Chesapeake Bay Fishing Report – September 21st, 2017

Chesapeake Bay Fishing Report Been a busy week in the shop this week! We’ve been getting ready for our big St. Croix event this Saturday from 5am-5pm. It’s going to be a good time! A very relevant seminar brought to you by the Legendary Charlie Ebersberger and our resident fish whisperer Alex Perez starts at noon. We’ll have free hats for anyone who buys a St. Croix rod and anyone who does will also be entered into a raffle to win one of seven very nice St. Croix rods! Lots of good times to be had! We’ve also been busy catching fish while we aren’t getting the shop in shape! Let’s get into that now… In the Upper Bay region we’ve seen the fall transition in full effect. Lots of breaking schools of fish, especially in the early morning. You’ll be able to catch these fish in a variety of ways. Jigging in the schools of breaking fish has been really good this past week. Some other techniques that have had success have been topwater with buzzbaits, Whopper Ploppers, wake baits and walk-the-dog baits like the Shimano Coltsniper. Focusing on the grass edges in the flats has been a good area to start. You’ll catch a mix of Rockfish, Largemouth and Smallmouth Bass in this area. Trolling the channel edges up north has also been doing well. Near the Port Deposit/Deer Creek area anglers have had success with smaller jigs (1/2oz. w/ a 6″ BKD in natural or chartreuse color),

Chesapeake Bay Fishing Report – September 15th, 2017

Chesapeake Bay Fishing Report Hope everyone had a great week! We’ve been busy planning our Fall Events & Seminars recently and the next one scheduled is our St. Croix event on September 23rd. We’re excited to have our St. Croix rep here to demo our St. Croix rods and answer any questions you may have. You’ll be able to get your hands on several different St. Croix rods and feel how they cast/handle so you can make the right choice for your style of fishing. Every St. Croix rod sale comes with a FREE St. Croix hat and you will automatically be entered into a raffle where we’ll be giving away 7 St. Croix rods to 7 lucky winners! Raffle is at 5pm so be sure you’re around the shop at that time! Now lets get into the Fishing Report! Rockfish With cooler air temps we’ve seen water temps dropping to a 76º average in the middle-upper bay area. This will have many Rockfish feeding in the shallows early and later in the evening. Look to use topwater baits like the Stutter Step, Badonk-A-Donk, or Coltsniper topwater baits. Some areas that have been good this past week have been Hacketts Point, Love Point (in 5′-7′ of water), Thomas Point Park and the Upper Severn River (north of Round Bay) in the evening. Chumming the area has also been really good this past week. Grab a chum log, Soft Crab or cut Alewife or both and head out to Love Point,

Chesapeake Bay Fishing Report – September 8th, 2017

The past week has been great for fishing in the Chesapeake Bay. Unfortunately our brothers and sisters in other parts of the country have seen some pretty serious weather and many are preparing for more to come soon. Our thoughts and prayers go out to the families in Texas, Florida and other areas where these hurricanes may possibly effect. We’ve had many of our friends and regular customers head down to those areas with boats and trailers to help out however they can and we are proud of that. Just goes to show you the american spirit is not dead and we’re always here to help out our fellow neighbors. Rockfish Over the last week the chum bite has been producing some good sized fish north of the bridge at Podickory Point and further north to Belvedere Shoals. There are reports of success in anywhere from 18 to 25 feet of water at the start of an incoming tide. Taking things south of the bridge, people have been doing well off Tolly Point in 23 to 28 feet of water.  Plus a good grade of fish off Dolly’s Lump in 25 feet of water. The bridge has had a good live-lining bite this week and some other good places to live-line have been Podickory, Love and Hacketts Point. Trollers up and down the Bay have been doing well by the channel edges with Clark spoons and Drone spoons on number 2 planers as well as Purple and Blue surgical hoses.

Chesapeake Bay Fishing Report – September 1st, 2017

Chesapeake Bay Fishing Report There was a noticeable crispness to the air this morning! As we move into September and this Labor Day weekend, we start to transition from Summer to Fall! This is our favorite season here at the shop. Pretty much everything gets great right before the winter hits. Hunting season starts today! We want to remind everyone to be safe, be respectful, and be prepared as you venture out into the great outdoors in search of whatever it is you’re searching for! Rockfish This is the time of year where topwater in the Bay is really good in many places. One of the more productive topwater areas is in the northern part of the Chesapeake Bay between Port Deposit and Deer Creek. Another great spot is on the channel edges in the Susquehanna Flats. Early morning is the best time to head out and target breaking fish using either a plug or a Smack-It. Moving further south in the bay near the mouth of the Patapsco River and that area we’ve found fish on topwater later in the day around the Francis Scott Key Bridge and North Point State Park. Even all the way up near the Inner Harbor and as far south as Gibson Island near the mouth of the Magothy River. Trolling these same areas shortly after sunrise has produced some decent keepers as well. We’re hearing that small bucktails with Otter Tail trailers or small spoons have been catching fish. Another good thing to

Chesapeake Bay Fishing Report – August 24th, 2017

Chesapeake Bay Fishing Report Our 2nd Annual White Perch Open was this past Sunday and it was a huge success. We had over 200 anglers fish in the tournament and the day couldn’t have been more perfect. The weather was amazing, the fried perch was delicious and beers were ice cold! Everyone seemed to have a great time and we’re already looking forward to next year! We can’t thank Podickory Point Yacht Club enough for their hospitality and how helpful their staff was. Congratulations again to all the winners, you guys beat out some tough competition! Rockfish Trolling for Rockfish has been good recently. Some areas to target in the northern part of the bay are the Southwest side of Pooles Island and the Northeast side of Hart-Miller Island. Moving further south in the bay areas like Love Point, Baltimore Light and the Bay Bridge have all been producing decent fish trolling red surgical tubes in 25′-35′ of water. Some anglers are finding some Blues mixed in so you may want to mix some spoons in your arsenal to keep them from shredding your baits. A little tip for better success rate is to troll in an East-West direction vs. North-South. Seems to help land more fish as of late. Moving further south in the bay around Thomas Point and Chesapeake Beach they’re catching a larger mix of Bluefish, Spanish Mackerel, and Rockfish but the Spanish Macks seem to be pretty prominent. Trolling drone spoons on size 1 or 2

Chesapeake Bay Fishing Report – August 17th, 2017

Weekly Chesapeake Bay Fishing Report What a week it has been! We’ve seen monster Black Drum being caught north of the Bay Bridge, Rockfish hitting topwater all over and the big White Perch Open is THIS SUNDAY!! Weather wise, we are looking perfect for the entire weekend and we’re super excited for the 2nd annual White Perch Open. Registration for the tournament/fish fry ends Friday, August 18th at 10pm and you can register for it here: White Perch Open. Rockfish Fishing for rockfish in the upper bay area this past week has been pretty good. Seems as if the most success came from Live-lining spot in a few key areas. The Bay Bridge pilings, Podickory and Love Point were all on fire this week. If you’re in shallower water, don’t worry about adding weight to your rig. If you’re in 25′ or deeper water, look to add an ounce or two to get down to the better class of fish. Chumming/chunking while fishing cut Alewife on the bottom did really well this week also. Some of the better spots this week were Hacketts, the mouth of the Eastern Bay and further south around Chesapeake Beach. Another great bait to use would be soft crab. If you’re not sure how to rig soft crab up, check out this video which shows you exactly how to do it! Trolling this week has been decent. Some of the deeper drop-off along the shipping channel have been producing a nicer class of fish trolling

Chesapeake Bay Fishing Report – August 11th, 2017

Chesapeake Bay Fishing Report This has been an active week fishing this week. The White Marlin Open is wrapping up in Ocean City and what a week it was! Currently Mike Donohue aboard the Griffin sits in 1st place with an 86lb White Marlin worth $2.6 million! Good luck to everyone fishing in today’s final day!   Rockfish Fishing in the middle bay area this past week has been good. Trolling in the area has produced some nice fish around the deeper drops with 1oz.-1.5oz. Hard Candy skirted jigs. The most productive fishing has been live-lining again this week. Anglers are having success around the Bay Bridge pilings drifting with weightless live Spot. Jigging the area has been pretty decent as well. The large concentration of fish we’ve been finding around the Swan Point/Rock Hall area has spread out now. We’re finding them mostly around Love Point, the Bay Bridge and around Podickory Point. Jigging chartreuse colored BKD’s around deep structure has been great this past week. Chumming has been especially good this past week around Hacketts Point. Bigger chunks of alewife fished on the bottom during a moving tide has really done well. Moving a little further south, anglers are limiting out pretty quickly in the mouth of the Eastern Bay specifically around The Hill. We’re hearing reports of both Chumming and Live-Lining working really well on a moving tide later in the evening in both of these locations. Bigger chunks of alewife and soft crab have done well

Chesapeake Bay Fishing Report – August 4th, 2017

Fishing the Chesapeake Bay and Surrounding Area. August is here and we’re excited because fish are biting nearly everywhere and the forecast is looking perfect to get out this weekend! Rockfish Fishing for Rockfish this past week has been great nearly everywhere. We’ve had great reports coming out of the northern bay area including the Susquehanna Flats, Patapsco River and North Point State Park. In the flats, anglers are having success early morning before the sun rises fishing topwater plugs. Once the sun is up, switch to jigging the ledges or live-lining Spot. Live lining has been doing really well lately. In the Patapsco River, the evening bite has been great fishing submerged structure with jigs or 4″ swim baits. In the middle bay area we’ve caught fish in a variety of places this past week. The Bay Bridge has been good early morning topwater plugging the eastern rock piles before the sun rises. Once the sun rose, we were having success jigging/live-lining the pilings on both the eastern side and western side of the bridge. If you’re trolling the area, be patient! Chartreuse colored 4″-6″ tandem rigs have been catching fish in 25′-35′ of water but you have to find them! Zig-zag over the ledges and get your baits down as deep as you can. Chumming/Chunking the Love Point area has been doing well the past week. Look for a transitioning tide early in the am or later in the evening to increase your chances of finding fish. Mid-day

Chesapeake Bay Fishing Report – July 28th, 2017

Chesapeake Bay Fishing Report Crazy week this past week with the tragic EF-2 tornado that ripped through Kent Island early Monday morning. Many of us live, work and play on the Island so it definitely touched many of us. We hope the families that were affected by this storm are OK and are getting the help they deserve. The efforts of the emergency teams helping get the community put back together haven’t gone unnoticed and we applaud the work they have done so far. It really is a comforting feeling knowing how quickly this community rises up to help one another and we are proud to be a part of it. Now it’s time for your weekly fishing report! Rockfish The majority of the fish seemed to have moved to the western side of the bay this past week. We’ve heard great reports coming from the mouth of the Magothy River, Podickory Point and Baltimore Light all producing nice fish while chumming or chunking. The best bait to use this past week has definitely been Soft Crab on a bottom rig. We’ve heard of plenty of 20″-22″ fish and some nicer 25″-30″ fish being caught this past week in these areas. Jigging the bay bridge with 1/2oz-3/4oz jigs with Chartreuse BKD trailers has been doing well during the day. Live-Lining the bay bridge has also been doing really well this past week. Topwater fishing with the Heddon Chug’n Spook near the rock piles under the Bay Bridge has been great

Chesapeake Bay Fishing Report – July 21st, 2017

Ohhh baby it’s HOT outside! It sure has been super hot out this past week! With temps on the rise, both fish and humans try to find ways to cool off. Fish tend to move deeper in the water column and we humans tend to eat snowballs from our brand new delicious snowball stand! If you haven’t yet, swing in this weekend and try either the Bloodworm Bomb, Bunker Butter or one of our other many delicious flavors. Rockfish Fishing up in the northern section of the Bay we’re seeing a slowing trend on the topwater bite that has been really good over the last few weeks in the Susquehanna flats area. This is mostly due to the heat and the fish moving deeper in the water column to stay cool. The key to this bite is moving water from the dam and getting out earlier before the sun rises. If you have good cold water from the dam and it’s nice and early, that bite will most likely still be there. If you’re not having any luck with topwater, try jigging with 1oz. jigs and some paddle tails around the rocks. Another great method would be to use cut bait like Alewife and get a nice mixture of either Rockfish or Channel Cats in/around Port Deposit and the edges of the flats. Moving a little further south near the mouth of the Patapsco/Swan Point you’ll want to be fishing deeper water as well. Most people are having success in
