Uncle, Uncle!!!

Type: Chesapeake
Location: Point Lookout State Park

I went fishing the late evening of 6/22/2015 at Pt. Lookout State Park. Fished several location throughout Cornfield Harbor before settling on a location about a mile or two right outside the ramp entrance. Bottom fished while drifting and caught croakers until we had to say uncle after reaching our limits. Tried a few different techniques: Salted last week’s bloodworms using sea salt and they surprisingly caught more croaker than the fresh bloodworms and squid, stayed on the hook longer too. Also, instead of using a single bait per hook, we put 3 to 5 smaller pieces of bait on a single hook. This prevented the fish from stealing all of our bait at one time. Really worked well with our circle hooks, rarely retrieved an empty hook. For ice we used frozen water in recycled Gatorade bottles. Filled our Engle Deep Blue Coolers with sea water and the frozen water bottles to keep the temperature a very cold 40 degrees.

Looking For Fishing Fun

Type: Freshwater
Location: Maryland Stream

Just looking for some fishing fun, and boy did we find it. We put on our waders and fished a half mile stretch of this Maryland stream. Caught and released about 50 of these sunfish in about 2 hours. Throwing small spinner blades tipped with a piece of worm. Retrieve was moderate, interrupted by a pause long enough for the bait to hit the bottom. Crystal clear water made it easy to see the bite and make adjustments. The first few fish in each fishing hole struck on the retrieve, the remaining fish would strike on the pause and a few would even pick the bait up off the bottom. The rains came and ended our fun. It was wonderful while it lasted.

Lower Potomac Variety

Type: Tidal
Region: Southern
Location: Potomac river

Bottom fished the lower Potomac below the 301 bridge. Caught several spot, croaker and perch but the big surprise came while testing umbrella rigs for bottom fishing. We caught 13 perfect sized catfish while dragging a 15 inch castable umbrella rig on the bottom in 14 feet of water. We placed an in-line weight up front, left the bait arms expanded but empty and put bloodworm and cut-bait on the long center arm. Dragging the bait kept the bait just above the bottom with zero snags.

Bottom Bouncing for Croaker, Perch and Spot

Type: Tidal
Region: Southern
Location: Point Lookout

Day two in our boat out of Point Lookout, headed north a short way up the Potomac River. We bottom bounced colored spinner blade rigs tipped with either garlic-night-crawlers, bloodworm, squid or shrimp. The hot colors were pink, violet, aquamarine, red, orange and surprisingly enough, brown. The not-so-hot colors were chartreuse, green, yellow, blue and clear. We caught plenty of Spot, White Perch and the boat limit of Croaker. All in all, a great day fishing.
