Schoolies for Some Schoolies

Schoolies for Some Schoolies

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 sun came out in full force this afternoon, but the wind came along with it.  Northeast winds had it cool most of the day and the bay was pretty choppy when the wind was against the tide.  The ocean was closed again once again today because of the wind, but it may lay down enough tomorrow to get out.  The temperatures are supposed to rise starting tomorrow and reach the upper 80s by next week so I’m sure anglers are going to be chomping at the bit to get out and catch some fish.

Inshore fishing was the only thing going on today with the windy conditions and despite it being a little chilly this am and a little choppy on the bay there was some decent fishing going on.   Captain Jeff Coats of Pitboss Fishing had some recently graduated “schoolies” on board today and had some great luck fishing the route 50 bridge.  Captain Jeff put Bryce Slusser, Colton Morgan and Josh Auxer on 15 “schoolie” rockfish, a nice bluefish and even a nice puppy drum on Roy Rigs.  All of the fish were released.

Captain Jason Mumford of Lucky Break Charters had a two trip this afternoon and had some good fishing in short time.  Captain Jason put his crew on 10 throwback flounder and this 19″ keeper on a live minnow in the south bay.


Matt Ellis of the Ocean City Fishing Community got a great shot while he was doing some “bird watching”.  He caught this shot of Big Bird Cropper while he was catching some nice bluefish at the route 50 bridge.


OC Sharkhunters Nick Ager and Steven Mogel landed this absolute monster southern ray in the Assateague surf last weekend.

Unfortunately the weatherman nailed it today.  It was absolutely miserable almost all day….still is.  High winds and rain had the ocean closed for business and I know of only one or two boats that even fished… READ MORE
