Fishing Outlook - Memorial Day Weekend

The light tackle fishery is doing well, working shallow water points and structure. There are plenty of striped bass schoolies ranging 15" to 25" in many places, and some speckled trout action to the southern parts of the Honga River and Hoopers Island. We have been fishing everyday and finding different patterns in different locations this year, most notably the preferable color pattern. Sunrise and sunset have the best times for topwater plugs.

The big take away that I have seen this week, seeing large 24" to 36" snakeheads swimming along the bulkheads in Solomons in harbor last week, very poor water conditions in there. However, most people focus on heading right out, but fish are working right inside along structure - best times sunrise or sunset.

The fishing for Memorial Day weekend should be great. Call to book a trip.
