Longfin2,

We are planning to be down there during the Easter weekend. You being the tog expert, is that a good time for tog also?

Doug, the fiance and I are gonna be there that saturday. We killed the flounder last year on the same date. Tog should be there especially if you fish the warmer outgoing tide. I think we're gonna give both a try.

Hey Doug, just looked at a report from April 11th of last year and they were catching tog at the Indian River Inlet so yeah, they should be there.

Seems the first flounder in OC are always caught the last week in March or the first week of April, so I wouldn't say WAY too early. Larry is probably just trying to drum up some business for the local B&T's.

Shallow waters

Hi Gang:

The big females should be in . Look over at your NOAA chart. Find the mud bottoms in the south end of the bays and you'll find those Flounder(FLUKE). Also look at the dark sand(gray) areas close to those mud bottom areas. As the water warm in the day, the females will mov over to the gray sand areas to feed, and move back again as the water cools down for the day.
HINT....HINT....HINT... the word to catch these fish is:
SSSLLLOOOWWW...SSSLLLOOOWWW...SSSLLLOOOWWW

Plain doormatter rigs WITHOUT Spinner blades will work on the drift.
HINT....HINT....HINT.... Use a chrome ball...aka...Dormatter Express to get the FLUKEs attention. WORK IT SSSLLLOOOWWWLLLYYY up and down with lots of HESITATION at the top of the SSSLLLOOOWWW JIGging action.

These big females are CCOOLLDD and have finished spawing. The want food BUT WON'T CHASE it. They will follow a bait, but, IT MUST BE SLOWLY WORKED.

Read my sites tips and tricks for these wonderfull critters.

Also work in and around Ocean City,, have only seen clam dredgers working, tog fishing is the best bet for the next couple of weeks, there are better chances of connecting with stripers than flounder this weekend

There was a 17 1/2 inch flounder caught at the Inlet Saturday morning. That is the only one that I have heard of. Indian River is producing some flounder.
