OCMC Small Boat Tournament Day 1 and Tiles on the Hogg

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.

The Tuna fishing in the offshore canyons was a little slower than yesterday’s stellar fishing, but boats still found the Yellowfin and some Dolphin.  Yesterday’s hot spot, the Triple 000s in the Washington canyon was far from hot today.  Conditions were just a little too calm today….combine that with a ton of boat traffic and the fish get pushed down and not as active.

The Boss Hogg out of Sunset Marina had a great day today with Tuna, Dolphin, Sea Bass and Tilefish.  A strange combination of species to some, but these guys know how to deep drop to the bottom out there where the large Sea Bass and Blueline Tile live.  They had 7 Yellowfin, Dolphin, 35 Sea Bass and 29 Tilefish in 40 fathoms of the Poor Man’s canyon.

Captain Luke Blume on the White Lightning out of Sunset Marina had a decent day with the Tunas as well.  The White Lightning had 4 nice Yellowfin and Dolphin.

My friend Austin Ensor continues to have a great fishing season on board the Materix II.  Austin reports an awesome overnight trip,

“Fished last night into today.
Started out at the tip of poormans sharked overnight. Had thousands of mackeral around the boat all night and caught over 30 on jigs. Our drift pushed us inshore and with our fresh bait we were able to release a blue shark and kill a #160 mako. Picked up the shark gear at 0500 and started on the troll. Picked up 2 mahi and a #45 tuna before 9am. Then went 1 for 2 on white marlin bites. Packed up and headed home at noon. Great conditions and at one point in the night we had flying fish jumping into the drifting boat. Crazy night offshore.”
