The Upper Bay continues to produce. We had fish to 35" today!
I ran half of a two boat trip today.

I didnt see the airplane, but I watched the Bald Eagles fly around

Friday I caught 3 sharks, 2 skates and a fish. Sunday morning I caught another shark. I would have like to get some more fishing in this past weekend but a simple brake job on my father in laws trucks turned into also requiring a fuel pump swap.

Years ago a business aquaintance of mine opened up a B&B / Charter Boat business in Lewes where you'd stay the night and he'd take you on a fishing charter and then prepare the fish for that night's dinner. I have no idea if it ever worked out for him but I thought it was a pretty cool idea.

My son would be all over that. He loves whales and sharks.

What setup did you use and where? I might try to land some sharks for him.

This was on a private beach just north of lewes DE. But the tactics should be about the same anywhere you surf fish.

I normally use a bluefish or kingfish rig. For bait I normally use blood worms, mullet or bunker. This time I happened to have some left over LY that I chunked up.

Well, we went out of Fisherman's Wharf.

Daughter and I got skunked except for 2 Dogfish and a Blue Crab

Still, a bad day fishing beats a good day at work. Unless you make a living by fishing.

I'm going to try snagging some white perch this coming Saturday below Conowingo and would love tips on locations, bait and techniques if anyone is interested in knowledge sharing.

Haven't posted in a while. Fishing down here in Chesapeake beach has been great. Limits of nice healthy fish. Went south on my own boat two weekends ago and got close to 20 blues and a mackerel.

Went out this morning, drifting eels, caught 2 33"rs and one 30"r... a good morning, though the first 33 I caught was a spotty rascal, so he was freed...

Two came home for dinner for the 3 families...

Today I had the best fight ever. Water was dirty so I was showing my son how to throw a new to him lure, a spinner bait and on the 2nd cast it got nailed by a pretty good size bass.



I didn't weight it or measure it, my guess would be around 16 inches? The kicker was trying to reel it in using my 4 year old's setup. Only saving grace was having 8lb line on it.

4'6 ultra light ugly stik with a Shimano Sienna 1000 reel, the reel kept running, I tightened it down, and down some more and down some more... finally it was fully tightened down yet the fish was still able to pull the line out, thankfully the fish came towards us allowing me to take up most of the slack. In order to get the last 5 feet or so, I had to use my hand to pull the line as I reeled it in.

I have to give ugly stik credit, I cannot believe the rod didn't break when I landed the fish, the tip bent over in such an extreme angle that I was fully expecting it to snap. It did not.

I'm familiar with freshwater lake and pond fishing. Will be going to Nags Head , right next to Jeanette's Pier. I have a Heavy Spinning Rod with 20# test. I've seen most people with a weight and multiple hook rig. What kind of bait to use? Is there any artificial lure that works off a pier?

For spot, squid works well on your bottom rig.

Look into float rigs for bigger fish:

These work great on blues. They cast a mile and are best used when(if) a school of blues comes through(the small ones go on the float rigs for big fish). Rig these on stout spin-casting tackle.

In addition to Outrider's response, you will likely want some heavy duty bottom rigs and various size hooks (depending on what is biting). I just picked up a dozen wire bottom rigs from Anglers this week. As for bait check with the tackle shops down there. It will change often depending on what they are catching or what you are trying to catch. Squid, bloodworms, eel, cut mullet are all good.

Swing by TW's tackle and bait shop in OBX, they will tell you what's biting where and set you up with a rig and bait!

This + most all piers carry fresh bait(that's where they make their money).
