Weekend fishing days for the Fish in OC fleet are booking up quick as the season heats up.  Some boats don’t have a weekend date available for the rest of the season, which makes booking a day like today a smart idea.  Not only are weekdays open dates for some of the charter boats, but they are also less crowded with private boats which can make your chances of catching that much better.  There were only a few of our boats fishing today, but they did well.

Captain John Prather on the Ocean City Guide Service fishing out of The Ocean City Fishing Center has been fishing the inshore wrecks for flounder on some of his trips lately because the bay fishing has slowed down just a bit.  Today he whacked them on a wreck boxing 10 keeper flounder and releasing another 20 in three hours.  Here is Captain John’s awesome day and a shot of the catch just about to get cleaned.

The offshore fishing has turned to chunking for those boats that are interested in putting meat in the boat, but many others are gearing up for the marlin tournaments that are going to be taking place in just a few weeks.

The Moore Bills with Captain Rob Skillman and mate Steve Moore reports a great day on the water for the Don Pyle crew today.  It started in the Poorman’s Canyon working some poly balls over for mahi first thing in the morning. They ended up with 15 mahi total and then they started trolling to the north and ended the day with 4 out of 8 white marlin bites. Overall a great start to their white marlin season.


The My Cin with Captain Dave Black has been doing well with the yellowfin tuna lately.  Here is a nice yellowfin caught on the My Cin after a chunking trip to the Hot Dog lump.

Captain Joe Drosey on board Rhonda’s Osprey out of Sunset Marina had a good day on the chunk today boxing five out of 15 yellowfin tuna.

My good buddy Matt Krall of the Kralldaddies had a great time on his first offshore fishing trip yesterday.  Matt landed a beautiful 38 pound mahi on a naked ballyhoo in the Baltimore Canyon while fishing with his buddies Jake Lathroum and Riley Phillips.
