>Al Boyd caught a 24" flounder at IRI on live mullet.
>Captain John had a good weekend of fishing in spite of the long stretched out swells. He had a nice catch of false albacore, small blues and seabass. Seabass average was 5 keepers per person.
>Sue Foster, Oyster Bay Tackle, OC, said that red drum was caught from the Assateague surf this weekend! Blues were biting in the the surf when conditions weren't too rough to hold bottom. Flounder are biting inshore and offshore when the water is clear. Tautog are turning on as the water cools. Stripers and bluefish are biting around the Rt. 50 Bridge. Indian River has had good blue fishing and lots of short stripers. Offshore sea bass and flounder fishing is improving. Further offshore, saw lots of white marlin and some dolphin.
>Capt. Carey Evans, Grizzly Sportfishing", sent us an email that inshore bottom fishing continues to see a mixed bag of catches including croakers, flounder, seabass, bluefish and blowfish. He expects this to continue when tog fishing reopens. After the passage of the hurricane, they went on an overnighter and managed to troll up a few dolphin. As they headed back to shore, they caught a yellowfin and three more dolphin for the trip.
