Flounder fishing was great this year and the presence of the tow boat and Marine police was evident all season. Thanks to everyone who kept the water clean and no littering.. Can't wait until strippers start running

We went over and back again on the 9th street bridge. I took a few pics coming back into town it was so pretty. The new Bridge really let you see ocean city when you come in.
