This is our first of many Chesapeake Bay fishing reports coming from the our resident fishing guru, Joe Yack.
Joe is a die hard fisherman and is very skilled at his passion. Join us this year as we share with you his tips and tricks as well as keep you informed to where the fish are being caught!
Here is his latest trip on the Susquehanna River:

This 15″ Smallmouth Bass bit this 2″ pearl shad that was colored with Spike-it Garlic pens to be a fire-tiger perch. The jig hung on a rock, when I snapped it of the rock the Smalley jumped on it hard… and then jumped at least 2 ft. straight up in the air. What an explosive strike! I find the Smallies re-act positively to the Garlic Scent as well as Flashes of color. Both can be achieved by using the Spike-It Garlic pens or dip.
with the first of 3 Walleyes for the evening… Fat 20″ fish
This Striper was about 30″ caught on very light Walleye gear and fought like crazy in the raging current.
(Walleye are) One of the finest eating fish on the planet. We don’t kill many, most get released these went home for dinner.
