Fall Chesapeake Bay Fishing Report

Look to use bloodworms, minnows, or nightcrawlers on a bottom rig.


November Chesapeake Bay Fishing Report

November 24th, 2014


The colder weather has created a great mix of fishing for the last three weeks of the season. Larger Trophy size Rock have been making their way up the Bay while our local fish have been schooling up and feeding having for the winter months.

Trolling larger parachutes in tandem or behind an umbrella in deeper water off the channel edges has been the best bet for picking up larger Rock. On the channel edges anglers are also pulling smaller bucktail tandem rigs, spoons, and swim shads for fish anywhere from 20-35”.

Chumming has been slower but recent reports of nice schools of Rock around Podicory and Thomas Pt. should only get better. Look to set up in 25-35’ of water and fish fresh alewife on the bottom for best success.

Jigging has also been a good bet around the Bay Bridge. Look to jig bass assassins, sting silvers, or bucktails around the eastern and western rock piles. Jigging live minnows off the bottom is always a good bet this time of year.

White Perch

Look to jig up some nice winter perch around the Bay Bridge pilings or anywhere else you can find deep structure. Look to use bloodworms, minnows, or nightcrawlers on a bottom rig.


The cold weather has these guys swarming the creeks. Find a structure (fallen trees, docks, etc.) and fish live minnows, spoons, or spinners on a slow retrieve for best success.
