Good Inshore Action

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.

Hurricane Maria is off of our coast to the south and will be moving by over the next 24 hours or so and she’s close enough to be pushing some pretty good wave activity in this direction.  The ocean was too rough to get into today and looks to be closed for at least another couple of days so the offshore guys will have to wait to see if the tuna are still in the canyons and the party boat fleet will have to wait to get on the flounder.

Inshore the weather wasn’t great, but it wasn’t terrible.  We had a little wind out of the northeast and some misty rain at times, but it was tolerable and the bay and inlet were actually fishable.  Captain John Prather of Ocean City Guide Service had old school OC locals Jim Jarman from Berlin and John Lynch from South Point on board with guests today and they slayed the sheepshead in the inlet.  The crew used sand fleas to put nine nice sheep in the box this afternoon.

Captain Jason Mumford of Lucky Break Charters was on the bay today too and had some success flounder fishing. Captain Jason put this angler on a nice flattie while fishing the bay north of the route 50 bridge.

Speaking of inshore action, if you’re looking for a fun format for an inshore fishing tournament check out our first ever Ocean City Inshore Classic.  Fish in OC and Hooked on OC are teaming forces to bring you a 32 hour overnight fishing tournament on October 14 and 15 with rockfish, flounder, tautog and open categories.  It’s just $75 for boat and Captain $50 for each additional angler.  You can see some of the details and rules here……
