rod. Rocks are loaded with short stripers. A rare keeper is caught, but the action is fun!

Chuck Wenzel and Pete Renzi reported a striper on every cast at the South Jetty. They fished from 7:00 PM to 8:00 PM. Tossing lures.

Wednesday, June 8, 2016

12:05 PM - Issue #6 of the Coastal Fisherman is on the street. Congrat's to the "Jade II" for their winning mako on the cover.

Seas are rough again today, keeping the offshore boats at the dock.

2:58 PM - I received a report from Budd Heim today. Budd and Kevin Welkner fished the South Jetty the last 2 days and caught 35 striped bass and a couple of bluefish that measured 32 and 36-inches. Their largest stripers measured 28, 33 and 38-inches. Budd is a Flounder Pounder and reported that his last 8 trips produced no fish. That tells you something about how flounder fishing is right now.

Tuesday, June 7, 2016

4:53 PM - Seas were rough today with the effect of the Tropical Storm far off the coast.

There was a great striper bite around the South Jetty this morning. A lot of fish! Many throwbacks with a few keepers mixed in. Anglers were catching them on every cast.

There were also some stripers and a few bluefish caught around the Rt. 50 Bridge this morning.

5:00 PM - The bite is good right now at the South Jetty. Not as good as this morning, but still a lot of fish being caught."

Many anglers ask about reading the beach when surf fishing. "Poppy" a very good angler has posted another very good description with pictures on Stripers Online. Check it out: Reading the Beach He draws it out completely! If you're not catching fish in the surf, you need to study this!

J.J. from the Oceanic Fishing Pier reports on 06/13: "Lots of blues, small stripers and shad under the lights at night. We are catching a few flounder, some small sea bass and tautog during the daytime hours." Oceanic Pier (410-289-2602)

Capt. Monty on the " Morning Star Fish Report 6/12/16 Sea Bass Bite Still OK(ish) A Sign Of Flounder National Reef Conference

Sailing Daily For June Sea Bass Weather Permitting - Saturday's 6:30 to 3:30 - $125.00 - Otherwise 7 to 3 at $110.00.. Saving Sundays In July For Research - For Now.

Opening July! Now taking flounder/sea bass reservations for July. Honestly - If you book July there's no way to know whether fluke or sea bass will bite better on any day. I absolutely couldn't guess; but I do know my crew & I will be trying our best to make everyday a success.

Reservations Required at 410 520 2076 - LEAVE YOUR BEST POSSIBLE CONTACT NUMBER - Weather Cancelations Are Common - I Make Every Attempt To Let Clients Sleep In If The Weather's Not Going Our Way.

Be a half hour early! We always leave early! ..except when someone shows up right on time. Clients arriving late will see the west end of an east bound boat. With a limited number of reserved spots, I do not refund because you over-slept or had a flat.

Dramamine Is Cheap Insurance! (Meclizine's Better!) Crystalized Ginger Works Great Too. It's Simple To Prevent Motion Sickness, Difficult To Cure. If You Suffer Mal-de-Mer In A Car You Should Experiment On Shorter Half-Day Trips First! (Wockenfuss Candies sells crystalized ginger locally - We usually have some aboard - Better is Nuts.Com.. Chewable Meclizine is a good pharmaceutical, there's also a "less drowsy" meclizine pill that a lot of clients like; Scopolamine Patches are the gold standard.)

Honestly - If you get to go on the ocean once month, once a year, or even less; why risk chumming all day? Similarly, if you howl at the moon all night, chances are good you'll howl into a bucket all day.

Bring A Cooler With Ice For Your Fish - A 48 Quart Is Fine For A Few People. No Galley! BYO Sandwiches and Soft Drinks. A few beers in cans is fine. (bottles break at bad times)

If You Won't Measure and Count Your Fish, The State Will Provide A Man With A Gun To Do It For You. We Measure and Count — ALWAYS — No Exceptions!

Greetings All, "Catching sea bass, if tapered somewhat from early on, continues. High man is usually in double digits. Low man usually missed my warning about mal-de-mer medications. Had a big party on Saturday who missed the part about "if you howl at the moon, you'll howl into a bucket".. Nine guys down for the count.. History's primary admonishment is that we fail to learn from history. Promise one thing, a wicked hangover and rough seas make for a brutal lesson.

Sea bass aside, we're starting to see an occasional flounder. Even had some guy get lucky and knock out a limit in a short while. That was just once. Most days, however, we ARE NOT seeing any flounder. Given the forecast for the coming weekend, it may be some while before things settle our favor for flatfish pursuits.

I'm see an amazing turn of spawning age; of small sea bass switching to male at even 7.5 inches. They almost all start as female - only some switch to male to meet the needs of each reef's spawning population. I have not seen a 7.5 inch male in forever. We used to see hundreds every day.. While some curse commercial effort, recreational overfishing, and even climate change for our poor sea bassing these many years, I have been trying to convince managers of a delay in sea bass spawning related to size limit for almost 9 years now."

Lots of large bass in Red Mill pond killing black Zoom worms. Bluefish were all over the beach yesterday from Cape Henlopen to 3Rs Rd. Rob Grodzicki caught this awesome 7.51# weakfish on peeler crab from Lewes Harbour Marina… Jerry Ford's 44” striper caught at Roosevelt Inlet on a 1/2oz chartreuse bucktail with GULP curly tail minnow trailer, steel leader and 15# test drift fishing Josh Franck nailed a 13.45# blue at Cape Henlopen on mullet.

The fish is a member of the jack family. Wes Hobbs caught 3 blues to 10# at the Lewes Pier on plugs. Scott Stapleford reports that there are loads of yellowfin in Poormans Canyon. Mako and two dolphin were also caught yesterday. Nino Mallari and crew fished between the Norfolk and Washington Canyons trolling 12 rods when they all went down with only four people aboard to work them. Although most were lost, they managed to fill up and headed home early with 30-50# tuna and some mai mai as well. Brian Elliott of Bill’s Sport Sho[p, fished with eel at IRI and had 4 stripers up to 41”. A 36 1/2 " striper at IRI was caught on a Tsunami plastic by Pete Sivils. Small trout reported at Broadkill in the evening on Perdue peeler. Bob Warehime, Scott Schindler and Ike Megonnell caught 3 black drum to 31# on frozen clams at the Coral Beds in DE Bay. Rich Seeley brought in a 16#, 37” striper on whole Mullet at Herring Point. Ms Perce fished the pier and had a 16 ¾” flounder on a minnow. She had a larger one as well but got a little over anxious and the net and the fish failed to meet up.. The crew at Oyster Bay Tackle reports that they weighed in a number of keeper stripers caught by surfcasters fishing the Ocean city beach. Bluefish up to 36” are being caught by anglers tossing Gotcha plugs, speck rigs and spoons from the North jetty, the Route 50 bridge and from boats drifting the inlet. Colby and Ashley from Pa. fished the Route 50 bridge and caught a 31” chopper bluefish along with smaller blues and short stripers. A customer, Jason, stopped in this afternoon reporting he caught several blues to 15# this morning on bucktails at the pier. June 2, 2016 report from Sunset Marina in OC: “Leading up to the Mako Mania Tournament this weekend we had a couple of charters run out to investigate some good spots. “Marli” returned from the Norfolk with 9 yellowfin and 7 dolphin. “Boss Hogg” had MMA fighter Royce Gracie on the boat and he took time off from the ring to wrangle in his first white marlin! The crew also had a good haul of 4 yellowfin, 17 dolphin and a nice 180# mako. It looks like we are going to have a lot of boats fishing the tournament this weekend so if you want to see some awesome looking sharks make sure you stop in to the marina! The Norfolk Canyon was the hot spot. The fish seemed to be scattered out but we still had some nice reports back at the dock. “Reel Fantasy” caught 11 yellowfin, 11 dolphin and 1 mako, “Osprey” brought back 9 yellowfin and 4 dolphin, “Buckshot” brought in 12 yellowfin and 4 gaffer dolphin, “My Cin” caught 3 yellowfin, 4 dolphin and a mako. “Marli” had 5 dolphin and 2 yellowfin, “C-Boys” had a mix of a white marlin release, 3 yellowfin and 3 dolphin. “Boss Hogg” was able to catch 6 nice yellowfin and 5 dolphin. Hunter Dilley fished next to the pier and caught the biggest blue of his young life. He got his picture taken and released the big guy. A few trout are being caught at night in the 2 1/2 to 3# range. Ron Capone fished the pier at Cape Henelopen using plugs and had 5 blue fish up to 13#. Sounding like a broken record - the pier is the place to be for the bluefish these days. You can see the pods coming and all you have to do is cast into them with metal or top water plugs and you’re hooked up. The pier is also producing catches of flounder using minnows, squid, and Gulp."

Anglers fishing in Ocean City will need to purchase a saltwater fishing license. This license will cover both the Chesapeake Bay and the coastal waters and surf of Ocean City and Assateague Island. Yes, this includes surf fishing. If you already have a Chesapeake Bay Saltwater license you are good to go! Anglers will be able to purchase the license online or come to Oyster Bay Tackle to purchase one. Please bring cash to buy your fishing license in our store. If you go online, Logon if you have ever had a MD fishing or hunting license in the past or Enroll if you never had. Fill in all the information and click on "Purchase License" The license you want to choose is "Bay and Coastal Sport" You can either choose a year-round or 7-day. If you know you are coming to Ocean City,and you want to get it done ahead of time you can also call a toll free number (1-855-855-3906) or print and mail in an application.

Boat Licenses: $50 and everyone on your boat can go fishing without a license. You will get a personal license along with your boat license, so you can go shore fishing as well. Mail the application to their main office: Maryland Dept. of Natural resources Annapolis Service Center P.O. Box 1869 1804 West Street, Suite 300 Annapolis, MD 21401

If you are going to be fishing on a private boat with someone who has a Boat License, you don't have to buy a license, but you do have to register online. This is free and is done on the same site that you would buy a license. Logon if you have ever had a MD fishing or hunting license or Enroll if you never had. Fill in all the information and click on "Obtain Registration" to print your free registration. Print out your number and keep an id with you when you go fishing.

Another interesting note about the license is that if you buy a VA license, it is good in MD, and vice versa. If you are fishing in MD with a VA licence you do need to register with MD online.
