WGMD Fishing Report 6-13-18


The maiden voyage of the Elizabeth Ann was a great trip with a 76lb blue fin tuna and 3 yellow fin tuna (largest 32.3lbs) being caught at the Baltimore Canyon. Angler Tom Healy caught these fish and 5 skippies trolling ballyhoo on spreader bars.

Small craft advisories were still up on Tuesday so ocean and bay boats remained in port.  Conditions look to improve for the rest of the week.

Indian River Inlet was the place to be on Tuesday as Clark at Old Inlet Bait and Tackle reported a seven-pound flounder was caught on a bucktail with Gulp! from the rocks west of the southside campgrounds.  The anglers refused to give their names or have their photo taken.  Must be in the witness protection program or have ex-wives looking for them.  Clark also mentioned the surf is getting clearer so perhaps we will see more kings and blues caught later this week.

At Hook ‘em and Cook ‘em Chris, said Captain Aaron Herd on the Gale Force had two keeper flounder from the inlet.  Captain Herd runs inlet charters on a regular basis.

It looks like we will have some decent weather this weekend for the first time in a long time.  I hope all those who must work during the week can get out and do some serious fishing on Saturday and Sunday.
