Boat fishing question

Recommended Posts

Hello all. I see this forum is for general information and I did read some interesting threads. My question involves fishing off of a boat in OC. I will be doing plenty of surf fishing in the 120th street (and north) area, but do have an invite to do some boat fishing either in the bay area or at the OC Inlet (which appears to be a good location). The catch (no pun intended) is the people who have the boat are not well versed in where to go, etc. Yes, they do live there, but aren't huge into fishing. My plan is to just use chunk bait (bunker and finger mullet) for blues and stripers. I thought the easiest would be to anchor somewhere and work the bottom. If there are any fishermen or women out there, please give me a clue on what areas we could sit for a few hours. My guess is doing a high tide during sunset. Trust me, I'm not asking for your hotspots, just a few areas that may bring us some tight lines.

 

All the best and thanks for reading.

Here's a fishing report from 10 May 2010 in the OC inlet:

 

 

Striper action slowed up in the surf, but some nice ones were caught in the

bay! Snapper blues were in the bay along with some larger chopper blues.

Some short striper action happened at Homer Gudelsky Park mid-week. A few

blues were in the surf along with skate and good sized dogfish. Assateague

saw a few stripers, some black drum, a skate-a-thon, and some big dogfish.

Some nice flounder were caught in the bay, but the weekend was basicly a

wipeout because of the 30 MPH winds. Inshore and offshore tautog bite was

good.

You might also want to check out OCfishing.com hope this helps. If I were you, I'd talk to some locals down at the pier - they tend to be a pretty friendly bunch of anglers.
