Fishing Report: October 13, 2014
Well it’s back to the grind for most families today; school and work are a priority, but for many it’s their day off or they are enjoying some retirement time and are fishing. The area produced some decent fishing this past weekend and the most adamant anglers were most successful in the area. The weather cooled over the weekend and the overcast continues through Monday, this is ideal for redfish and rockfish in the area.
NOTE: Several anglers called in or stopped by the store curious to know if we had 12ft surf rods and the answer is, “YES!” Brands such as: Penn, Star Rod, Daiwa, Surf King, Tsunami, Sea Striker, TICA, and more. Rods will range in weight ability: averaging 3-14 ounces. The styles are both conventional rods and spinning rods.
Report: Several Red Drum out of the slot and keeper size were caught and some released off the Assateague surf; anglers were most successful with cut bait and drum rigs. Weight size varied from 3 oz – 10 oz depending on the tide and wind. Several bluefish were caught with finger mullet, cut bait, and bloodworms. There are still plenty of kingfish biting off the surf and inlet; best baits are bloodworms, cut bait, squid, shrimp, and fish bites. Flounder are still biting off the inlet and in the channels; biting live minnows and gulps. Rockfish bites are picking up in the channels and sounds; they are chasing swim baits. Captain Steve’s carries a large variety of these baits including GLOW bucktails and GLOW gulp bait for night fishing!
We hope to see you very soon at the store! Tight Lines Everyone.

Thresher Shark that washed up had lots of folks talking; this is rare. They have very long tails that are known for stunning their prey. They tend to eat bluefish, juvenile tuna, mackerel, squid, cuttlefish, and even crustaceans or seabirds.
