The skies are clearing and the boats are out there fishing. We have full lot at the ramp today, so folks are out fishing. The forecast looks good for some flounder fishing this weekend. With over $100,000 in prizes, the Flounder Pounder tournament should have a great turnout with hundreds of boats participating.
Here are some pics and reports from some recent catches:
George Kovalich of Millville, DE, holds this 4lb king mackerel that his wife Christine Conover caught while they were on the afternoon trip on the Judy V. with Capt. Chris Adams. Christine worked so hard to catch the fish she had to take a break over at the bar at Hammerheads.
Father, son team Erik Llufrio of Fredericksburg, VA and Paul Llufrio of Middle River, MD caught these keeper fish while on the head boat Judy V. with Capt. Chris Adams. They were fishing around on the Old Grounds and hooked up with this 2lb flounder and 13 inch black sea bass while using squid.
The full day trip on the Capt. Bob II was a good day finally for flounder fishing. Tony Kuypers of Denville, NJ and Connie and Sam Groff of Peach Bottom, PA caught flounder weighing up to 3.5lbs at the Old Grounds. Some were using pink fluke killers and some were using cut bait.
Justin and Jacob McGuire of Middletown, DE fished out at Massey’s on the Makin’ Time and caught this 8.8lb mahi and 47lb yellow fin tuna. They were trolling with ballyhoo.
