Default Ocean city report

Heard there was a 49 + or = striper caught inside the 3 mile limit. Did anyone else hear of this. Last report I heard was no fish or bait. They were still off Jersey.

They're heeeeerrreeee..... I can't speak to OCMD but I'm headed out tomorrow and Friday. Buddy fishing just south of Cape May caught a 50#er this week. A few 40# fish caught between the 8's and hen and chicken shoals. Looks like we may get a real migration within 3 miles this year if we are lucky.

They were very thick between barnegat and Atlantic City about 4-5 days ago here is a radar shot of the crowd trolling. I could see the schools of stripers and they were thick there were a few guys I heard on the radio getting stripped off!!!! Ghost fish mixed in

Trolled from the old coast guard station to Hens and Chickens til right before the snow started falling yesterday and got nothing. Marked a lot of bait and quite a few fish arches around the old CG station. Not so much around hens & chicks though. Too rough to get to the eights or the rips in the mouth of the DE bay for my boat yesterday. Pulled mojos and stretches. Anyone else do anything?

Decent day on Friday 12/22. Fish were scattered a few miles north of IRI and right up to the 3 mi line. Saw lots of fish boated. Many slot fish thrown back but lots of big keepers too. We managed a 43" and a 45.5". As soon as the wind lets up I hope to get back out before they are gone. Couple years ago we trolled one up on new years day.

Going to try again either Friday or sat myself. Saw some fish caught Tuesday. They may move by us quick if the water temperature falls to quickly.

Maybe 30 miles east of Corolla, haven't seen a legal fish in years inside the line. Don't even see behives anymore. Sad.

Yes this really is sad. I remember when we could hammer these winter Rock's right out of OI never mind Corolla. I wish they would return.
