Captains Log August 07′

Wow!!!!   That is the word that describes fishing right now out of Solomon’s, MD.  July was great for Rockfish using light tackle rigged with live Spot as bait.  And the last week and a half the live linning action has been as good as it gets, with nice sized fish from 20 inches up to 34inches.  The bottom fishing for White Perch and eating size Spot continues to be very good.  And the Bluefishing a little ways south of Solomons is also as good as it gets, when we make the run South.  This past Monday we landed 50 Blues from 3 to 6 lbs in 1 hour and 30 minutes.  Croaker are still being caught right at dusk and after, but the action, as it always is this late in the summer, is not real consistant.  We gave the Flounder a brief try this past Wednesday and landed 8 with only 4 people fishing and 3 were keepers.  I think with a better drift and some more time to go at it we could have had a good catch of 10 or more keepers.


The Red-Hot live linning should continue for the rest of August, as should the trolloing for Bluefish and bottom fishing for Spot and Perch.  Also, with the high salinity in the Bay at this time, I expect a good showing of Spanish Mackeral late August and all of September.  Yes, it is hot but so is the fishing, treat yourself and book a late Summer trip today.  Here are the dates that are still available for August and September………………..
