When we have been able to get out of the inlet, matador charters has been doing some wreck fishing. Overall the wreck fishing has been pretty good. The only problem with wreck fishing now is that black sea bass are out of season and cannot be kept. Sea bass have been large and plentiful on most trips and have made it tough to catch our target species of tautog. Tautog are in season, but the fishing for them has been hit or miss. Sea bass season starts may 15 and when the season comes i, there should be plenty of bass available.
Drum are also beginning to show on the eastern shore and Matador charters is booking red drum and black drum fishing charters through may. These charters are best in the evenings and drum fishing is a quality over quantity type of fishing trip. On a drum trip, you may only catch a handful of fish, but the drum you catch will likely be a trophy sized fish.
Offshore, we have a number of different species available for an offshore fishing charter. Most people are booking deep drop fishing charters targeting tilefish and grouper. Offshore trolling when the gulf stream comes into range can see bluefin tuna and yellowfin tuna, and sharks and mahi mahi should be around soon.
We are booking trips all summer and many of the better charter fishing dates are booking quickly so if you are interested in booking a charter fishing trip with matador charters this summer, now is the time to book.
