It seems they are calling for rain every day this week, BUT we all know about the weather report!! The spring trophy season is all but over. We did so well last year with the quotas they raised the limit from 28" to 33" this year. I don't know about you, but that didn't stop us from reaching our limits very early in the day. As the fish started their journey out of the chesapeake anglers were still getting their fill of trophy fish into early May.
The higher water temps this year were a bit earlier than normal.
Anglers are now taking the broomstick rods off the boats and replacing them with the chumming outfits. A few have started and have had some sucess, but this will improve as the season progresses and we start to see the regular summer pattern.
Some good news ( This is coming second hand) is there seems to be reports that seatrout have been caught near Tangier in the shallows. That would be great to see a return of trout as in years past.
So get ready to spring into our summer pattern and dont forget those 3/8-2oz bucktails!! We added a complete line of bucktails for light tackle jigging, casting or trolling.
As always have a great time out there and most of all be safe!
