Blackfishing was a struggle yesterday on the Stray Cat “until the bite came on shrimp!” Capt. Mike wrote in an email. Fishing for the tautog is always changing. Sometimes jigs catch best, sometimes crabs do. Sometimes soft bait like clams work best. But the angling’s good, everything’s good, he said, and only a week is left of blackfish season that closes beginning May 1. Trips aboard have been catching at Ocean City Reef at wrecks. On Sunday’s trip, the bites came in waves. The water was 47 to 49 degrees, and sea bass began to show up. Open-boat trips are blackfishing on every day when weather’s fit.
