Details: Black Crappie
First crappie on the 5-weight and a beautiful one at that. Caught fishing a group of three submerged trees while bumping the fly on the bottom. Probably around 13 ...more inches.
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.
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.
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.
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.
