Word got out about big school of Rockfish. It has been moving steadily north.
If you look at the charter boats - many are from Deale / Chesapeake Beach / Tilghman ( all south of bridge 15-20 miles ).
Scary to think these guys are running that far for Rockfish. Common sense they would not if Rock were in their home water area close to dock.
Now add in a perfect weather wise Saturday - all the charters from Rock Hall / Kent Island / western shore fishing their " home waters " - add in few hundred private weekend warriors - you get a total zoo.
Fish weekdays, only problem is the weekend warriors will wipe them out! Glad I'm done with the bay til fall, back in the bluewater catching fish that actually fight and not give up once they realize they got some metal in their mouth!
I fished near Issacs light off Grand Bahama island last week for tuna, we saw one other boat who looked like they were headed to Bimini. The birds were there in big groups over a canyon that was 2700 ft also plenty of Frigates. The Tuna both Blackfin and Yellowfin were zoned in on our Cedar plugs and also ate our metal jigs. Chunking with Sardines was the easiest way to catch them, we had acres of Tuna to ourselves.
