At Fin-Atics in Ocean City Dan said kingfish and dogfish are basically the bulk of whats in the surf at the moment. Kings are hitting around mid-tide hours in the middle of the island. A few bass are still running around still around the bridges with soft baits getting the schoolies and live eels banging on fish to 30 pounds. Some weakfish are hanging around Corsons Inlet during the morning hours before the boat traffic kicks in.

The Ingredient from Fin-Atics of Ocean City told of a hectic yellowfin bite halfway between the Spencer and Wilmington, but We had to pick through a whole lot of fish as short as 22 inches. We had keepers to 70 pounds, but where we were, there were lots more smaller fish mixed in. In the morning, the chomp was to medium ballyhoo at a 5.5-knot clip, with the afternoon smash to white Sterling 9-inch bars tracked at the same speed. He points to the Wilmington where intel regarding bigeye to 60 pounds being decked is trickling in.

Fin-Attics in Ocean City has a huge kayak customer following. These anglers report fantastic back bay flounder and sheepshead fishing. The flounder are in as little as 10 feet of water along the ICW between Ocean City and Strathmere. Outgoing tides have been nudging out incoming as the tide of choice, and the Gulp on Gulp (bucktail tipped Gulp with a Gulp Grub teaster) combo seems to be outfishing all other baits. Some really nice fish to 5 pounds were caught this week and many customers said they were able to catch a limit of flounder for the first time in many years. The sheepshead bite also seems to be the best in years and we hear of up to 12 fish caught on a single trip with the largest fish (which was released) weighing in at 9 pounds. Green crabs and fiddlers are working well on the sheep, and outgoing tide has also been the tide of choice for this species. Lastly, the kingfish bite is on fire from the beachfront to the inlet with bloodworms being the top bait, but a few are starting to fall for Fishbites Bag O Worms.
