Fishing and Blue Angel's Make for a Perfect Day

Type: Chesapeake
Region: Mid Bay
Location: Hacketts Point

Rhonda and I took the day off on Tuesday the 25th for some morning chumming off Hackett's and then watch the Blue Angel's practice in the Severn in the afternoon. Caught 3 nice fish during a strong outgoing tide and missed another before I got it close enough to net. Fish were 26, 27, and 27.5 inches. Blue Angels made it a perfect day on the water!

Less than sucessful trip on the Susky Flats

Type: Chesapeake
Region: Northern
Location: Susquehanna Flats

Thought I'd share a less than sucessful trip on the Susky Flats this past Sunday. Jim Sargent and I decided to try our luck on Sunday May 16th to see if we could catch a couple rock for the dinner table after catching over 160 this season during the catch and release period. Here's a picture of the only fish we landed. We missed a couple other dinks and one that felt like a keeper. It was still a pretty day on the Flats despite the fish had lockjaw or knew we had a cooler and ice waiting for two keepers.
