What a difference a week makes - especially if the temps are sizzling. The bite for flounder has really improved with keepers being caught in the Chincoteague Channel in front of Capt. Bob’s between Buoys 17 and navigating north all the way into the Chincoteague Bay in front of the high school. Other areas where Ole flattie has hit the coolers have been Marsh Island (for the ole timers that would be the waters of Black Narrows) and the Assateague Channel. The long awaited migration has arrived. Using a tandem rig - popular buck tail colors have been pink, chartreuse and orange. Baits have been Gulp Swimming Mullet coupled with a live jumbo minnow simultaneously having another pole (or 2,3 4???) using silversides doubling up two on each hook. Showing up in good numbers are croaker although they are small in size. It was reported 14” kingfish/whiting are beginning to saturate the Assateague Channel as well. The striper and drum bite slowing down in the surf while the shark bite heats up. Also lots of kingfish, croaker, spot and other smaller panfish as well as cow nose rays. The Inlet going east towards 2TL (Turners Lump) breaking bad with not only inshore Coastal sharks but hammers, duskies and blue sharks. Grab some bunker but for a guaranteed catch use mackerel- and head east. Be prepared for the masses of cow nose rays that are heavy right now cuz they are mating. Blackfish Banks still hasn’t turned on yet but should with the winds dying out. What has not disappointed this past week has been crabbing. Nice big meaty ones. Don’t forget Capt. Bob’s Marina is having a Kids Kingfish Tournament ages 5-15, heaviest kingfish wins $250 cash with other prizes for 2nd thru 5th place weigh ins. Mark your calendars July 2nd through July 11th.

The Staiger charter discovered the ‘REAL’ Hammertime! Ryan from Philly scores a hefty Hammerhead in the Inlet. Catch & release of course.

Rob Tharpe, Chincoteague fished with Bobby & Susie Mannon from Delaware, caught 11 flounder in front of Capt. Bob’s Marina, 4 measuring more than 20”
