August ending with the best fishing.

Fishing has gotten better even though I didn’t think it could.  We started catching more keeper Stripers(rockfish) this week in addition to Bluefish, Spanish Mackerel, Spot and Croaker.  We had a great weekend despite the threat of tropical storm Danny as you can see in the photos below and I really appreciate everyone who came this week.

Calm Seas & Good Fishing

Hurricane Bill was thankfully  going to have no effect on us up here on the Potomac River and Chesapeake Bay but it was hard to convince my parties the last couple of days to come.  Two weekend charters cancelled thanks to the Weather Channel.  It was slick calm both days and the captains that fished had wonderful catches.  Bluefish, Spanish Mackerel & all kinds of bottomfish were caught.  

I want to say “Thank You” to my summer mate, Jordon Strickler, who is returning to college.  He will be a sophomore at Ferrum and I know he will do well again this year. 

I enjoyed having a long time customer, Cornell Walker and his family and friends fish with me this past week.  Here’s photos of Cornell’s grandson. We caught blues, mackerel, and spot.

Blues, Drum, Rockfish & Croaker

Fishing still remains good.  We’re catching Bluefish, Mackerel, Red Drum, Croaker and even had a couple keeper Rockfish.  I’ve chummed, trolled and bottomfished.  Many thanks to a lot of good people who fished with me and hope to see you again soon.  I have lots of available days and the fishing is good so get a group together and come on down.  Dave
