Deep Sea Fishing in Ocean City

If you’re looking for an offshore adventure on the East Coast, Ocean City is the place for you. The underwater honey holes are closer here than anywhere else, attracting a range of big game creatures you won’t believe. After all, it is the “White Marlin Capital of the World.” Hop aboard an Ocean City deep sea fishing charter and you can discover it all.
 
It’s not all Marlin here, mind you – although Blue and White Marlin do hog the limelight when the season hits. Your first port of call will be the “Bass Grounds” just 12 miles out, where monster Sharks, including Hammerhead, Dusky, Blacktip, Sandbar, Tiger, and Bull varieties hunt. 
 
Then, you’ll troll the open water with the “Jackspot” 20 miles offshore providing plenty of Mahi Mahi, Wahoo, and Yellowfin, Blackfin, Bigeye, and Bluefin Tuna, for a real fishing frenzy. From there, it just gets better, with the Marlin grounds opening up, and the underwater canyons giving you the chance to try deep dropping. Tilefish, Swordfish, and many more delicious creatures are all available. 
 
As you’ll need to travel a fair distance to reach the sweet spots, you’ll want to spend at least a full day fishing. Trips start from 8 hours, going all the way up to multiple days on the water. These serious trips are reserved for experienced anglers who are looking to land a trophy catch. 

Rules and Regulations

Most Ocean City deep sea fishing charters come with licenses included for all on board, so that’s one less thing to worry about. You’ll also be glad to know that all the big game creatures are available to target year-round, with limits on the size and number you can take back to shore.

Just make sure you’re going out when the tide is in and the bay water is clear, or go out a bit and catch stripers.

First timers would love this place to fish. Most Captain's are on one mission. For you to have fun. Never had a bad experience in OC Maryland. Some better than others but always great.

Check the weather forecast and plan ahead! We happened to book on a very windy and cold day that was much colder than the annual average for this time of year (second week of May).

Listen to the Captain, if he does not think it makes sense to go out, reschedule. We were lucky, and had a nice weather day.

Take trip for sea bass easy first time catch, good eating, lots of fun. Don't judge the trip by the size of the boat but the history of the captain.
