With the forever lasting rain and cool weather the water in the shallows has mantained mostly in the high 50′s and low 60′s degree area. Water clarity has been really good and fish have been very eager to hit. Biggest problem is most of the water is to clear…….need some more temperature and some emerald green water instead of gin clear. The main stem of the bay has had some great schools of real nice fish in the 20′-50′ depth range under a few birds here and there from Breezy Point down to Point No Point.
While slinging Jerk Baits for Stripers on Eastern Shore points in 3-7′ of water a wayward Speck nailed the bait. Hoping many more show themselves as the water rolls through the 60′s and into the 70′s. Time will tell!
Baits of choice for me lately has been 6″ and 10″ BKD’s in Chartruese Glitter and Purple Glitter along with Storm Shads (4″), Bomber Wind Cheaters, CHug Bugs and any walk the dog type surface plug. Really good stuff!
WALK-ON TRIP! 3 Spots available
Weather for Thursday afternoon looks great! LIght wind and decent temps should equal a great shallow water bite! Had a crew of two request to get out but I’ve been booked solid for may for a while. Decided I’d do a few aftenoon (3 till darkish) walk-on trips. Afternoon can certainly be a great time to be on the water! We’ll be jigging and plugging shallow plus deep depending on what is going on the day we are fishing…….
