Yellowfin, Bluefin, and Mahi on our first trip to the canyons this season.
Beautiful ending to another day at the office.
Had a beautiful day for wreck fishing on Tuesday.  Grace and Gail stayed busy reeling in Tog with 5 keepers and a couple of flounder.
2018 Tautog Regulation Changes

The Maryland Department of Natural Resources has announced by public notice that there will be changes to the MD commercial and recreational Tautog fishery effective May 16. The new regulations are as follows:
• May 16 - June 30 Closed Season
• July 1 - October 31 – 2 fish/person/day
• November 1 - December 31 –-4 fish/person/day
• Minimum size limit will remain 16″ and all other rules will remain the same.

Virginia’s 2018 regulations for Tautog as of February 28, 2018 are as follows:
• March 1- May 15 - 4 fish/person/day
• May 16 - June 30 Closed Season
• July 1 - December 31 – 4 fish/person/day
• Minimum size limit will remain 16″ and all other rules will remain the same.

This change provides for a longer season and increases the number of fish from 3 to 4 per/person in Virginia compared to the 2017 regulations. This also provides us with 2 additional weeks to fish for Tautog in May so take advantage of these new regulations and book a wreck fishing trip for April or May to catch some of these tasty fish!
I'm pleased to report that Virginia has announced the new 2018 season flounder regulations will be 16-1/2 inch size fish and a 4-fish per person daily limit.  This is down slightly from the 17 inch size in 2017. The new size limit brings Virginia in line with the 2018 Maryland and Delaware regulations so everyone in the Mid-Atlantic region will be flounder fishing under the same requirements.

Now we just need the water to warm up to get them on the hunt.  Finally looks like we might get a few days in the 60's so hopefully the bite will start by Mid-April. 

In the mean time, the Tog bite should start coming back on as soon as the water gets back int to the upper 40's. Remember Tog season closes May 1st in Virginia waters so if you want to get out you should be booking now for an April trip.
The North Carolina giant Bluefin tuna action continues to be outstanding, but the recreational trophy season closed on March 17th, so the action is now catch-and-release for fish over 72” caught south of Great Egg Inlet, NJ.  Just prior to the trophy fish closure an 877-pound Bluefin was caught out of Oregon Inlet, which blows away the existing NC state record 805-pound Bluefin. Now that made for a very lucky St. Patrick’s Day!
