FISHING REPORT WEEK ENDING July 12th

The week started off really nice, minimal winds, warm days, plenty of sun perfect fishing weathFISHING REPORT WEEK ENDING July 12ther. And the fish are here!! Flounder are everywhere with anglers normally maxing their limits. The Chincoteague Channel has been a parking lot for boats seeking to fill their coolers. Overflowing to both sides of the Queen Sound Bridge where anglers are pulling in keepers in that area and north to the Fingers. But the hottest fishing hole is definitely under the Assateague Bridge where anglers are maxing out each trip. Orange GULP is flying off the shelves as well as jumbo minnows being emptied out of the Minnow tanks. Families with smaller children loving the thrill of pulling up kingfish, ribbonfish and croaker are working the Inlet from Buoy 11 up to Buoy 14. Thrill seeking anglers venture outside the Inlet navigating past Buoy 10 to Turners Lump or aka 2TL for shark fever not limiting the variety to just finetooth or Atlantic sharpnose but larger predators such as dusky, blue, lemon or hammers. In the creeks and along the inside of the breakers red drum making an early arrival putting smiles on many faces as well as nice cobia, flounder, sheepshead, tautog, triggerfish and sea bass at the artificial reef, Blackfish Banks. The boats were so numerous at the reef, aka Subway Cars, that some tempers were tested. The Canyons giving up fat yellowfin tuna exceeding 70-78 lbs and respectable blue fin. As the week winds up - the approaching tropical storm was beginning to have an effect on fishing. It was like someone flipped a switch and poof they were gone. Hot honey holes produced zip. Not a flounder anywhere. Even the sharks seemed to move out. Friday morning brought sheets of pounding rain and winds at 25-30 gusting to 35-40MPH. Stirring up the sea bed making grayish brown waters and plenty of seaweed and sludge. Saturday still had a breeze with SW winds 10-15 and no boats in the channel, no reports of any catches. Normal after a day of storms n strong winds. Tomorrow the fish will filter back into the channels n inlets until another storm. The year of COVID19 can be remembered not only for the pandemic but also as a year of fabulous fishing. Truly a fisherman’s paradise!!
