Chesapeake Bay Fishing Report – February 1st, 2017

Chesapeake Bay Fishing Report Anglers Sport Center

Mid Winter Chesapeake Bay Fishing Report The weather so far this year has been pretty up and down and has been much warmer than in year’s past. 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. We’ve heard pretty good reports coming from several of our staff that the winter Perch bite is on and strong! Pickerel have also been very active in/around structure in the creeks and rivers off the main bay. The bite has been so good over the last couple weeks that many have asked us if the Perch spawn is on but we think that it may just be happening in stages depending on your location and should really take place in the next several weeks. Perch As far as the Perch fishing goes, we’ve seen great things coming out of the Western bay area, specifically in the Magothy, Severn and South Rivers in deeper holes ranging from 5-20′ of water looking for that hard bottom or subsurface structure. Other hot spots in the Eastern Bay area are the Wye, Miles and Chester rivers in that 5-20′ range. Further south we’re seeing good fish being caught in the Honga and Nanticoke rivers. Being that the water temps are in the low 40º range right now, you’re looking to fish slow, and on/near the bottom. Popular rigs are the float & shad dart combo tipped with

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
