The Atlantic Ocean provides some of the best fishing in the world, with a large concentration of prize fishing just off the shore of Ocean City, MD. Ocean City also boasts some of the best fishing on the East Coast. What’s more, the Restless Lady carries the knowledge, experience, and skills to position you in the ideal spots for catching everything from Tuna to Shark to Marlin. Between the vibrant fishing season and the Marlin, Tuna and Shark Tournaments held throughout the year, the Restless Lady has Got ‘Em On!
The fishing season typically begins in May, with inshore bottom fishing and wreck fishing. Just a short ride on the Restless Lady, the wrecks and bottom structures that we fish are just 8 to 15 miles off of the Ocean City shoreline. Black Sea Bass and Tautog are a few of the catches you can expect during the spring fishing months here in Ocean City. As May winds down, we start casting inshore shark fishing nets, which typically yields Mako Sharks, Thresher Sharks, and Tiger Sharks. As the water warms up to the high 50s, we also start to see more sharks as a result of an increase in Bluefish and Mackerel activity (the preferred Mako diet). This is when the fun really begins!
The offshore waters also becomes alive in late spring, as eddies of warm water from the Gulf Stream make their way inshore near the canyons. The canyons are 60 to 70 miles from the Ocean City Inlet and mark the area of the ocean floor where the ocean drops off very quickly, from 600 feet to 2000 feet. The Restless Lady crew is overly familiar with the canyons off our coastline, having spent countless hours fishing the canyons. We encourage our patrons to capitalize on this time, as the fishing starts to get into full swing!Read More
