Sharing a few beautiful pictures from, a client, Mitch Adolph. We made some trips to specifically photograph pelicans. Mr. Adolph won the Grand Prize, first place, and third place "summer" in the 2016 Maryland DNR Photo Contest. Here are a few more pictures.

Fishing

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.

Awesome weather, but not the best for gunning, colder weather would be nice. A few hundred bufflehead on the Honga.

Beautiful day. Wishing we had packed a lunch for the trip.

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.

Fishing Report

Sneak peek at what's in the marshes. We fished all week, mostly perch and rockfish in different areas. What is surprising, (consistently) is the lack of other fish, no hardheads, spot, eels, trout, or black drum.

A Day Fishing

Getting ready for a full day of fishing, brings to me, all the excitement and anticipation of heading out into the creeks, and catching fish. Like an adventure of Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn,  is  how we try to enjoy the summer and fishing.

As we started out, Norah was asking all the right questions, what is the tide doing, where are we going to fish first, what points we were going to work, I was proud of her. 

Looking for any signs of life.

The bites started out slow, until the tide started to ebb. There was no shortage mid-size rockfish, 18 inch to 22 inches. The were a few perch, 6 inch to 11 inches, no speckled trout, and lots of small hardhead, 10 inch to 12 inch range. We did catch several Atlantic Stingrays, and a couple blunt nose stingrays. 

A lot of 18 inch rockfish were caught and released.  June 7, 2015
