Steady Slow Bite All Day

Type: Chesapeake
Region: Middle Bay
Location: South West of Tilghman

Two-person team departed Chesapeake Beach West Marina. Marked fish straight out in 45 of water, west side. Trolled a spread of 7 lines. Lost 2 on the far back line, 7 colors on my lead core rig, pulling a small green head bucktail with green skirt and yellow trailer tandem at about 25 feet deep. Caught and released one 9 inch rock which hit a green and yellow bucktail back about 80 feet. Moved over to east side SW of the Tilghman Island Reed south of 82. Marked fish and large bait balls in 35-50. The bait balls were both on the bottom and from the bottom up 25 feet. Caught 4 schoolies 18, 19, 20, 21. Six of the 7 hit the same tandem on the lead core. Large area of very red water about a mile south of 82. Looked like an algal bloom. Caught fish under it though. Another boat with 3 anglers spent the day jigging west of Poplar in vicinity of the buoy on the shelf. They got 6 schoolies including one about 24, 2 Croakers, and 1 Bluefish. It was a steady slow bite all day.
