I’ve never been much of a summer deep water bass fisherman, I do better in cooler weather in the shallows.

A couple of friends are showing me the deep water ropes, and I’m starting to see some results.

I took a break from striper fish to fish with my buddy on his reservoir rig. It was a slow day and I was only 1 fish away from the skunk!

It’s been a pretty good season so far this year. I moved my boat to be closer to the bay bridge and shorter trips have me fishing the Patapsco river. I’ve been doing well around structure with crank baits.

I finally managed a decent bass on a slow afternoon of fishing. I found this guy hiding in a downed tree.

Some mild February weather convinced me to try my hand at some mid-winter fishing.

I caught a decent brown and this nice rainbow stocked by the state. Both were released safely to fight another day.

Nice fish! I have always wanted to fish the Gunpowder. I live on Kent Islabd, where is a good access point to fish this fishery?

Hi Welcome to Stackfish! Sparks, Glencoe and Monkton Md all have parking for the NCR railroad trail, these are great spots to get to the river. Further north, look for any bridge that crosses the river, most have adhoc parking sites. Good Luck!

It’s been a rough fall for my fishing since I’ve not been finding any stripers in my go to fall locations.

Between the freshwater flooding and the warm weather the fish haven’t been where I’ve been fishing.

I finally found a few stripers in shallow water including this barely legal 19 incher. With the water temps in the mid 60s, I’m hopeful things will start looking up!

Amongst the numerous shorts, I managed 1 keeper and 1 would be keeper I had to release since he had the sores that are so common on our Chesapeake stripers.

My buddy @capt.-Jim was fishing in his boat right next to me caught a nice 25 incher.

Coming in at 13 inches this is my personal best.

My buddy @claydavis83 caught a 13.5 incher on the lake a few weeks ago, so hopefully this PB won’t stand for long!

I’ve been coming up a little short on my recent Striper trips. Finally today I caught just long enough for a keeper.

I’m trying to learn the tried and true method of chunking bunker for Stripers since the summer has always been tough for my light tackle lure fishing.

My recent attempts chunking with a conventional bottom rig were not that successful, so today I fished a hook with a inline sinker.

This worked well since I could easily tune the depth of my bait to where I was marking fish by reeling out or in.

I fished the whole morning with my trolling motor spot locked for my anchor. I really think that motor spinning attracted them since I outfished my neighbors with conventional bottom rigs by 2-1.

I caught about 5 yellow perch and 0 crappie today. All of the yellows where very small.

The bycatch was exciting though, I lost another largie at least this size at the boat.

Coming in at 12.5 inches this is the biggest yellow perch I recall catching, the largest since adult fishing for sure.

She was caught on a slow retrieve of a white keitech swimbait.

Finally a fish! I've been fishing all winter but not catching!

I took my yak to a local creek today and wasn't hooking up. I kept noticing splashes so close to the bank I figured they were frogs. Finally a splash within casting distance landed this short striper. Go figure!

It was a beautiful day for chasing birds on the Chesapeake but for some reason the fish were not schooling today. The birds were scattered with a single quick dive here and there and then back to flight searching for the next fish.

Since it was such a calm day, I figured a topwater lure was the best fish whistle I had, so I started throwing it. I started to get some strikes by dinks so I just drifted and casted. Finally I got a larger short right at the boat. I kept working and finally got this nice 21 inch fish with about 6 feet of line out. I then started getting more and more strikes at the boat.

So I was wrong, topwater was not my best fishing lure today. The best fishing lure I have is a little expensive, it's called a Grady White 192 lol
