Fall Fishing

Fall Fishing

The fishing this fall has been great. Just came in from another fantastic evening of fishing. There is a lot of fun working topwater lures for rockfish this time of year. The past two weeks and this evening included just throwing topwater lures on the shorelines in 2 feet of water has been consistently producing some nice fish in the 18" to 25" size. Live lining in the deeper choke points is producing some nice fat fish in the 25" to 34" size.

So with the nice weekend coming up, it would be a great time to head out and fish around Hoopers Island. Jon boats are perfect for this type of fishing. (The fish don't care what type of boat you fish from) Get out on the water and enjoy the fishing.

Fishing Recap

Fishing Recap

The fishing has been really good this year, in terms of rockfish (striped bass) even with the past couple of weeks of hot weather we have been managing some nice fish for this time of year. Just this past week we had some surprising fluke action ranging from 15" to 18". So while many boats and anglers go up the bay or up the Potomac River past the 301 bridge, there is plenty of good action right here. I do read some of these fishing reports that are posted... I would disagree with the consistency of speckle trout (sea trout) in this area, at least from my standpoint, I have fished almost everyday since the end of March, and to this day have caught 3, take it for what it's worth.

September and October will be here soon, and we start filling up fast by mid August, so now is the time to pick a date and book a charter for the fall, if you are interested. 

As always we are very grateful for all our customers and clients that choose us. Tight lines!

Kind regards - Adam

Hoopers Island and Honga River: The week of September 12 to September 17, 2016, the weather was good, the best fishing was on the incoming tide. Lots of 18-24" rockfish working points and structure. A good mix of speckled trout and redfish were caught, most in the 12-14" range.

Exploring Holland and Spring Islands.

On Wednesday, August 12, 2015, we took a trip to Holland Island and Spring Island for a client to do bird counts. The wind was 20 mph plus, creating a bumpy ride in Hooper Straits. It was a great trip to explore these islands. We will make another trip down here next week to make some observations and notes for future excursions.
