We are back in action at Sawyer Charters for 2010, and so are these awesome Maryland striped bass! This fine group of seven left Hoopers Island with us today shortly after 5am, in search of some of those killer Maryland rockfish. At first, we had about a two-foot swell to contend with, resulting from a northwest wind. However, that did not stop us from catching two right away. After an hour or two, we picked away and caught another pair of Maryland striped bass. Then, as the strong ebb current began to moderate, the wind died down. As the water began to calm, the fishing took off as we caught two at one time, followed shortly by another to complete our full legal limit of Maryland stripers! These awesome Chesapeake Bay rockfish ranged between 31 and 40 inches in length! These fine folks were very happy, and we look forward to seeing them again!
