After a couple of weeks of sub-par weather and slow bookings, we were back at it today on Maryland's Chesapeake Bay, in pursuit of some more of these awesome Chesapeake Bay rockfish! As can be seen from the above picture, the fish have already undergone the transition from the big monsters that we were catching earlier this spring to the smaller 18"-28" variety. However, now we can keep two per angler as opposed to one! Also, a lot of people prefer the taste of the smaller ones. At any rate, the fishing today was slow starting out, as we had a hard-running flood current to contend with. However, when the current slacked up some, we started to pick away at them. We ended the day with a nice catch, just a couple short of our legal limit. The fish pictured above ranged between 18 and 24 inches in length. These guys were all very happy when they left, and we look forward to seeing them again! A great crew! We are trolling for these stripers now, but soon, we expect some light tackle action with live bait. Stay tuned!
