Summer Fishing In The Chesapeake Bay
Fishing report 6/27/18
Fishing has been great throughout the Chesapeake Bay across most fronts. Tons of croaker and sea mullet have been coming from all throughout the bay and filtering in to just about all of the rivers including the Elizabeth and Lafayette.
There have been reports of decent catches of flounder coming from the usual haunts around the Bay Bridge Tunnel as well as some keepers being reported coming from the inlets, including Lynnhaven and Rudee. Expect these inlets to also produce some Specks and Puppy Drum from time to time as well, although reports aren’t showing anything close to “record breaking” numbers being pulled out in those areas.
Spade fish have started showing up at near and offshore structures like Ches Light and the Bay Bridge Tunnel islands and people are reporting good numbers of larger sized ones compared to other years. You can also expect to see some Sheepshead coming from similar techniques around the pilings and rock structures of the bay.
Large Drum and Cobia fishing continues to provide good action at and around the shoals of the Eastern Shore. These fish can be found either chumming at these shoals or sight fishing for them as their cruising at the surface looking for food throughout the bay. Sight fisherman have reported tons of catches around the Ocean Front and Baltimore Channel.
This time of year is prime fishing for multitudes of species and can produce some of the largest fish of the year for most species you can find here so get out there and get your lines wet!
