WGMD Fishing Report 7-24-18


The full day trip on the Capt. Bob II found a patch of flounder that decided to bite on Saturday’s trip. Capt. Roger Meekins reported that the bite was slow for most of the morning but when the tide changed in the early afternoon the fishing turned to catching. The trip wound up with 34 keeper flounder and 16 keeper sea bass. Pictured are the Ventura Family, Jeff Windsor, Dutch Workman, Josh Yarber, Craig Jenkins, Bob Gunkel and Sam and Connie Groff.

Small craft advisories were posted for Tuesday and it looks like they will be up again on Wednesday and Thursday.
