Fish in OC Winners and More Tuna for Moore Bills

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.

This winter Fish in OC was at six fishing and outdoor shows throughout the Northeast, the Garden State Outdoor Expo, The National Capital Sportsman Show, The Great American Outdoor Show, The Greater Philadelphia Outdoor Sports Show, The World Fishing Expo and The Saltwater Fishing Expo.  We had a free offshore fishing trip giveaway for anyone who wanted to sign up.  It was simple….fill out the form, we’ll send you some emails and somebody’s going offshore fishing!

Well today our three winners and a guest fished aboard the Wrecker with Captain Jeremy Blunt and Mate Brian Behe.  Tim Saburn, Rob Saburn, Laura Statts, RJ Davis, Rich Klein and Quentin Mcaffe boarded the Wrecker at 5 AM this morning and ventured offshore for a terrific day of Tuna fishing and camaraderie.  The crew caught a total of 9 Yellowfin and some nice Dolphin in 40-80 fathoms in the Baltimore canyon, and had a terrific time!

We’ll be at some of the same shows this offseason so stop by the Fish in OC booth and maybe you’re in this photo next year.


Captain Rob Skillman on the Moore Bills was high hook for the day with 7 nice Yellowfins from between 40-50 fathoms in the Poor Man’s canyon.  It seems the bite was better there than the Baltimore by a little bit.


The Marli with Captain Mark Hoos and mate Mark Stephens ventured out to the Baltimore today where the bite for Tuna was a little off, but the bite for Dolphin was obviously on!  Captain Mark put Adam Patisall and crew on this bunch of really nice Dolphin in 80 fathoms of the Baltimore and all were caught on Ballyhoo.


The Boss Hogg out of Sunset Marina had a good day in the Washington canyon.  The crew hooked into two Yellowfin, several nice Dolphin and a White Marlin release in 80 fathoms on spreader bars and trackers.


On the inshore front Captain John Prather on the Ocean City Guide Service had one of those trips that goes well beyond how good the fishing was.  Captain John hosted a group of individuals today that will remember this trip for the rest of their lives.  Yeah, they caught some keeper Flounder…that’s what John does….but they smiled bigger and brighter catching those Flounder than most of us do for the really meaningful things in life.  But now that I think about it, catching a Flounder is one of the really meaningful things in life…as long as it’s with the one’s that you love.

Congratulations to Captain John and crew…on your Flounder….and your smiles!
