Ocean City saw its first puppy drum of the season last weekend, a 10-pounder taken by Richard Gorleski of Denton as he was drifting near the South Jettywith squid. Ocean City got quite a number of puppy drum last season, so this is a good sign of more to come.They normally are taken on cut mullet or sand fleas. Most of the time the anglers are either fishing for tautog at the jetties or bluefish in the surf when they catch these fish.Puppy drum feed on worms and crabs turned up by the waves.

It's that time of year. Fish sense the coming of autumn, the dropping water temperatures, and the need to migrate south. They begin feeding heavily, and large flounder that kept to themselves all summer suddenly make their move out of the bay. (One wonders where they've been all summer.)One of the best places to fish for flounder this time of year (for folks without a boat) is the U.S. 50 bridge. The bridge offers two channels that are teeming with fish. Two to three hours on each side of the high tide are the best times to go.Anglers should cast into the channels with frozen shiners hooked through the eyes with a 2- to 3-inch-long strip of squid hooked beside the shiner on the same hook.

Fishing report The locations Piney Run: Small "whacky" rigger plastic worms are your best bet to catch largemouth bass, said Jim Gronaw and Loren Lustig at the park office. Surface plugs, 4- to 5-inch Cinco and Stik-O worms have all been successful, too. Hot spots are inside and outside edges of the hydrilla beds. David Sterner of Westminster caught a 22-inch, 4.8- pound largemouth bass. A number of citation-sized catfish were captured on cutbait and chicken liver. Rick Lawson of Sykesville reeled in a 25-inch, 6- pound channel catfish.

Saturday is youth deer hunting day in Maryland and wildlife biologists say if weather conditions are favorable participating hunters could take as many as 2,000 deer statewide.In order to participate, hunters under 16 must have a state junior hunter license or a non-resident license and be accompanied by a licensed or exempt hunter 21 or older. Adults cannot hunt or carry a firearm, bow or other hunting device."This special youth deer hunting season provides an opportunity for young people to receive the undivided attention of an adult willing to pass on hunting techniques, safe gun-handling skills and the enjoyment of hunting," said DNR Secretary John R.

It's that time of year when the locals head out to their favorite flounder hole and give it one last try. The flounder are making their move as they sense the coming of fall and the call of the Continental Shelf.There was a flounder lull for a couple of weeks, and many `D anglers gave up the search for the elusive fish. Now the flounder are back, and anglers are fishing for them once again.Since the flounder are heading out, it makes sense that the inlet area has been a hot spot for fluke.

On a recent trip to Ocean City, I just missed seeing Manchester's Kelly Dyer weighing in the first mako shark of the season. The dressed weight of this impressive fighter was 127 pounds, and it took a bluefish bait in the Washington Canyon.Dyer was fishing aboard Rick Obriecht's Bad Influence, captained by Tracy Dwyer out of Fisherman's Marina. Professional shark angler Mark Sampson told me it was the earliest such reported catch he had ever heard of in the Ocean City area.The Maryland mako record is the 766-pounder caught by Frank Gaither in July 1984.

Labor Day doesn't mean the end of fishing. Some of the best offshore fishing is happening now. Anyone watching the overnight boats come into port will see there are plenty of yellowfin tuna and dolphin.We recently watched the Mud Bucket II arrive at the Talbot Street Pier with six tuna in the 40- to 60-pound range and 30 dolphin.Later we saw the Full House come in at Bahia Marina with 21 yellowfin tuna and a couple of dolphin.Anglers with smaller boats shouldn't feel left out. There is plenty of action closer in. About 5 miles off the beach, Spanish mackerel are hitting on small spoons, and the first and second lumps of the Bassgrounds are seeing false albacore, king mackerel, Spanish mackerel and even bonito.
