RipTide Bait and Tackle

Babu Sport Fishing had non-stop action all day. Great job Capt John. If you want to book a charter and get into the action, give him a call at 410-320-9351.

Capt AndyWe did a 4 hour bay trip this morning with the Hampton's fishing behind Atlantic City. They had a lot of fun catching about 40 fluke, a couple of seabass, and a sand shark. One fat 20 inch fluke will be on the dinner table tonight. The cool northeast wind made for no greenheads, but we did have some rain. Riptide B&T spearing and squid continue to be the best bait.
