Epic Afternoon

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.

It was a pretty dreary one in and around Ocean City today.  The wind was blowing pretty good this morning, temperatures were dropping quick and there were a few rain drops to dodge if you were doing anything outside.  It was definitely a day that I didn’t expect to get any fishing reports…..I was wrong.

It was Karen’s day off today so Captain Jeff Coats of Pitboss Fishing had his fiance’ out for what turned out to be an epic afternoon of inshore fishing.  Captain Jeff and Karen started at the south jetty where they caught some snapper bluefish and tautog on just about every other cast.  By the time they ran out of sand fleas they had caught several small blues, a sea bass, a black drum, a bunch of 13″ to 15″ tautog, two tautog that landed right on 16″ that were released and one 19″ that ended up in the box.

After the fleas ran out it was over to the route 50 bridge with Big Bird’s World Famous Roy Rig where Karen’s first cast rewarded her with a healthy 18.5″ flounder that went in the box.  Captain Jeff added some more snapper bluefish and some short rockfish for an epic day of inshore fishing.

I’m looking forward to referring to Karen as Captain Jeff’s wife in just a few short weeks!
