    If you catch a porgy in MD it will be an accident. If you want
    to target them then you need to head up North to NJ and above.

    If you fish at Ocean city inlet, you may get it. It is not so rare.

    Sorry my friend . I catch all I want in August , September and in to October in the back bays of OC . The only thing is , is that that most of them are too small to keep . As far as dinner plate size scup , you need to be much further offshore in the winter months and as you said , go north .

    Hey Eugene!!! How's school? Miss ya brother!

    I mean when I was a kid a long freakin' time ago , he was talking like they didn't catch them anymore. You had to get out in a boat down around Breezy Point and below.

    Sounds like you said the same thing I did? Unless you are telling
    the OP that he can target keepers in MD? Bottom line: If you want
    to target keeper porgies then go North correct?

    Go north for the big ones but I can usually catch enough legal size fish to make a nice dinner while fishing for bait spot with fishbites in the bay around the Verrazano Bridge in the late summer into the fall . In the 60's and 70's you could catch all you want on most headboats in OC and Delaware .
