Got the Kids in the Mix

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.

Today’s action offshore was what I like to call “so-so”.  There were tuna caught, but it wasn’t stellar.  There were Dolphin caught, but it wasn’t epic.  There were a few White Marlin caught, but it wasn’t remarkable… was all “so-so”.

There were a number of fish caught on a number of different boats fishing spots including the Hot Dog, the Hambone, the Poor Man’s canyon and the Baltimore canyon.

You’ve got to love it when the kids get involved!  The Spring Mix II with Captain Chris Watkowski and Mate Marshall Freng had a good day catching three Yellowfin at the Hot Dog and then adding five nice Dolphin in the Baltimore canyon.  Here are Ayrton Pryor and Gavin Carmody with a nice gaffer from the trip.


Captain Luke Blume on the White Lightning out of Sunset Marina had one Bluefin, two Yellowfin and two Dolphin on today’s trip.


The Boss Hogg also fishing out of Sunset Marina gave the Tuna a break today, but they but the smack down on 36 Dolphin, 15 Tilefish and 9 nice Sea Bass from the Poor Man’s canyon.


It never gets old to report that the inshore fishing is out of this world for Flounder!  Anglers are having great luck with the Flounder in the east channel north of the Rt 50 bridge, the south side of the south jetty and behind Assateague Island.  You can use live minnows, shiners, even mullet if you want….but all you need is Gulp 4″ Swimming Mullet in white….that’s it!

Captain John Prather on the Ocean City Guide Service out of the Ocean City Fishing Center had a great day with the Flounder catching 7 keepers on his afternoon trip.


Anglers that were fishing the Ocean City inlet were also treated to an unusual guest this afternoon.  There was a pretty decent sized Hammerhead shark spotted by several anglers fishing the inlet and back bays, and Captain John on OC Guide Service was close enough to capture a video of the fish cruising the inlet.  Here’s a photo of the Hammerhead next to the OC Guide Service…
