Had been doing way too much trolling lately and while I love the big girls, I needed some pullage on the light stuff. Had a few hours this morning so got up at 6 and ran the boat out of the patapsco. Found some good marks off the Bodkin so started jigging a 6 inch pearl hard nose with a chartreuse tip (painted)...caught a few small ones up to about 17 inches and moved on. Continued to find good marks all within a mile of my spot but nothing of any size. Finally heard a nice sized sploosh and cast towards it, immediately hook up with a nice fish...fought it up to the boat only to have her look at me and spit my jig back at me, the jig promptly went into the back of my hand with the barb allt he way through..ended my fishing trip real quick, went home and cut the hook, poured some peroxide on it and went to Church...

pretty good morning all in all for an unplanned trip....

Mark,
I was out Saturday and could only find fish in 50' or more, water was approx 41 degrees. How deep were the fish you caught? - not asking for your secret spot - just a general idea of the depth to look for fish in 40 degree water.

thanks, Shout(Dan)

Thanks for the report, Mark. My dad would've been glad to hear you went fishing then went to church. He was a preacher and used to go out in his suit sometimes on sunday morning before he took the pulpit. Hope your hand is okay.

Tim, it is absolutely your fault...good looking holes in my hand too..

Shawn, figure gonna need God to help me catch fish as bad as my LTJ has been lately, funny you say that, I had my church clothes under my foul weather suit so I wouldnt get in trouble for being late..put the boat up and drove right there...

Mike, Youch!!!

Shout, the fish I found were in about 28 feet of water, nice little hole outside the bodkin surrounded by 12 feet of water, dinks all around with some nicer ones mixed in..
