THE YACK REPORT… “THINK PATTERNS NOT PLACES”…

My last 3 trips have been Great! Each one better than the last. Here are a few  things that we have been doing to help keep our catch rate up. The Rockfish have been on the move and chasing bait at the mouths of most Upper Bay Rivers. Almost any creek or river that dumps…

THE YACK REPORT… “IT JUST KEEPS GETTING BETTER!”

The fishing this fall has been Excellent! It just keeps getting better How good is it gonna get? Who knows, I hope it lasts a little longer. Upper Bay Anglers have been blessed with lots of keeper size fish this year. Anglers fishing from boats, shore and bridges have seen sporadic catches of Stripers. The…

THE YACK REPORT… EXCELLENT FISHING CONTINUES…

It seems that good numbers of Stripers have moved into the Upper Bay Rivers and are continuing to provide anglers with steady action. Some of these fish are big too! Anglers fishing from shore in the Elk and Bohemia are catching White Perch and Stripers on Bloodworms. John Rodgers has been finding a few while…

THE YACK REPORT… UPDATE on the BLACK DRUM IN THE UPPER BAY…

Last week I posted about a juvenile Black Drum being caught in the Bohemia River. Apparently, there were more than one! In the last week I have had several customers report catching small “Blacks” on Bloodworms, while fishing for Stripers and White Perch. Brad Rogers stopped by to share this photo of a small Black…

THE YACK REPORT… VERY RARE CATCH IN THE BOHEMIA RIVER.

Wow! Yesterday a customer came into the shop to buy his  second batch of Bloodworms in 2 days, we chatted a while and then… Mr. Dan Porch reported catching a 16 1/2″ BLACK DRUM while fishing Bloodworms from shore on the Bohemia River. Wow! I never would have expected to hear that… Congrats on a…

THE YACK REPORT… GOOD FISHING CONTINUES…

I only got out twice last week and the fishing was good enough to make me wish I had gone more often. Thursday night(10-20-2016) the Chester river produced several nice Rockfish for Ange Harclerode, Dan Kilroy and myself. We caught fish many different ways including “Top-water spook type lures”, paddle-tail swim baits, X-Raps, metal jigging…

THE YACK REPORT… FALL FISHING IN FULL SWING!

The recent drop in water temperatures has really improved the Rockfish and White Perch bite! Even managing an illness I managed to get out on the river 5 times since my last report. Each trip produced good fishing in several different rivers. The reports from customers are very good too, with reports coming in from…

The YACK REPORT… Upper Bay Crabs and Stripers

The last few weeks my friends have had some hard decisions to make, the biggest of which is whether to crab or fish. The Crabbing has been as good as it gets and is holding up well… I think we’ll have good crabbing until Halloween based on the amount of Crab we have now. John…

+THE YACK REPORT: EXOTIC SPECIES…

Even though fishing is getting better close to home, I had my mind on some exotic species that live farther down the bay. Last Saturday,  I went on a fish/camp trip to Buzz’s Marina in Ridge,Maryland with my friends Jesse Rossmann and Brian Pelisek. This is one of my favorite places on Earth to fish/camp…

THE YACK REPORT: UPPER BAY ROCKFISH!
