The Overnighter That Wasn’t and OCMC Small Boat Results

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.

Last night’s forecast on the beach called for a likely chance of severe thunderstorms with heavy downpours, flash flooding, high winds and lightning….and the weather that happens  on the beach eventually happens offshore so the outlook for offshore fishing last night and today was bleak.  Today’s forecast for 25+ knots came to fruition so all of the offshore charters stayed at the dock.

The Wrecker out of the Ocean City Fishing Center with Captain Jeremy Blunt and Mate Brian Behe had an overnighter scheduled for last night into today, but cut that trip short at about 9 PM when forecast and conditions made the decision easy to head home.  Mate Brian Behe said about the decision,”since I’ve never been on a boat that was lighting proof, we decided to terminate the overnight portion of our trip.”

Before that decision was made however, the Wrecker had one heck of an evening trip!!  Captain Jeremy was able to put his crew on a nice 40# Yellowfin, some gaffer Dolphin, an acrobatic Blue Marlin and a Sailfish!  That’s good stuff!


After last night’s downpours, the Flounder fishing was a little tough today as well.  High winds and dirty water conditions had most anglers leaving the net in the rod holder.

Captain John Prather on the Ocean City Guide Service has something that will keep sportsmen enthused even when Floundering isn’t all that.  Captain John offers bow fishing trips for sting rays that are out of this world exciting and the bay and inshore waters are full of them right now.


The Ocean City Marlin Club Small Boat Tournament is in the books.  Because of the offshore weather forecast, every boat entered in the offshore division fished Saturday, but we did have some boats fish the inshore division and hit the scales Sunday as well.


Here are the final results.
