Twenty-pound blackfish were virtually unheard of when I was a kid, but they continue to come of areas fished by boats out of Indian River Inlet in Maryland. Veteran angler Dennis Muhlenforth scored the latest with a 20+pound, 31-incher on the Fish Bound from Ocean City.

That tog was released, and was also the 16th of at least 20 pounds caught on Fish Bound over the years.

Capt. Fred Gamboa is busy at the Saltwater Expo which continues through Sunday at the N.J. Expo Center in Edison. but his Andreas Toy is in the water at Perth Amboy and already finding school stripers in the back of Raritan Bay.

The Saturday forecast is for west winds at 10-15 knots plus gusts to 20.

I haven;t been getting ay winter flounder reports, but Tom O’Conner called with his results after a few hours at Belmar this morning when he caught four on sandworms including 13-and14-inch keepers. .


  1. Hi Al, hope you are well! Question, I know there is an Indian River Inlet in Delaware, but I wasn’t aware of an Indian River Inlet in Mayland. Are there two Indian River Inlets?
