Ocean City Flounder fishing trips are perfect for family groups looking to enjoy the local scenery while pulling in some tasty fish. But Flounder is more than just an easy meal. The species is one of Ocean City’s most popular inshore catches, and large summer Flounder – or Fluke, as they are known further north – are a seasonal obsession for many Maryland anglers.

Seasonality

The first early season summer Flounder show up in the shallows sometime around the last week of March or the beginning of April, and can stick around well into October. This makes them one of the longest-lasting fisheries in town, and certainly one of the most widely-enjoyed. 
 
You will normally catch the biggest fish towards the start and end of the season, but the fishing is consistently good throughout the summer months, too. The first few weeks can be some of the most enjoyable, with hungry fish swarming the shallows after long stretches at sea, gobbling up anything that comes their way.

Flounder Fishing Spots

During the spring feeding frenzy, you can basically choose any shallow sandbar, creek, river mouth, or estuary, and be swamped by hungry fish. As the waters warm up and the fish grow, you will find big Flounder in increasingly deep waters. 
 
The channel of the Ocean City Inlet itself can provide great catches, but tends to be pretty crowded. Your best bets when fishing bayside are the nearby Isle of Wight Bay, and Sinepuxent Bays, which provide plenty of sandy bottom, rocky outcrops, and great fishing opportunities. 
 
Otherwise, head out just past the inlet to the ocean side of the south jetty, where the ground slopes gently from shallow rocks to 25 feet of water, attracting fish throughout the summer thanks to its cooler temperatures. In the heat of summer, some brave fish even venture out to ocean reefs and wrecks. This can make it more difficult to consistently pull in Flounder, but only because there are so many other great species around.

Fishing Techniques

Live bait wins the day for most Ocean City Flounder lovers. Frozen Shiners and live Minnows are both highly effective in the spring, hooked on top and bottom rigs with skirts above and tasty bait fish below. If you prefer to use lures, Gulp! swimming mullet bring in their fair share of fish, although most local charter captains prefer to do things the old-fashioned way.
 
When fishing deeper waters in the warm summer months. You can bulk up to bigger baits like live Mullet or Spot. Ditch your up-and-downs in favor of simple, single-hook rigs to give you more of a feel for what is biting. You might not catch as many fish, but you will catch some monsters!

Take trip for sea bass easy first time catch, good eating, lots of fun. Don't judge the trip by the size of the boat but the history of the captain.

Keep an open mind. There are lots of species to be caught. Any day spent fishing is a day well spent.

If you're not used to being on a boat, bring dramamine, sun screen, and dress (in layers) for 10-15 degrees colder than the expected temperature and let the captain and mate do their job.

You can fish for a number of species in Ocean City, whether it be something easier to catch for you first timers, or something that has a little more weight to it for those of us that appreciate a fight on the end of our line. You also have several areas available for throwing your line in the water or you can catch a charter for a few hours of overnight. And if you don't catch what you're looking for your first day, just go out the next day. It can change overnight!

The weather changed from many days of heat, to a cool fall like air temp...a windy day, we did not expect to be at all lucky, but were incredibly surprised. Kevin & Shane were very knowledgeable on how to land these nice size fish!

Look for small charters (like the Bayside Guide Service) around the bay for flounder during the day and rockfish & blues at night. Also try the Oceanic Pier at the inlet; especially good on moving tides and at night.

Book an evening trip with Captain Tony from Saltwater Adventures and tell him you want to catch blues under the bridge, it will blow your mind if you've never done it, I've fished all my life and you will never fight a fish as strong as a blue pound for pound. CRAZY FUN!!!

Do a private charter vs. the bigger boats with 50-60 people. The bigger boats a little cheaper but you have 4 people trying to fish in less than a 4 foot spot....lots of tangles and less opportunities to get fish with so many lines in the water.
