Many great trips over the last month. I’m still patiently waiting for fish to adjust back to the south. Would love to be back down to Solomons or Buzz’s Marina. Right now fish are centered north of the Bay Bridge but fish are south of the bridge also. Thomas Point, Hackett’s Point and Tolly Point have been holding some fish. Stripers have been suspended over 20-40′ of water in several areas north of the bay bridge. Bridge pilings have been on fire at times with great fish and cold at other times. Working pilings has certainly produced some great fish over the last month.
Silver sides have started to really show up south of the bay bridge…..Stripers up to 32″ have been right behind them on many occasions. Haven’t had breaking fish much at all this year but I think it’s starting to take off now. Have had breaking fish the last couple of days between Thomas Point and the Bay Bridge. A 1/2 ounce jig head loaded with a 6″ BKD or Bust’m bait has been catching well. Using to much weight just doesn’t seem to produce. Using a light head and letting it drop below the fish and working it back through seems to be the ticket.
Short notice walk-on for this Friday, 17 July and Monday, 20 July. Trips will depart at 530 from Paradise Marina in Deale, MD. and return around 2pm or so. We’ll throw jigs and surface plugs early then go looking for large fish at the bay bridge and beyond. I will have some live spot on board also if the occasion arises to drop some down.
