Good news! Big Reds are getting caught! My boat got lucky with a good one yesterday and I know others have been caught in other areas of the bay. Our huge Red was caught on light tackle using a 1.5 ounce Hardhead Custom Bait Jigging Spoon in chartruese and white. What a battle this fish put on light tackle. We landed the fish and carefully released it back to the sea……we watched it take off strong. Reds are still a long shot to catch but certainly very possible! Stripers, Blues and Spanish Mackeral are very busy on the main stem of the bay from Buzzs Marina all the way up to the Choptank and probably above. I’ve been making runs and glassing for activity…..been finding good stuff every day! Here’s a brand new light tackle angler who caught a trophy spanish mack on a jig……..really cool!
Best days I’ve had has been on very light wind and sun……fish are going off during the day on Silver sides all day long. Once the sun gets up the fish really get busy on these bait fish. Great time to be on the bay with lot’s of action with the shot at a true light tackle monster! Get out there and try it!
