    Punxsutawney Phil might have seen his shadow which calls for another six weeks of winter, but that does not mean you can not get out of the house and talk and learn some new fishing tips and techniques. There are tons of fishing shows and seminars coming up this and next month that are worth attending. Here's a run down of some Chesapeake Bay region fishing happenings:

    One that should be at the top of your list if you are a largemouth bass or catfish enthusiast is the Saturday February 21, 2015 seminar near Lancaster, PA where expert anglers will provide in-depth and informative presentations on catching largemouth bass, flathead catfish, striped bass and other popular species at the ninth annual fishing workshop and seminars.

    I wish I had some better news to report about the tidal water fishing scene, but between windy weather keeping boats at the dock and when anglers do get a weather window the poor fishing for striped bass and tuna has anglers discouraged so just not too much is going on, but a few reports came in if you are interested in running a bit offshore and ...

    Itís been a cold, blustery, snowy beginning to the new year, significantly limiting fishing action. The good news is that January is history, the calendar has turned to February, and March, April and the spring rockfish season are coming!
    A good number of anglers turn their attention to freshwater fishing to help get them through the cold days of winter. As of Jan. 27, the Pocomoke River on Marylandís Eastern Shore was ...

    Saltwater fishing options are limited in and around Virginia waters right now. There are still a few reports of catch-and-release fishing for striped bass inside the bay, particularly near the deep-water area on the eastern side of the bay. Striped bass have been a no-show in the open coastal waters. Some have been encountered outside the 3 NM line by anglers searching for bluefin tuna but they do not seem to be thick out there either.

    Some monster bluefin tuna are being caught out of ...

    Striped bass fishing has been very slow. Itís catch-and-release only in the Chesapeake, but very few anglers have been out. Striped bass season is open within three miles of Virginiaís Atlantic coast (in the EEZ), but there have been no reports of fish caught. Some schools of striped bass have been reported ...

    Itís been a very challenging fall, to say the least. An abundance of windy, wet and cold weather, including the passage of the recent noríeaster, has played havoc with many planned fishing trips, or wiped them out altogether. While rockfish are still available in a number of Chesapeake Bay locations, getting to them has been difficult, and darn near impossible, much of the time. Some of those anglers who have been available and ready to fish when the weather has been decent have managed to put together some ...

    Anyone who fishes for striped bass knows that any striper caught over a thirty pounds is a heck of a fish regardless of the tackle or technique you catch it. Striped bass anglers also know that anything over fifty pounds is a catch of a lifetime and most certainly anyone that catches one of these beasts deserves recogonition. This past week a fellow Tidal Fisher, Mark aka Bodywarior, managed to catch that fish of a lifetime. And so the story goesÖ

    Capt Mike was kind enough to report that theyíve been out eeling lately off OPL and HR. The bite has been real slow for us but Mark (Bodywarior) connected on a very nice rock Friday night at the ...

    Hard to believe, but December 15, and the rockfish season in Marylandís portion of Chesapeake Bay, have come and gone already. And here comes Christmas! While it is difficult to detect from our current perspective, far out on the horizon is April, and the beginning of the 2015 fishing season. However, in the meantime, many anglers have put their boats in storage for the winter. Charter guides such as captains Walt at Light Tackle Charters, Walleye Pete at Four Seasons Light Tackle Charter, and Richie Gaines at Anglerís Connection Guide Service have moved south and are now fishing Virginiaís portion of the bay, and freshwater. Many of the first late-fall reports from the Chesapeake Bay Bridge Tunnel were disappointing; however, anglers have recently hooked up with a few more bigger stripers, primarily while fishing ...

    Frequent unfavorable weather conditions, hunting seasons, and the approaching end of the Chesapeake Bay striped bass season in Maryland have resulted in significantly fewer anglers and a lack of fishing reports information. While fishermen may be thinning out, striped bass numbers have remained high in certain locations. It's not time to put away the boat just yet.

    One of the few first-hand reports I have been able to come up with is from Captain Walt at Light Tackle Charters. He said striped bass fishing in Marylandís lower portion of the bay has been ...
