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.

There may be lots of "throwback" flounders in Ocean City, but there are also lots of keepers.The throwbacks under the legal limit size of 13 inches aractually a good sign, though, because it means flounder are spawning and are coming into the bays.BAlong with these smaller fish are good-sized flounder in the 2- to 2 1/2 -pound range. Barbara Glinka of Bahia Marina reported seeing some of these larger fish taken on the bay-going party boat Tortuga. She said live minnows have been the preferred bait.

Ever since the waters calmed down after Hurricane Bob, offshore fishing has been hot. One of the most exciting catches has been the longfin albacore. These fish, which most anglers call true albacore, are the most valuable of tuna -- they are the ones that are canned and labeled "white meat tuna."Most of the longfins were taken in 100 to 200 fathoms of water on rigged ballyhoo or lures such as the green machine.The big eye tuna was also in evidence last weekend. Gregg Schmehling of Ocean Pines fought a huge 335-pound big eye for 2 1/2 hours on the Remedy II. The fish took a ballyhoo in the Washington Canyon.
