Today was an exciting day at the Ocean City Fishing Center. A few of our boats went fishing today including some of our private boats. Our bay fishing headboat the “Bay Bee” with Captain Cale Layton had a successful morning trip and returned with 2 keeper flounder and reported 12 throwbacks. Inshore wreck and reef fishing has really picked up as the wind has calmed down and Captain Monty Hawkins on the “Morning Star” has customers that report an average of 15 fish/person/trip. The crew is primarily catching sea bass but may have a few flounder or tog. The most impressive catch today was off of the private boat the “No Limits” which returned with a 440 pound 96″ thresher shark(see photo below).
Congrats to the crew on the “No Limits”! The fishing has really started to pick up and we are searching for anglers. Remember that fishing trips make great fathers day and graduation presents!
