Back at the Tunas

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.

Now that the tournament season is winding down the Fish in OC offshore fleet will get back to charter fishing.  There will be plenty of days of white marlin action coming up, and some charters will want to get out and catch a bunch of marlin, but most charters want to put some meat on the dock.  The yellowfin tuna fishing was good last season into late October and there were some fish caught as late as early December.  Hopefully that will be the case again this season and maybe today was the start of getting back to it.

Tom Jones and his crew from Annapolis, Maryland crushed the Yellowfin Tunas today on the charter boat MARLI with Captain Mark Hoos and mate Mark Stephens. The largest fish today tipped the scale at 68lbs. The action was steady all day.

My buddy David Wells fished with Dan Margott, Tommy Hinkle, Steve Ratcliff and Jeremy Michalski today and had a stellar day with the flounder.  The crew caught a limit of flounder and some nice mahi.
