Captains Log July 08′

Solomons Island Area
By Greg Buckner, Captain of the “Miss Susie”

Since returning from fishing down South fishing has been incredible with the exception of one trip.  The live linning for Stripers has been excellent, with fish being consistantly caught between 18 and 35 inches.  The evening Croaker fishing has also been very good with limits (25 per man) being caught almost every night.  The day time bottom fishing for Spot and Perch has been fairly good.
Starting a few days ago we have been seeing several schools of breaking/feeding fish.  These schools have both Rockfish and Blues in them.  We have been catching fish in these schools casting topwater lures into the breaking schools, live baits are also working well in these schools.

We will be live linning for Stripers until late October or early November, the breaking fish will be good for the next two months.  The PM Croaker bite will stay strong until about the third week in August.  Before school starts again, take your kids fishing they will remember it forever.  We specialize in family trips, and are very patient and entertaining when it come to ensuring the kids and their parents have a great trip.

Chesapeake Bridge Tunnel Area
By Greg Buckner, Captain of the “Miss Susie”

From June 24 th thru July 3rd we fished the Chesapeake Bay Bridge Tunnel Area.  We targeted Cobia, Red Drum and Spadefish.  The Cobia and Red Drum bite was not very impressive this year.  We only managed to hook 8 Cobia and land 6 of them.  Our two largest Cobia landed were 78.6 lbs and 57.3lbs.  We also landed 14 Red Drum all of which were over 30 lbs, with a few over 45 lbs.  10 of our 14 Red Drum were landed within about 2 hours time, it was awesome.  At one point we had three trophy sized Reds hooked up at one time.  The Spadefishing was good and we landed our limit on most trips (5 per man).  They are are hard fighting fish that looks like an Angelfish and are a ton of fun on light tackle.
