The striper season is winding down and we are currently going into the usual summer transitional phase. Water temperatures are getting very warm and with the wind forecast for the next week, it could even get a little warmer. This may start the sharking season a little early and by the end of the week, we could start seeing some larger critters in the surf zone. Some of the usual suspects are out there this time of year- kingfish, blues and flounder in the back bays.

Feel free to post your reports here, fish or no fish.

now in a good current with that rolling across the bottom catching your line it could get real exciting for a moment...clicker going off, rod doubled over...ROPE ON!

I think someone drum season fought a net that took them a couple hundred yards down the beach...then came back to a drum on another rod. AISURFFISH?

fished most of the day until the wind blew us off the beach around 6:30.

I had the biggest hit I have ever seen on my one rod. My Penn 525 SCREAMED and SCREAMED! I was half spooled by the time I ran the 10 ft to my rod and 30 - 45 seconds later I was pretty much down to my spool. well I got some line back and then all of a sudden LIMP..... Bait came in whole just mushed a bit, no bite marks.

I have no idea what it was, but it was FAS and swam straight out!

I fished Ocean City today from 2:oo to 5:30. I caught two fish 10" and 23", both on chicken breast. The tide was ripping in the entire afternoon. The water was 6" over the dock when I got back to the ramp. It looks like the next few days the fishing will suffer due to spring tides and the new moon on the 15th.
