Shallow Water Surface Bite On, Deep water breakers and Island Stripers! It’s all happening…..Walk-On Trip Open For This Thursday, 21 May is booked solid

Posted by on May 18, 2015

30″er on the Surface! Good stuff!

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!

Here’s Anna with a real nice striper caught on her FIRST cast! Doesn’t get any better than that!!!

Hoping for more of these this week!

First Bluefish in the islands was yesterday!


WALK-ON TRIP Thursday, 21 May 2015- booked solid!  More walk-ons soon!

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!

Running a walk-on trip this coming thursday, 21  May 2015.  Right now the wind forecast is light!  Light wind equals good fishing!  We will launch from Beacon Marina in Solomons, MD 255 Lore Rd, Solomons, MD at 5AM.   We will use light tackle all day.  Suface plugging to start and then take the day as it comes depending on the bite.  Launch will be 5AM and we’ll return around 2pm or so.

Cost: $120 each
