Chesapeake Bay Fishing

April 17, 2011

As you can see from the above picture, we kicked off our 2011 Maryland striper fishing season off with a bang! It was great to get out on the Chesapeake Bay again, especially after our opening day trip that was scheduled for the day before was canceled due to extremely foul weather that came through.

The fish in the picture range between 32 and 38 inches in length. Due to local flooding, we got off to a late start, but started catching as soon as we got our lines out. After picking up two or three, we hit a dry spell for a couple of hours until the hard-running ebb current slacked up. When the current slacked up, the fishing took off again, leading to us catching our legal limit of Chesapeake Bay striped bass! It was a great time on the bay, with great weather and a great crew!
