Southern Rays

Scott is the owner of Fish in OC and host of Ocean City's fishing television show Hooked on OC. He has worked in the fishing industry and fished the waters in and around Ocean City for over 25 years.

The offshore scene was a little quiet today with only a few boats fishing the deep.  The Moore Bills and a few others in the Fish in OC fleet ran late trips today to take advantage of the good evening bite for yellowfin and bigeye tuna.  I’ll hopefully have a good report and some photos after they return late tonight and tomorrow morning.

Captain John Prather on board the Ocean City Guide Service takes center stage today with a unique trip that he offers for inshore fisherman and bow enthusiasts.  Captain John ran one of his bow fishing trips this afternoon and had a stellar time.  The Ocean City Guide Service is rigged up perfectly for this type of fishing with a nice waist high rail that runs along the bow.  It gives bow fisherman a sturdy platform to stand and shoot and puts them right up front so Captain John can sneak in on rays that are cruising the surface.  Today the Ocean City Guide Service had some throwback flounder and a hound fish while fishing, and four rays while bow fishing, including a whopping 92 pounder.


Some of the offshore fleet are out on the ocean as I write this report, and several others are back at it again tomorrow.  It’s a good time to Fish in OC!
