Fishing

Ocean City is a prime place for exciting sportfishing and casual fishing recreation. From bluefish to weakfish and lots in between, the fishing action occurs year-round.

Anglers working the surf land bluefish, flounder, sea bass, tautog (blackfish), kingfish, shark and the famous striped bass (rockfish). Fishermen flock to the beach when stripers pass through by the thousands. Spring and autumn bluefish runs are equally dramatic, as the feeding reaches frenzy proportions.

In the bays and creeks, weakfish (sea trout) are a favorite, along with sea bass, “snapper” blues, croaker and flounder. West of the county, the vast Delaware Bay yields more varieties, including drumfish, sheepshead, channel catfish and more.

Just north of town, parts of the old Longport Bridge has been converted to a fishing pier. South of town the Ocean Drive/Rush Chattin Bridge was designed specially to accommodate anglers.
