Captains Log August 05′

On 7-26-05 we found that light-tackle Rockfish bite we had been looking for.  And for the last three weeks we have had some of the best “live bait” fishing action available anywhere in the Chesapeake Bay.  We have been catching our limits of Rockfish from 20″ to 38″ very quickly.  After catching our Rockfish we have been fishing for Spot and doing very well with them.  Many trips over the last three weeks have been cut to half day trips due to great fishing and extreme heat.

On Aug. 8th, after catching Spot and Rockfish, we gave Flounder fishing a try and did very well.  We caught our limit of 2 Flounder over 15″ per person for a party of 6 anglers.  Our largest Flounder was 24″.  We also had a good day Flounder fishing on Aug. 11th before the heat got to the party and they called it a day.  It looks as if this year might have some great Flounder fishing still to come.
