The Seas Were Calm and the Fish Were Biting

The Seas Were Calm and the Fish Were Biting

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.

It was a beautiful day both on land and on the water.  It was mostly sunny, the winds were light and it was unseasonably warm.  There were lots of anglers out on the bay and there were some boats offshore in the canyons taking advantage of the gorgeous fall conditions.

Jim Rowe and his crew boxed a limit of yellowfin tuna (18) on the charter boat MARLI with Captain Mark Hoos and mate Mark Stephens.  The feisty Tunas were all caught trolling on ballyhoo’s and spreader bars.


Captain Brandon Speilman on the Reel Direct out of the Ocean City Fishing Center was out in the Baltimore Canyon today and returned with some meat for the freezer as well.  Reel Direct had two yellowfin tuna and four mahi for the fish cleaners this afternoon.


The flounder fishing in the bay right now is nothing short of crazy good.  The water isn’t the cleanest, but it hasn’t seemed to impact what has been some awesome fishing.  Captain John Prather on Ocean City Guide Service was at it again today putting this lucky angler on his limit of four keeper flounder on squid and strip baits north of the route 50 bridge.
