Some nice tautog were reported up to 4 pounds from the Bulkhead in Ocean City along 2nd through 4th Streets. Anglers in boats caught tautog along the rocks at Martha's Landing. Anglers on the Oceanic Pier had a nice run of "short" stripers on Saturday night. At least one keeper striper was caught on Assateague surf along with a report of another black drum.
Delaware Beaches saw a few "short" stripers. It's likely more were caught, but that's what I heard about. A couple keeper flounder were reported down by the Assateague Bridge along with some "short" stripers.
