Surf Fishing
Who says you can't surf fish the upper Chesapeake? You just need to find high winds, a long fetch and a shoal! Lol

There is no place I would rather be than watching the sunrise on the Chesapeake on a calm fall day!

I'm trying to up my deepwater game with Stripers and I heard some good reports coming from the mouth of Patapsco river.

I couldn't resit taking a couple of shots at my normal spots around structure and rips but didn't even get a tap.

I went back to my fish plan, channel edges and birds. I found both, marked fish on both but couldn't convince the fish to bite. Probably a combination of my lack of deepwater skill and the fish coming off of their super-moon high.

I spoke to several guys on the water, some trolling and some light tackling, nothing but shorts. I'm sure the troll fleet off of North Point scored some nice fish since I could see but not touch some big fish.

Shaka AntoineNo matter what mood a striper is in. Feeding, well fed, or lock jaw striped bass will always hit and eel if you put it within five feet of them.

JimmyI'm sure that's true, I need to up my game with some bait fishing. I may try some Carolina rigged shrimp in NC in a couple of weeks since @baldheadedbobby gave me some tips on this technique.
