The past two days have been red hot for striped bass fishing on Maryland's Chesapeake Bay! Why is it that these blog posts just seem to be carbon copies of each other? I just don't get it! Well anyway, I want to talk about what we did today. Today was a day where the weatherman was screaming for foul weather on the Chesapeake, with heavy southwest winds, and a chance of rain and storms. It turned out to be the exact opposite with very light winds out of the west and sunshine all around. The fishing was every bit as good as the weather in spite of heavy weekend boat traffic. Check out what we did below.The fish on the right was 48" in length, 30" in girth, and weighed 45 pounds! A close-up of this fish can be seen below.
He looks like he is about to drop it at any second! Before the trip, he couldn't understand how we had broken two dipnet handles on recent trips! I think he understands now! We had our limit on these Maryland Chesapeake Bay rockfish by 10am!
The day before that, well, it was the same! We had our limit by around 10:30, on another day where foul weather was predicted, but turned out to be absolutely beautiful. What we did can be seen in the picture below.Half of the people in this group didn't even realize they were on camera! They were still debating over who caught the biggest fish! They all had a great time and all of them went home with a fish! These are longtime customers and we hope to continue to see them!
