Dorian is visiting Ocean City

Postby Gecha (Gerry) » Fri Sep 06, 2019 6:25 pm

Cape Hatteras was hit hard earlier with heavy rain and strong winds.
Now Dorian's eye is east of Ocean City, luckily far enough offshore so it should not be catastrophic for us.
Since this morning, we have strong winds and the water level is rising.
The boardwalk is getting sanded a bit.

Surf is not as rough as anticipated by weathermen.

Water was still pretty high Saturday, but nice sunshine, temp in the 80's and no wind.
Got on the water around 6:30 pm fished until 11:30 under route 50 bridge.
Landed 4 stripers and a bluefish, missed many more.
Today getting the Longfin ready as we plan going offshore Monday for cobia.
Tuesday plan is to go crabbing. About 20 traps in the water now, we hope to get 5-6 dozens blue crabs in the steamer.

Sorry but no offshore fishing today for cobia. We need very calm sea for cobia, that won't happen today. Will have to wait for the perfect day to go out.
Fished under the route 50 bridge yesterday from 7 to 9 pm with my friend Lance.
We started fishing with finger mullets and got a flounder and a bluefish, then a bunch of dolphins showed up, probably chasing a school of big bunkers we saw at the surface, threw the cast net at them and got over a 5 gallon bucket full on the first try. Filled the livewell to use as live bait, the rest was heading to the freezer for crab bait tomorrow.
And the fun begin. Using the live bunkers, on every drift under the bridge we caught stripers. We ended up with over 20 caught, had 4 doubles. Kept only 1 that was badly hooked.
Now getting ready to go crabbing :D
Tonight menu: Striper filet and a few dozens blue crabs. ;)

The blue crabs were plentiful and DELICIOUS. Will have the striper filet another time.
Today is too windy to go cobia fishing.
Yesterday I spent a few hours enjoying good time on the pontoon fishing with sabiki rigs for bait fish. Caught a bunch of different sized spots, and also caught this unusual puffer fish.

Usually the ones we catch here don't have spikes.

Ended the day with another beautiful sunset.
