    Some good inshore Shark fishing is just off the coast of Ocean City. Come enjoy 4 hours of drifting on the ocean fishing for the many Shark species that frequent the area's inshore waters. There's nothing like putting the chum bag in the water and seeing what it brings to the boat. Along with sharks, it's always interesting to see what else might show up. These trips are subject to weather. Water and sodas are included.
