Our combined clubs, MSSA/ACC and the Ocean Pines Anglers, held their annual Flounder Frenzy on Thursday for members and guests.

We had thirty-eight participants. With 95% of the captains reporting, 245 flounder were landed that included 45 legal fish.

The winning fish was caught by Bill Walsh @ 26". Second place was Jim Giles @ 24 1/2" and third place was Dave Rippey @ 23 1/4". It seemed that fishing was great through the bay area as fish were caught at the Rt.90 bridge, the Thoroughfare, the Rt 50 bridge and at the airport area.

If you are not a member of these two clubs you are invited to join as we work hard to protect the recreational fishery and ensure the health of the coastal bays and Atlantic Ocean.aymloEKh0Fg4HPZ2E87n86Udvs4FoWqwSHUAAAAASUVORK5CYII=

Yesterday was the MSSA/Ocean Pines Anglers flounder tournament. The flounder were chewing, too, with one boat reportedly catching nearly 40. The winning flattie was 6 lbs.-plus and 26", followed by a 24, a 23, a couple of 22's and lots of 20's. The usual spots were productive (except maybe the Thorofare-it was dirty when I was up there), and guys used artificials and live or frozen bait with apparently little difference in productivity. My partner and I fished in water no deeper than 7' and boated 8 (2 keepers), and lost another 3 :crybaby2:.
