Was invited on a half day afternoon charter out of Kent Island. Nice sometimes to sit back and let someone else do the work. Not as rewarding but still a relaxing time on the water. Live lining spot. Had a limit in 45 minutes. Bite was on when first bait hit the water and didn't let up.
What was your location on those fish?

Your best bet is to do some private networking with just a few people you can trust in the areas where you normally fish. If you see someone posting any reports in that area, send them a private message and ask if they want to share information.
Before you do so though, it's generally a good idea to have some info of your own to share.
Who was the Capt? What boat?

God for bid we have too many people out there enjoying fishing
Thanks Capt your 100 percent right,I called a couple of guys over there and got some info
If you cannot grasp this concept, you are in for a hard time on this, or any, internet fishing forum.

Have a great weekend!

I'll provide an example as to why:
When I lived up in Western MD I did quite a bit of trout fishing with the majority of it catch and release. I would go out when there was still snow on the ground and a lot of water was still frozen and scout for new and different areas. I found one little creek that was well off the beaten path and required some work to get to it. Plenty of fish and decent sized ones too. I was in college at the time and unfortunately took a friend of mine with me. In turn out of respect for me he asked me one day if I minded if he took someone else with him. Being very naive I agreed. Long story short I walked back to my favorite spot one day only to have it filled with a bunch of college kids that were drinking and carrying on. And these guys weren't too big on catch and release. More like catch and keep everything! Needless to say, I had to find a new spot and go through all that work simply because I tried to live by the everyone should enjoy fishing mentality. The only problem is most people are lazy and don't want to find their own location (not saying anyone on here is one of those people).
I'll give out general locations now but never specific locations. I learned my lesson.
