Summer Coastal Fishing Report

Type: Ocean
Region: Eastern
Location: Ocean City

This summer has seen some of the warmest water temperatures near the beach in years. At the beginning of August we had consistent temperatures in the low 80ís which made for great surfing and spear fishing. It also brought in a lot of southern species that stuck around for longer than usual. We actually started targeting cobia and trigger fish. There were also a lot of summer flounder at the near shore wrecks. The head boat anglers did quite well on decent sized fluke throughout the mid and late summer.
