Nice fish are whacking surface plugs early. With a little cloud cover the bite will hang on all morning! I’ve been launching at 5am lately and it’s paid off! The last several days I’ve had a limit of fish by 7 am or so with many releases to boot! Today was the first day I’ve seen fish under birds with huge schools. Jigging deep in the schools is producing a larger grade of fish for sure! On the surface I’m using Stillwater Smack’it surface plugs, Yozuri crystal minnows and wind cheaters for crank baits. My soft bait of choice is an 8″ bust’em bait in white, chartruese or albino. In the eastern shore islands I’ve been hitting a decent number of fish with many stripers over 20″ on most days. We’ve caught some Stripers up to 28″ in the islands. I’ve had 7 Speckled sea trout so far. Nothing to write home about but at least it’s a start! Moral of the story so far is plenty of Stripers are on the prowl and ready to eat in many different areas of Chesapeake Bay out of Solomons. Good stuff for sure!

Light tackle fishing is great right now! Getting some large fish on surface plugs early then hunting down Stripers and Specks in the waters of the eastern shore islands. Island trips cover many miles, the sights priceless. Fishing is good too! This thursday’s forecast is for light easterly breeze….perfect! Could be great!
