What it’s All About!

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 another rough one offshore today.  The wind did subside down to 10-15 knots but it blew out of the same NE direction so it stayed rough off the beach.  Sea conditions were 4-6 feet with an average of only five seconds between peaks which is uncomfortable to say the least.  Only one boat that I know of even left the inlet.  Captain Jeremy Blunt on the Wrecker took a half day shark fishing trip and had a good day with them releasing 8.

The forecast calls for it to lay down even more tomorrow and in the coming days, so the offshore fleet will be back at it again. Zero boats fished today in the Ocean City Marlin Club Labor Day White Marlin Tournament so tomorrow should see some changes to the leaderboard with all 30 boats scheduled to get their last day in.

I saw a post on FB from my good friend and Fish in OC inshore charter boat Captain John Prather on Ocean City Guide Service that was really cool.  Despite the weather conditions there were a ton of boats on the bay today taking advantage of what fishing is all about….spending time with your family and friends.  It’s not always about catching a white marlin or a box full of flounder, sometimes all that matters is that you go fishing and have a good time with the people that you care about.  Take the time to pass the important stuff on to your kids, and soon enough we’ll have a generation of junior anglers that will gladly put the Minecraft and Mario on hold to go fishing.  I sometimes find it difficult to keep this in mind myself, but I’m trying as my son gets older.  Million dollar marlin, state record wahoo, first place in your flounder tournament…..that’s all terrific stuff, but a 3 inch sea robin on a 3 foot fishing rod for a 3 year old….now that’s what it’s all about!
