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 2017 fishing season for the Ocean City Marlin Club is in the books and all of the awards were handed out over the weekend.  Everyone will probably admit that the fishing this season could have been better, but it was still an awesome summer with camaraderie and competition within the best fishing club in the world.  There were a total of 794 white marlin, 83 blue marlin, 3 sailfish, 3 spearfish and 1 swordfish released by club boats this year.  Here our this year’s winners.

Special thanks to Amanda Shick of the Ocean City Marlin Club and Dave Messick of Hooked on OC.
