Is there any good surf fishing during the winter? I’m planning on spending a weekend in January. Thanks!

You can catch fish all yearlong in OC.  Our neighbor fishes in January and she catches some decent sized fish.  I would give it a try.  You may have to bring your own bait, as I believe all the tackle shops are closed.  You can also try fishing the Indian River inlet.

You can get some great fish surf fishing in OC in the winter. Just be ware that you need a license to fsurf fish in MD if you are 16 years old or older. Find out more about Maryland's Fishing License requirements here.

The fish need to eat so I say go surf fishing and have a blast. Hopefully the fish are biting that day.

Good Luck.
