  2. Details: Spotted (Speckled) Trout

    Hooked this beautiful 24" trout a couple weeks ago off the pier of an RV park that my cousin has access to. Caught around 10:00 pm on high tide and fought like ...more a tank on my ML St Croix rod. Ended up with 6 keepers with this fish being the biggest by far.

  3. Details: Red (redfish) Drum

    Chasing bait in the west bay marsh was a success. We waded through grass that was partially submerged in less than 2 FOW and ended up with a mixed bag of reds and ...more flounder. This fish was 18" and fought like a freight train on my 7' ML. Ready to get them again tomorrow morning.

  4. Details: Spotted (Speckled) Trout

    3 keepers while fishing the lights last night. Caught around 25 fish with a mixture of trout and rat reds. Burning the bait through the lights yielded the best results. ...more Lots of fun from the kayak!

  5. Details: Bowfin

    Tossing the frog in heavy cover around 3:00 was producing. Hooked 6 bass ranging from 2-4.5 pounds and this 5 pound bowfin. He hit like a train and put up an incredible ...more fight in the lily pads.

  6. Details: Hybrid Striped Bass with a 9" Skirted Sassy Shad

  7. Details: Hybrid Striped Bass with a Skirted Chartreuse Sassy Shad

    41.5" striper caught trolling the sassy shad in 75 FOW. Hadn't had any luck all day but he nailed it around 1:00. Fought him for nearly 5 minutes before ...more we got him in the net. Water temp. was 52* and air temp. was around 70*. This fish easily doubles my previous PB which was around 22" and 10 lbs.

    Doubled up on two schoolie stripers on the bucktails. Measured 20" and 18"

  9. Details: Largemouth Bass with a Heddon Zara Spook

    A little throwback to early spring and the topwater bite. Caught this solid 3 pounder on the edge of the lily pads walking the dog nice and slow back to me. He choked ...more it right at my feet and even peeled a little drag.

  10. Details: Other Freshwater with a Crankbait

    Although this isn't fishing I thought I should share this pic. I was hunting on the last day of waterfowl season in MD and shot this goose with a crankbait attached ...more to its leg. Thought it was a band at first when he came into the decoys. His leg was all infected from the hook and line wrapped around him. This goes to show the negative effects of casting at waterfowl while fishing.

      And let it fly away. I have also seen this guy I know from a local lake have an osprey swoop down and grab a slide swimmer 250. His YouTube is Forumsquad9 I believe ...more so you can go check it out there.

      @SeanCochran ya it is but sometimes it's an accident. I have hooked a hawk before on a huddleston swimbait, but there was no way to stop it because it tried ...more to eat it. Luckily I was able to unhook it.
