My name is Miles Suttle and I spend a lot of time fishing for all species with light tackle. I love fishing for specks, drum, and stripers with light tackle under 12 pound test and fly rods. I am an avid cobia hunter and love catching them with light tackle as well! I will try and give reports on these species soon. Hopefully will be speck'n soon the weather is getting RIGHT!

My name is Mike and although I've lived along the Chesapeake (Beard's Creek off the South River) for 10+ yrs now I just stowed the clubs and bought my first fishing boat in August. Can't claim to be a strictly LT fisherman - or anything else for that fact - though a recent WO LWT charter out of Solomon's got me "hooked" enough to start outfitting my boat with light rigs. My previous SW fishing experience has been summer OBX gulf stream charters, and then way back in the 70s as crew aboard family/friend's boats trolling LI Sound, Montauk & BI. So, after a LONG break (and now at 50+) I'm having fun learning to captain, and loving the notion of SW fishing on light gear!

Tips, advice, critique welcome... and if you're near the South River interested in fishin, albeit with a newbie, give me a shout.

Greetings, My name is Tom Granger TomGlenBurnie
I have been fishing, since I was a little stinkybutt boy.

I remember trolling the bay, when all you could hope to catch was Blues.

My Unkle Jim took me when I was 14, to magothy R, where they rented boats.
[ Near that bar shooters on rt 2 ], Jim live lined a big purty minnow, and
let her run into the weeds.

Jim was whispering, just keep quiet tommy,
they can hear your feet and your voice.

Jim lit a camel, and it was like he had lit
the fuse on a stick of dynamite.

The weeds exploded , there was a flipping beast in there.
Jim fought the chain pickeral for what seemed like a long time.
I'll never forget it, 26" prehistoric chain pickeral,
prettiest thing you ever saw.
That was the king of the river : Majestic

When i was very small, I fished a tidal salt water pond in rivera beach.
I used to catch sunnies pumpkinseed in their breeding nests.
I was fly fishing, but did not know it... muddy feet, angry mother.

I want to learn to jig up some rockfish. I live and work on Patapsco river.

thanks, tom g.

As my board name indicates I used to bottom fish for croakers and anything else that would bite on sqidd or bloodworms or shrimp but now I light tackle fish out of my kayak.Not very good ad it yet buy I'm going to keep practicing as long as I can. Love it and some days I get skunked bit I just say had a good paddle.When I do catch a fish its just a plus to the "nice paddle"! Life is good!:fishing2::thumbup:

Hi, my name is Dave. I spin and fly light tackle mainly for largemouth, smallies, black crappie, brooks, browns, bows, shad, rockfish, grouper, snapper, baracuda, tarpon, permit, and bonefish. I handline low test for grouper, snapper, baracuda, tarpon, permit, and bonefish. I have always fished light tackle because its more fun. Tight lines to all.

Hi there!

I'm a light tackle boat angler from Cork in Ireland! Bass (European not striped) are my primary target and thereafter anything that will take a lure.
I fished recently with an American friend (Bottom Knocker) here in Ireland. I was delighted to learn that there are even more than I thought doing the same thing Stateside. So, here to pick up on the American experience and to pass anything of use from our side of the atlantic.

Whats up yall, My name is Billy, I grew up in norther (redneck) Fl fishn for specks, reds , hybrid bass exc.. anything that bends a rod. Reds and Specks are my favorite. Did some spearfishing for awhile around here but nothing compares to a big red on light tackle. Typically I pick up my bow in the fall but this year Im gonna stick to fishn the colder months.
Im really lookin forward to the stripers this fall, I mainly stick around Gloucester area (marshes). But this year I have been branching out to elizabeth river, HRBT. Dont really know alot about striper fishing but I plan on learning all I can.
