Due to a whole bunch of issues got out real late. left the severn river around 11:30 AM, put lines in just north of 84A at about noon. pretty vacant, not many boats at all. trolled south zig zagging between 20 and 50 feet all the way past 82 with basically a blue screen all afternoon. stuck to the eastern side Nice ride though, flat calm, no wind, sunny, and we were all by ourselves (given the meter was blank not surprising). water temp peaked about 61F. turned out west and began heading north and worked out a bit deeper. wish we had done that sooner. halfway between 84 and 82 meter went crazy with marks between 56 and 68 feet of water. bait was thick. I mean thick. Its about 4 pm now. first marks of the day, and 4 hour boat ride was finally over. BAM. white 5oz alien head with a white 9 inch shad on the board breaks free. after a good fight, 42 inch fish. photo op. barely have time to get camera away, have not even put back out the bait that got hit, and BAM, center line 5oz purple chugger head with a chartreuse 9 inch shad back 18 bars gets hit. after a good fight, a healthy 37 inch fish was released back to the bay. over the next 30 minutes stayed tight with the bait, snagged some bait, had several strong knockdowns that did not come tight, mostly on 5 oz singles and 2/4 tandems back between 5 and 8 bars, and then had to pull lines at 5pm to meet folks back at the dock. left them biting. checked the 13 lines throughout the day, only one ever had jellies. deep downrigger rods did not get touched at all.
