Plentiful and Ready To Bite!
Spanish mackerel, spot, trout, cobia, and perch are plentiful and ready to bite.
We have a Labor Day weekend with cool mornings and hot afternoons, with calm winds. Perfect to catch the abundance of fish we have been blessed with.
Cobia are taking trolled surgical eel lures above and below buoy 72A, and on the Middle Grounds.
Spot are off the charts in the mouth of the Patuxent!
Capt. Bernie Shea out of Solomons is loading up daily.
Spanish are cruising up and down the Ship's Channel. Look for birds and breakers. Troll small spoons behind planers; if they stay still long enough you can cast small jigs or spoons to them and have a blast.
Capt. Greg Buckner on the Miss Susie is trying up cobia most every day before loading up on Spanish mackerel.
The Shea-D-Lady 301-672-3282.
Spot are everywhere and will take most any bait. Bloodworms, lug worms, fish bites, squid, shrimp, night crawlers, clam snouts, etc.
Rockfish are in the shallows for lure casters at daybreak. We have cooler nights, high tides in the AM this weekend, and clean water. Perfect conditions. The rock retreat to deep holes in the heated afternoons. Catch a couple dozen spot and live line them around structure for big stripers.
Let's go fishing!
Steve Helmrick is catching plenty of Spanish mackerel off Cove Point.
It's very good out there!
