But Hey Sportfishing - Ocean City

But Hey Sportfishing spends their summers fishing out of Ocean City, MD, commonly known as “White Marlin Capital of the World”. Enjoy a day fishing for the area’s top gamefish aboard a safe, reliable boat owned and operated by Captain Toby Williamson. He has well over 20 years in the charter industry and knows how to get a fish in your hands and a smile on your face.

What you target will depend on the trip you book. Half days target inshore and nearshore favorites like Flounder, Bluefish, Black Seabass, and Cobia. These are great for families and groups who don’t want to spend their entire day at sea. You will be fishing close to the shore, so this is a great option for those who suffer from seasickness.

If you want more of an adventure, head offshore in search of the incredible Marlin bite that gave Ocean City its name. Along with the White Marlin, you can battle Blue Marlin, Mahi Mahi, Wahoo, and Yellowfin Tuna. These fish will put even the most experienced anglers to the test!

Enjoy reeling in all these and more aboard the “But Hey.” This 34’ Island Boat Works sportfisherman is a classic piece of Outer Banks sportfishing design. She was completely restored in 2017 and sports a head for your comfort and a flybridge to take in the view on the way to the fishing grounds.

Once you get there, the boat’s GPS and fishfinder will track down your chosen species and her outriggers and downriggers will bring all fish into reach. You will have a choice of light and heavy tackle, with the option to troll, bottom fish, spin, and jig your way to some incredible catches.

Everything you need for the fishing itself is ready and waiting onboard. Just bring your food, drinks, friends, and family and head out to catch some fish!
