I was in the Magothy today and all we caught was a cold. I heard they were catching them a couple weeks ago but it cooled off. They say they haven't spawned yet so my guess is they'll be hitting before long..........
whats everybody using? I've tried small spoons, live minnows, small bkds, trout worms, plastic grubs, plastic worms, spinner baits, crank baits, no yp, had a few bucket mouths and shad but no ring perch.
I don't think that they have come and gone yet. Last year I had my best day (in the Tuckahoe River) on March 10th. It hasn't snowed as much tthis year as it did last, but it certainly has been a cold one. My guess is next week. But then again, what do I know. If the weather allows me, I'm going to try next Wednesday.
I've fished for them everyday this week, anywhere from 1-4 hrs per day, and yes this week has been slooooooooow. There have been some decent Yellows caught but it seems that the window for when they are biting has only lasted about 1/2hr....... And the ones that I have caught will barely even move the bobber..... very light bit. Couple warm days should get them going. These 20degree nights is what I think has them messed up. What the hell do I know though
well went out on the pax river this morning with yp's on my mind. We launched north of jug bay and went upstream about 2 miles and drifted back with no yellows to be found. Talked to a few people on the shore fishing along the way they also came up empty. We ran into a few shad along the way but still no yellow perch. Guess they havent made it that far north yet. doh
well I went back to Wayson's Corner today in the rain in search of the yp's I missed yesterday. Got to the bridges and it was raining buckets, perfect conditions to fish alone.. Walked downstream about 100 yards and set up shop. I was working two rods, one with a small spoon and the other drifting a grass shrimp under a bobber. Ended up catching two yp's right when the tide turned and that was it. The first fish took the spoon and the second took the shrimp. Both fish went back into the river happy and healthy.
