    Walk-On Dates Available Now!



Fishing has been nothing short of really good on Stripers!  Catching large numbers on the light sticks tossing jigs, surface plugs and crank baits.  Early in the morning has been very good on several days on the surface. Gotta love that!  The main stem of the bay has been very active in the last 10 days with small stripers working bait under birds in 40-50+ feet of water.  When I mark fish 30′ or deeper in this situation I’ve been getting many over 24″ fish with some over 30″.  Really good stuff on light tackle!  

Sherry with a great light tackle caught 31″ Striper!


The islands of the eastern shore are very active with Stripers up to 24″.  Great fun catching Stripers in shallow water in the beautiful islands. I’ve had some really large fish in the shallows on occasion around South March and Bloodsworth Islands.


                                                 Mother’s Day Catching!

Scott with mom and some great light tackle Stripers


Had a great trip recently with Scott and his mom, Sherry.  Scott called and reserved a day for him and his mom for mothers day.  I expected an “older” lady who wasn’t going to be overly anxious to fish but glad to be out on a nice day with her boy.  Scott and Sherry rolled up to the boat bright and early and right away I knew it was going to be a great day.  Scott, a nice guy and skilled angler was ready to catch.  His mom did alot of fishing but not much in the line of light tackle jigging.  So…..Sherry had to “learn the game”.  Learn it she did… no time flat she was hooking up on nice mid-20’s Stripers with her biggest at 31″.  She was a quick learner and wildy enthusiastic….so much so I had to “reel her in a bit” so not to alert a couple of boats not to far away of our bite on a really nice grade of fish.


Mothers Day Joy……light tackle fun!


Thanks so much for a great day Scott and Sherry…..was a day I certainly won’t soon forget!


The month of may has been a very busy one!  Have been on the water almost every day this month.  What I’m really hoping for is the Speckled Sea Trout!  Last year the first one was caught on my boat on May 3.  This year finally the first one happened….problem is I caught it!


I caught the first Speck on my boat this year… was an accident!  Honest it was!  The free t-shirt and Walk-on trip is still up for grabs……I don’t count!  The conditions haven’t been great in the Speck water and the long winter may have them behind a bit.  So…..I’m hoping they come on strong any second now!  Catching in the eastern shore island has been very good…..Specks or no Specks the catching has been great!



 Walk-On trips Available Now!


Had a short notice cancel for Saturday, 24 May and I’ve got Thursday the 29th of May available for Walk-On!  We’ll be launching from Solomons at the boat ramp under the bridge or Buzz’s Marina if I move down there before the Walk-On’s.  We will be light tackle fishing the main-stem of the bay and working the islands hard for Specks, Stripers and a hopeful Red.  Conditions should be rapidly improving for the Speck bite to get good.  Let’s go fish’in! WIN THAT SHIRT AND WALK-ON TRIP!  I’m dying to give it away!!!!!!
