Message from Captain John Prather -- I will like to welcome everyone to ocean city guide service web page. We are excited to share with you that we have purchased a completely refitted 29 foot SeaVee. This is one of the most versatile fishing platforms in its size class. Our family friendly fishing atomosphere has not changed, we will still be offering two and four hour bay trips that many of you love. With the new boat comes many more fishing opportunities and we are now available to catch almost anything that swims.

  • I booked captain John for a stingray bow fishing trip. Nothing but good things to say, Capt. John and crew were very top notch and professional. He defiantly put us on the rays all day long, not more than a ten minute period without seeing rays, to bad we couldn’t do our part of hitting them, although we still boated 10 rays. Would defiantly recommend him to anyone looking to experience bow fishing stingrays.

    Kurt N,
  • Great experience. John worked very hard to get us on some fish and was very successful considering the number of boats all fishing the same area. We had several first timers and they had a blast! I will definately be using him again! Thanks.

    Barry Kepner,
  • I did a half day of inlet and bay fishing and couldnt have been happier with my choice. Everything was first rate, from top to bottom. Managed to catch a wide variety of fish and wouldnt hesitate to book a charter again! Capt. Prather and Mate Tyler were on their game for sure!

    Colin Boyle,
  • Had a great time with Capt. John. Caught some Togs and watched a Boardwalk Train burn. A very eventful and fun experience! I’m looking forward to the next trip!

    Bruce,
  • A big THANK YOU to Captain John & First Mate Riley. A 70 pound Sothern Ray was like a dream come true. Mark & I can mark one off our bucket list. Hope to see you again in June of next year to do this again!!!! Mark & Becky

    Mark & Becky Matheny,
  • Captain John, Jane and I had a great trip on Monday. You made Jane feel very safe. As we all know she is a land lover. You worked hard on trying to get us on fish…. but as we all know that’s not what the trip is all about. Thank you for your time……… I will be calling you in the fall for rock fishing!!! Nick

Had an AWESOME time fishing with Captain John Prather! We caught a ton of fish and were given great tips by both the captain and first mate Austin! Worth every penny spent and can not wait to come back and go again with Captain John and his team. Would also highly recommend you take the fish you catch to the marina restaurant Mickey Fins where they will cook what you catch. Best dinner we had all vacation, very delicious!
