  1. Chesapeake Angler - The Original- Maryland Angler
    On 7/11/2017, after hearing about great reports from the southern regions of the bay, we decided to take our chances and fish a place we caught fish last week. Our goal was to catch enough fish for a small picnic and the fish did not disappoint. We left the Cobb Island boat ramp around 7:30 am...
  2. Chesapeake Angler - The Original- Maryland Angler
    Launched the boat on 7/5/2017 at about 1:00 pm on the Potomac just below the route 301 bridge. Started drift fishing in 15 feet of water using a Bottom Bouncing Spinner Rig, Carolina Ready Rig and an adjustable High Low Rig. For bait we used shrimp, squid and night crawler, no bloodworm...

    I was waiting to hear of a good fishing report from Point Lookout before trying myself. I couldnt wait any longer so I decided to go for it and boy was I glad I did. Took the boat out on the water yesterday (6/14/2016) at about 3:00, Bite was slow until the evening, caught my limit of croaker...

    My son and I launched from Croakers Landing about 6:30 AM yesterday. Went to an area near Bell Rock, the fish finder was beeping almost continuously. Fished for 5 hours. Put 46 Croaker in the cooler that were about 12". Released at least 50 more that were in the 10" or less. We hope these...

    Coming home from school on Thursday and plan on taking the boat out from Gwynn's island b/c it looks like the weather should be nice. Anyone have any luck with stripers out on the rappahannock near the white stone bridge? I can't decide if i want to spend the day fishing for them or just have a...
  6. Chesapeake Angler - The Original- Maryland Angler
    Well we decided to try a new area this past weekend so we ran up to Cambridge. At about 6:45am nearly high tide we launched the boat at Great Marsh Boat Ramp in Cambridge. The plan was to try to catch a few spot up by the rt. 50 bridge then see if there were any stripers around the fishing...
  7. Chesapeake Angler - The Original- Maryland Angler
    10 mph winds out of the South, 1-2 foot swells. Water clarity sucked, water was dark brown could only see a chartreuse lure about 12 inches deep. Started out around 9am near the bottom of the outgoing tide returned around 3pm. Fished Roaring Point for about an hour and a half with some...
  8. Chesapeake Angler - The Original- Maryland Angler
    10 mph winds from the South making 2-3 foot swells all day. Fished from 6am until 4pm from the bottom of the early low tide until nearly the next low. Water was very brown with poor visibility. Early on we tried the chimney for a few croaker (biggest of the day came from here at 14"), then...
  9. Chesapeake Angler - The Original- Maryland Angler
    So after our last few trips were somewhat productive we figured we'd try another long day out. We left Somer's Cove Marina at 6am on the low tide and headed to the sound. Throughout the day and outgoing/incoming tides we tried various sod banks, some drifting and a little anchoring with no...

  11. Chesapeake Angler - The Original- Maryland Angler
    Sorry for the novel, I've highlighted the bits most folks care about. I was looking forward to today's weather as I wanted to get out to Smith Island to try fishing the shore for spec and stripers for the first time on my own. Got all the way across the sound but was way to far North from...
  12. Chesapeake Angler - The Original- Maryland Angler
    10-15 mph winds NW(ish) Really nice day but we just couldn't land on them this time, someone anchored right in the middle of the hole we were on yesterday so we looked for a new area. Caught 6 or 7 catfish from 12-16 inches all released, 8 croaker that we kept only about half in the 12/13...
  13. Chesapeake Angler - The Original- Maryland Angler
    Small Craft Advisory, 25-30 mph winds from the WNW, no problem, it's the Nanticoke, just find a shoreline and hide ... right? RIGHT! That's what we did today, from 10:30am (nearly dead low tide, and the lowest I've ever seen at the Nanticoke harbor ramp) until 3:30pm. We crossed the river and...

    :yes: While I've been out on the water with my Dad since I was 3, was a charter mate for a season in Florida, and pretty good boat ho - I've never owned my own boat... Until a few weeks ago. It's been a long time coming. Just as i suspected, it's a very different experience when it's all on...
  17. Northern Neck Virginia Angler
    We went yesterday just south of the 301 bridge. About 5 miles to the south I'd say on the VA side in about 12-15 feet of water- just past that inlet where that big radio tower is. We were getting croaker hits pretty much every time the bait hit the water! It was great! We must have ended up...
