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.

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 :eek:, 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 .
