Big Light Tackle Stripers Are Active! Many big fish lately! Walk-On’s Available Now!!!

Posted by on November 7, 2013

Dan with a 35″er caught on a 10″ Chartruese BKD…..Good Stuff!!!!

Well folks, the light tackle big fish bite is on right now!  Over the last 10 days I’ve had many fish over 30″ and up to 38″!  A real battle on light tackle and the fish are very spunky in mid 50’s degree water.  Most of the big fish are coming on structure in 14-20′ of water but lately some big fish are under birds and amongst many smaller fish.  BKD’s  ( ) in Chartruese Glitter, purple glitter or white have been working great!  10″ BKD’s are killer on big fish!  When they are feeding on menhaden over structure BKD’s can’t be beat!

John caught this 35″ fatty using a 6′ Cove Series Spinning Rod loaded with a 10″ BKD….good stuff!


We still don’t have the numbers of big fish we did for several years but with hard work and persistance there certainly are some nice fish to catch!  I don’t think these fish are ocean run fish.  Not sure on that but I haven’t seen sea lice on the fish and haven’t seen a fish over 40″ yet.  I’ll take fish in the 30’s on light tackle anytime!  Between big Stripers we are catching huge numbers of smaller fish.  Truly fishing is real good right now!  Water temps in the main stem of the bay are still near 60 degrees….we have many more degrees to go before fishing turns down…..we are still on the way up!

These three fish were caught at the same time all on BKD’s over structure……when located these fish eat hard!


I’ve launched lately from Solomons and currently am back at Buzz’s Marina (  ).  Bird activity has been strong in the Point Lookout region of the bay.  Between structure and birds plenty of activity is available!


Plenty of great fish on this day! Flat water jigg’in big fish!
