Finally a Fishing Update

Forgive my delays on an update. Had to go through process of changing blog servers etc. Also lost last years archived posts but kept some older ones up for you to check out.

As some of you keeping watch may know, this Spring has been a tough go on the Chesapeake. I am usually reporting on our fishing ventures on the Susquehanna Flats this time of year, but this season was a bust. Large amounts of runoff on the river brought extreme river flows, as high as 316,000 cfs, and ruined the season. The water on the flats as of today is still muddy and fishing was just impossible. Thanks to all of you who booked and have been flexible with re-scheduling.

Good news is that the Striper fishing has picked up for us a little further down the bay. We have been leaving from Kent Island and fishing surrounding waters. In the past few days we have been catching lots of schoolie size fish on both flies and lures. Lots of fish in the 18 to 22 inch range and a shot at some larger fish each day. We landed a decent 32 inch fish on a recent trip and had a handful of 24 inchers. The fishing should only continue to improve the next week or so.
