What a day today was for Specks!!!! Yesterday we struggled a bit….caught some Stripers…..caught 2 Specks which ain’t bad but what a difference a day makes! The water was a beautiful ocean green today and the tide ripped really good both in and out. We didn’t start out great but once the tide started moving out the fish, both Stripers and Specks really lit up.
Along with many 28 Specks caught today we caught endless Stripers on BKD’s, Shads, Crankbaits and Surface plugs. The surface plugs hit stripers really good over stumps and other submerged timber. Really cool getting mid-20’s Stripers over stumps.
I even got lucky today with a couple of fish myself! I hooked a good one thinking Striper but it didn’t head shake hardly at all….then it rattled it’s head quick…..definetly not a Striper feel….well…it wasn’t! This nice Flounder found it’s way into my net!
The Speck bite never seemed to end today….just when we thought it was fizzling out we’d catch a couple more. I found them on several different points between the Honga River and South Marsh Island. Quite a day indeed!!!!
I’ve got some open dates next week and the week after for trips over to the eastern shore. I’m hoping this great Speck bite holds up for the rest of May. Stripers made a great showing over there also. I expect it will hold up. If you are interested in a trip for Specks and Stripers in the eastern shore Islands give me a call anytime!
