Stud Sea Bass and November Yellowfins

Stud Sea Bass and November Yellowfins

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.

After a few days of inactivity the fishing scene in Ocean City busted loose again today with anglers taking advantage of the nice weather.  The past few days most folks have stayed at the dock because of the cold nighttime temperatures and the stiff breeze during the day.  Today started off chilly, but warmed nicely by late morning and there was little or no wind to speak of.  That meant that anglers were fishing the bay, the local party boat fleet was back at the sea bass and one boat even got offshore to see what was up.

The local party boats are still running strong weather permitting and the sea bass fishing is nothing short of stellar.  Captain Monty Hawkins on the Morning Star reported lots of sea bass limits today, some bluefish limits and some real pretty triggerfish.  Captain Monty politely asked mate Wes Pollitt to return tag and release his biggest sea bass of the day, to which Wes promptly dropped the stank face and released the beauty to the sea.  Wes said his fish was a solid 2″+ fish and the pool winner was a big 19.5″ knot head.

Captain Chris Mizurak of the Angler reported good sea bass fishing today as well with several limits and some really nice fish.

I got a text from my shoulder season offshore boys the Ensors today who reported a decent day offshore aboard the Husevo.  Josh Ensor sent me a text this morning with a report of yellowfins and Austin Ensor confirmed this afternoon with a text and a pic.  Two for three yellowfin tuna in November is pretty awesome!


Bear from the Oceanic Pier submitted a photo of John who was at it again on the route 50 bridge.  John captured this keeper rockfish on a Zoom artificial bait.
