I fished yesterday. My son Daniel is in the area on vacation. He brought along his family, and also some friends who work with him at radio station WDVX in Knoxville. While the rest of our crew went to Eastern Market, Dan, Anna, and I launched off Kent Island and ran south, finding several pods of very small rockfish within a few miles of the ramp. A little farther south things got better and we encountered keeper sized stripers blitzing over a live shell bottom about 20' deep. These were two and three year old fish. There were several boats working them including a few trolling so the schools were breaking up pretty quickly. There was ripping incoming current, so I figured there might be some good fish breaking elsewhere as well, and we were hoping for some bluefish to go along with the rock for a fish fry. I headed on south to the grass beds I found last week. We marked stripers on the bottom, but no sooner dropped a jig when they came up surface feeding. No birds anywhere to be seen, just very good quality rockfish blitzing on peanut bunker. Big topwater lures with big hooks kept the smaller stripers off. They were eating up Lonely Angler's and Stillwater Smackits. I'm hearing reports of good fishing both up and down the Bay lately, and on either side. Looks like the summer pattern is shaping up nicely.
