Ocean Bounty - Give Thanks
Location: Ocean City
The Ocean abounds with life. Sea Bass continue to fatten up for winter. They are steady moving offshore - now 28 to 35 miles off in 140 feet of water. Sunday was the best weather day of the long weekend and I finally made it offshore seeking some sea bass. Dog sharks patrol the structures and are joined by Bluefish terrorizing the wrecks. Bluefin Tuna are abundant at the same depths as are sea bass, drawing birds and jumping out of the water, making big crashes when they hit the water. The tuna fish we saw are over one hundred pounds. The depth finder is lit up with all kinds of fish signals - too many to fish in a day.
