Chesapeake Bay Fishing Report, Tangier Sound Speckled Trout, Redfish

I moved the boat down to Crisfield, MD last week to fish the surrounding areas for speckled trout and redfish. Last year in June we had exceptional fly fishing for large speckled trout and slot sized redfish in the shallows.  We also had good shallow water fly fishing for keeper sized rockfish.  This year has not proved to be as productive.

I fished the area all of last week and this weekend with several groups of capable anglers.  We caught mostly small rockfish and bluefish up to 2 or 3 lbs.  The speckled trout and redfish have not shown their faces, short of reports from local fisherman catching some at night on bait.  I am hoping we will see some trout and puppy drum move in later this month and will keep you posted.  Until then I will be fishing out of Ocean City where we have had some larger rockfish, bluefish, and some really nice flounder.  A few good weakfish have also been caught this week.
