The summer pattern for the bay and rivers is starting to develop. Anglers are finding a few birds working early and late in the day. They are having success with the Stripers casting spoons and small bucktails. Please be respectful to others while working these fish. motor up slowly to the near edge of the school, kill the motor and cast into them. The action is fast. This is wear the spoons with the teaser tails are getting the action!! A few larger fish are still being caught trolling but most have downsized the baits. I have been asked by a few if I would rig Tandem a small and large bucktail. of course I would be happy to do this. If you are interesed in one of the tandem rigs please e mail me and I will put them together for you. I am using 40# mono leaders, bucktails are 1 oz and 4 oz or 2 oz and 8 oz. 25' leader is on the smaller bucktail and 15 ft is on the larger. Another way to troll is with a drop rig. Tie a 3 way swivel to the main line, off one of the 2 remaining eyes eye run the 1 oz bucktail with a 4 " shad on the 25' leader. On the remaining eye tie a 3 ft pc of mono. on the end of the 3 ft pc tie another 3 way swivel.run the 15' 4 oz. bucktail with 6" shad off this. On the remaining eye of the second 3 way run a 2 ft pc of mono to a coastlock swivel and attach a cannonball sinker of 12oz. or more. When letting out line let it hit bottom...wait 5 seconds and hit bottom again then lock it down. This will catch the stripers hanging close to the bottom and in a few weeks slow your speed and you may pick up a trout or 2. Work the ledges in an "S" pattern. The croaker bite has turned on in the rivers!! Still not hot and heavy but they are there. small jigs or peeler are working on standard 2 hook bottom rigs
We have heard reports of a few yellowfin taken offshore around baltimore Canyon. It should only be 2 weeks or so before the tuna move in a little closer/
