Chesapeake Bay Fishing Report – February 20th, 2017

Chesapeake Bay Fishing Report – February 20th, 2017 February is typically a month where things are slow going in the outdoor world. 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. If you want to know the complete stocking schedule you can find that info here. For those braving the elements, fishing the past couple weeks has been pretty decent. We’ve had good reports that the Yellows have been biting as well as the White Perch and the Pickerel bite is still going strong. Yellow Perch Yellow Perch have been going strong the past couple weeks in the rivers and creeks of the tidal Chesapeake Bay. Anglers on the Western shore of the Chesapeake Bay have been finding success in the backs of rivers such as the Magothy, Severn and the South River. On the eastern shore, places such as Millsboro, Tuckahoe Creek and Wye River have been hot for Yellow Perch. With water temps in the mid to low 40s we aren’t looking at a full blown spawn quite yet but we’re close. We believe the spawn is happening in stages all across the bay. What are we using to catch these Perch? You can never go wrong with a few hot skirt

Chesapeake Bay Fishing Report – 12/30/16

Chesapeake Bay Fishing Report from Anglers Sport Center

Chesapeake Bay Fishing Report for December 31st, 2016 Happy New Year’s Eve! Fishing the Chesapeake Bay over the last few weeks has been pretty good overall. 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 Pro Staffer Alex Perez and Captain James Avedon talking about their success over the last couple weeks:   As is with most types of fishing in the winter the key here is to SLOW DOWN. Fish are prepping for the winter and with colder water temps, they are not going to be as aggressive as they are in the spring/summer/fall but they are still going to eat! Yellow Perch You are going to find Yellow Perch in various parts of the Chesapeake Bay as well as the rivers leading into it. In the Bay, you want to target deeper holes with hard/shell bottom. In the Rivers, you want to target them in/around structure in anywhere from 2-12′ of water. Yellow Perch don’t migrate so they are here year round for you to enjoy! To catch them, try using a 1/16th size Min-O-Spoon made by Johnson. Tip the lure with either
