The MidAtlantic Day 3

The MidAtlantic Day 3

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.

At the beginning of the week when boats were making plans on which of the three days out of five they would fish for this week’s 26th Annual MidAtlantic Tournament Wednesday wasn’t on many lists.  The forecast was calling for Wednesday to have the roughest conditions of the five available fishing days so most game plans included some combination of Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday.  There are still 267 fishing days left so the next two days should be busy with an average of over 130 boats per day left to hit the water.  A few boats did still decide to fish in today’s “sporty” conditions and here’s what we saw at the scales.


Five boats fished out of Ocean City and only one boat fished out of Cape May and though there were some billfish released, nothing was brought in for weight at either scale so the standings are the same after three days of fishing for the MidAtlantic Tournament.

Away from the tournament the ocean going party boat fleet had some good fishing over ocean structure today.  Captain Chris Mizurak of the Anlger had a nice day putting customers on some keeper flounder and some big sea bass.

Captain Monty Hawkins of the Morning Star reported that they are always nicking a few and today was no different for this family that had some keeper flounder and some nice sea bass for the cooler.
