Ocean City: Capt. Monty Hawkins says it takes a stiff wind to get the fall season under way. Well, Hurricane Fabian and the remnants of Henri have provided that. Sue Foster of Oyster Bay Tackle says snapper blues and small trout are coming back. At Oceanic Pier, night anglers working the incoming tide caught croakers, blues, trout in the 13- to 16-inch range, blues and flounders. The lures du jour were Got-cha Plugs, Spec rigs and small curl-tail grubs on lead heads. Daytime anglers were catching croakers and flounders, with one angler landing a 22 1/2 -inch flounder. Shantytown Pier reported striper catches of 30, 34 and 36 inches. Stripers are still hitting the bay near Sixth Street and in the inlet, both at the North and South jetties. Live eels and spot, and Storm Lures seem to work best. Richard Fouts of Glen Bernie caught a 23-pound striper from the South Jetty on a Storm Lure. Offshore, chunkers are enjoying a nice run of bluefin tuna at the Hambone, 20-fathom Sausages and Massey's Canyon. A smattering of yellowfins have been mixed in. Sea bass season reopens Tuesday.
