The bay area near Annapolis is very interesting - never know what type fish will so up each year.
The salinity in the area can range high enough that Spanish Macks will be caught - then next year low enough that Catfish are caught.
So far this year - salinity is up , so likely we'll see fish more common to the south show up.
Congrats on a unique fish on a jig - most are caught on bait.
What could be more mundane than dying of old age or of natural causes when there is death by misadventure to be pursued ? Skip
