Went out in the OC Md bay on 5/9 fishing the flats just west of the Thoroughfare on the outgoing tide with my fishing buddy John from 9am to around 1pm. Caught one short flounder at 16.5 inches which would have been legal last year. We were using tandem rigs with a 1/4 ounce jig and gulp on top and various covered gulp and minnows on bottom rig.
Caught the short on the lower rig with white gulp and a pink skirt. There were around 5 or 6 boats out with us all in the Thoroughfare and most were fishing the shallows on the east side of the channel. action was slow and one boat said they had one legal flounder caught right in the channel in about 8 foot of water.
