    Chesapeake Bay Fishing Report – July 14th, 2017
    It’s a hot one out there today, eh? Yeah it is! Despite the heat, there has been great fishing all over the bay this past week. Lots of multi-species catches and limiting out in 2 hours or less! With Summer in full swing we’ve been thinking about how we can cool off and at the same time, stay as sweet as ever 🙂 well, we’ve figured that out! Anglers Snowball Shack will be opening sometime...

    Chesapeake Bay Fishing Report Rockfish Fishing from the bank or shore this past week has been pretty good. Most of the good shore fishing is north of the Bay Bridge. We’ve seen plenty of pods of dolphin in the Bay this past week and they’ve been pushing bait and fish north of the bridge. Best times to go out are early morning and later in the evening especially with an incoming or outgoing tide. Best baits over the last week have been soft shell crab and cut bunker (alewife). If you’re fishing after midnight be sure to not keep any...

    Chesapeake Bay Fishing Report Well folks, the trophy season was officially over yesterday and with the new season upon us, many have an optimistic outlook for the next few weeks. Size limits have changed from 1 fish over 35″ per person to 2 fish per person over 20″ with 1 keeper allowed over 28″. All the talk during trophy season was that the keepers were hard to come by but many anglers were catching rockfish in the 20″-32″ range. Looking at the 10 day forecast we have a string of beautiful days ahead with some hot weather over the next couple...

    Chesapeake Bay Fishing Report This past week has been a tough week on the bay due to weather. With small craft advisories and windy/rainy weather in the forecast, this weekend isn’t looking much better. If we look at the extended forecast, it looks a bit better into next week so keep your heads up! We’re nearing the end of trophy season and with the better weather coming, we’re thinking this week will be a decent one for those targeting trophy rockfish.

We’ll also cover the remaining White Perch run as well as the Shad run going on in the area. We’ve had quite a few warm days over the last few weeks, which is quite nice. That has water temps creeping into the mid to upper 50s and has the fish in active feeding moods.

    Last Week of “Winter” Fishing in the Chesapeake Bay area! We’ve almost made it through this very mild winter and Mother Nature decided to drop some last minute cold/snow/wet nastiness. Thanks so much Momma Nature! For those of us who are braving the elements, there are plenty of fish to be caught in the Chesapeake Bay. In the last couple weeks we’ve seen the Yellow Perch spawn come and go as well as the White Perch start to make their run at it.

Hunters are wrapping up their seasons, and anglers are just getting ready for theirs. Fortunately for anglers in Maryland, the Maryland Department of Natural Resources has been working with Trout production facilities to stock the put and take trout management waters all over the state. This has given anglers nice trout fishing opportunities as part of the pre-season stocking program.

With the mild winter, we’ve seen water temps hovering in the low to mid 40s which has provided anglers with some pretty decent opportunities to get out and shake off the winter blues and catch some nice fish.

When the weather has cooperated, there have been plenty of fish to catch. We are seeing plenty of Yellow Perch, Pickerel, Crappie and even some Rockfish in 40-45º water at varying depths. In the Chesapeake Bay you’re going to find fish in deeper holes on hard/shell bottom and in/around structure. In the surrounding Rivers you’re going to find them in/around structure and near stream mouths in 2-10′ of water. Here is a video of...

Before the wind picked up this past week there was some good fishing going on in the shallow areas of the tidal rivers because of the full moon high tides.

Time to break out your top water, sub surface, and metal jigs for light tackle fishing and grab your trolling gear for the big stripers that will be making their way back in the bay.

    It’s been a great season so far and it will only get better. The light tackle bite in the upper part of the bay has been picking up since we are having lower temperatures at night. You can find breaking fish during the early hours of the morning and evenings and also during tide changes in the mouth of the rivers as bait is moving out and in to the rivers. The mouth of the Patapsco river, Magothy river, Love Point, and Severn River are good spots to check out during the morning and evening hours the key is to...

It’s been a phenomenal late summer bite and now that we are coming off of a full moon, I expect it’s only going to get better. The majority of quality stripers (aka overs) are still north of the bridge and at this point I don’t know when they are going to venture south.

Trolling, live lining, jigging, chumming, top water, breakers, you name it, it’s been productive from the mouth of the Chop Tank all the way up to the north end of the Bay around Hart Miller Island.

With plenty of big stripers hanging around and some bluefish starting to show up its bound to be a July for the record books. The general theory of fish above the bridge from the Bay Bridge to seven-foot knoll is still holding true in regards to big stripers in the upper 30” range. Trolling, jigging, chumming, and live lining have all been plenty sufficient means to keeping a rod bent and fishermen busy. As far as a troll bite goes, tsunami tandems and 5 and...

As far as a troll bite tandems and umbrellas mainly chartreuse and white along with pulling surgical hoses in rock hall red which have been yielding fewer but bigger fish.

Trolling, jigging, and chumming have all been the keys to success here on the home front putting numerous keepers “over the rail and under the lid”.

The middle part of the bay seems to be on fire with keeper Rockfish over the last week and a half. Trolling, light tackle jigging, and chumming have been a recipe for heavy coolers and piles of fillets.

The good news about relatively cold water around 60-degree water temperatures is stripers absolutely love it and though most of the big fish have moved south pushing out of the bay, we are still finding fish upwards of 35 to 36 inches.

    Howdy guys and gals. I apologize for the absence of a fishing report this past week. Fortunately, I’ve been busy on the water playing with some white perch and post spawn yellows. With the weather patterns we have had, it has produced a fairly early spawning run on the yellow perch. Areas such as Tuckahoe Creek, the Choptank River, Corsica, and the upper reaches of the Chester have produced an earlier than expected spawning run with high tides and water temperatures in the mid-50’s over a very short period of time. The good news, is that this was probably one...

The hot places to catch yellows have been at Martinek State Park, Tuckahoe and the head waters of most of the major rivers. Finding the deep holes that hold yellow perch mean you’re going to have a fun day on your hands. People jig those deep holes using shad darts tipped with a minnow, grass shrimp or Berkley’s gulp alive 1 inch minnow.

    September 2014 Fishing Report Rockfish Fish are beginning to move into the shallow waters of the rivers and creeks. The tope water bite has really begun to pick up in the early morning and later evening using smack-it plugs, atom poppers and spook poppers. Putting a deceiver with a 18” leader from the rear of the lure sometimes entices the fish to strike the sub-surface lure and looks more like “schooling fish”. Chumming has really started to pick up big time and there are some very nice fish being caught. Fresh alewife on a 4/0 36” leadered hook using a...
