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.

This time the report comes in from my buddy Nick Denny who fished the Nanticoke with two good friends of mine, Chris Tilghman and Mike Tuel. The trio had a good day with the white perch and also caught several small rockfish and a couple of catfish. It’s early in the fishing season, so just bending a rod is awesome…..and catching some good eating fish is a real bonus.
