  1. The grip of winter is tightening upon the Maryland landscape this week and many types of fish and fishermen are hunkering down for the winter months. The striped bass season in the Maryland portion of the Chesapeake Bay is now closed and the lower Potomac will close on December 31st. Anglers in the coastal areas can still enjoy sea bass fishing until December 31st and tautog season opens on January 1st. It is always exciting when various fishing and outdoor shows begin to occur in January and mark a good time to restock on lures and equipment. It is also a good time to reflect on equipment and swap out that line that served you so well through the past season and be ready for 2017. In short the winter months provide down time to get everything ready for the upcoming fishing seasons and a great time to reflect on what worked and what didn't. As in most outdoor adventures, preparation and planning leads to anticipation which adds greatly to the total experience. . Freshwater opportunities include fishing for chain pickerel, yellow perch in the tidal rivers along with largemouth bass that are holding close to deep structure. Walleye, yellow perch, smallmouth bass and trout are active in the western areas of the state and often provide fun fishing opportunities for those who are prepared for it. The Fishing and Boating Services staff wish you a peaceful and happy holiday season with family and friends. The next fishing report will occur sometime in middle of January depending on fishing news and weather. Cold weather is in the forecast and although it can be troublesome to our day to day lives it holds the promise of ice fishing conditions at Deep Creek Lake and other western region impoundments. The Fishing and Boating Services staff have put together a fun parody on the song the "Twelve Days of Christmas" below for you to enjoy. Source:

  7. ...when do we start?! I'm new to the spring-run striped bass scene and would like some incite on when is a good time to plan for my trip. I was thinking early to mid May. What say you? Thanks, Joel
  8. I'm sure I'll get alot of opinions for this one. What are the advantages or disadvantages between CONVENTIONAL and SPINNING OUTFITS??? I have really gotten into Surf Fishing this year and have spent alot on equipment. I've bought 6 new Spinning Rigs. I have always used Bait Casters (conventional) in Bass Fishing, primarily for accuracy. In Surf, I thought that the spinning would give you better distance, now I'm not so sure. Help me out here, please.
  9. Hi My family and I will be travling to Colonial Williamsburg the first week of August and I plan on bringing my gear and doing some Bass fishing wihle there, but I would also love to get over to Va. Beach area and do some surf casting for sharks. I have no tackle that would be capable of landing a shark. Does anyone know of a place close to that area where I may be able to rent a shark compatable rod and reel while we are in the area. Thanks for any help with this; Rael

Itching to fish somewhere, I know you can bass fish but I hear a lot of reports this time of year some fisherman brave enough to go fishing for perch near the route 4 bridge at Solomons and catch a few all winter long in the deeper depths but do you have to have a boat to get in the deeper channels?

  15. Well its been awhile, but do I have some pics for all you bass fisherman out there. Over Labor Day weekend my family came down. We fished 20 hours a day. We fished for everything Largemouth, Croaker, Catfish, and more. These were the three species we did well with. The Croaker pics are not available yet, and we did not have the camera with us when we caught the huge cats. Although, we had the camera every time we caught a Largemouth. We caught them on a carolina rig with a worm or lizard. Best colors were watermelon and pumpkin seed. Enjoy the pics.
