Light Tackle Striper fishing in the eastern shore islands is still hot and getting hotter! Some really nice fish have been popping up here and there like this 30+incher recently! Fish nailed a purple glitter 6″ BKD www.basskandydelights.com over stumps near shore of an eastern shore island……really good stuff!
Most Stripers being caught are very fiesty 16-20″ Stripers with several fish in the mix bigger. Lot’s of surface plugging action early in the A.M. or on overcast days. However, over major structure I’ve been getting surface hits even in mid-day sun. Always have a plug ready to throw when a slug of stripers shows themselves in an area.
Experienced angler or new at the game…..fishing is just great over in the skinny stuff! I’m over there often and never get sick of it……..beautiful and different every day! Had a crew from Texas and PA today in the wind…..couldn’t make it another day. We rolled out this morning with a stiff south wind….not horrible but scheduled to get nasty by early afternoon. Rolled up into the islands and found some great fish in 3′ of water in a secluded cove and protected from the wind. Peanut bunker flopping out of the water being chased by nice stripers. Game on! We had many nice fish and the new folks from TX had a ball…..about 1130 am we scooted back across the bay in a NASTY chop……made it back and filleted the fish….great day!Stef was scared of the fish!
Adventures over to the islands are a beautiful fish catching experience…….I love every one of them! Hoping for another one of these big boys soon!
