1,000 Spot in One Trip!!
Spot are in the mouth of the Patuxent in profusion. Capt Bernie Shea on his charter boat "Shea-dy Lady" took a ten-person party out of Solomons Island last week and they caught 1,000 (one thousand) Spot!! It doesn't get better than this.
Bunky's Charters out of Solomons are where you get in line to get on the Head Boat "Marchelle" to catch as many spot as you can reel in on a day trip.
Rockfish are up the Potomac for Chummers, Trollers and Jiggers. Some of these fish are 30 inches and 10 pounds. Lure Casters and Trollers can also find rockfish in the Patuxent in the shallows and in the deep holes.
Tiny Puppy Drum are in the creeks mixed with Perch and keeper Drum are scattered in the rivers. Spot are everywhere in the Potomac too. White Perch are in the creeks and the rivers in great numbers.
Spanish Mackerel are being caught on the edges of the ship's channel at Smith Point and south to the mouth of the Rappahannok. The Mackerel should come up to Point Lookout, Hooper's Island, the Targets and the Patuxent soon. Enjoy!
