Default Ocean City MD next week

Thanks for all of the tips for DC. Scrapped that idea due to timing.

We are off to pre-season beach vacation in OC, MD.

Is there any type of fishing that can be had off the beach or at a local pier?

Not looking to do any charters, just drop a line for a little bit one or two days.

I am by no means an OC expert so I am sure others will chime in. You can fish right at the Inlet or off the pier on 6th st (could be 5th or so but once you get down there you will see the pier). I have had pretty good luck in both places and I also see a lot of people fishing off the Route 50 bridge but I have never tried it.

I love OCMD. It's my family's favorite vacation spot. Fishing from the jetties, piers and bridges is quite good. Enjoy yourself. Can't say I'm not a little jealous.

I've only been there in July and August. Caught lots of flounder, kingfish, small sharks, triggerfish, sea bass and the ever popular sea robin

Being that you are going next week, gear up for stripers.

www.coastal-fisherman.com

from bulkheads/rocks there are tog and flounder to be cought. you could hang with the crazy crowd on the rt. 50 bridge at night for rockfish. try end if incoming first of outgoing.

see if the bay bee or tortuga are running flounder trips yet. $40 or so and you're fishing the bay.

under the lights at the OC inlet in front of Harrisons Harborwatch.

also at indian river inlet but BE CAREFUL fishing the rocks there. dangerous.

might also catch rock from the rt 50 bridge. sassy shad or gotcha plugs cast upstream and retrieved. keep 'em off the bottom around the bridge lots of snags.
