Fishing Report:
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!

Fishing Report:
My personal best so far post spawn. Caught this one on a chatter bait. Note one of my favorite lures but when in Rome... it’s great to pull through grass. I’ve found this year swim jigs with a weed gaurd are all the rage. It covers a lot of area and you can throw it almost anywhere.

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.

Caught two nice ones during my club tournament over the weekend. Typical square bill cranks were not working so I had to slow it down with a few different plastics.

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.

Category: Bass, Striped

Fishing Report:
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!

Fishing Report:
Caught this guy during a team outing at Centennial Park. I think people running by were more shocked to believe there are a actually fish in that pond. Hot summers require soft plastic with a bit of finesse. Caught him on a wacky rig with a black power worm. Size nothing to brag about but fun to catch regardless.

Fishing Report:
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!

Category: Bass, Striped

Fishing Report:
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.
