Very nice Whaler!!

I do a lot of fishing up and around Spencer & Robert's Islands just below where you were. I launch from Port Deposit and run up. Have had pretty good success over the years live lining white perch. Thank God for my props rock guard though!!

Very nice. I've been taking my boat out of Rock Hall and doing very well but it is a drive and more expensive and complicated then just walking the banks in my swim suit and wading sandals casting.

Well the lower river/upper bay has been just about unfishable due to high water since mid July. I thought I would take a ride down and have a look today. I could cast a mile with the 30 mph wind to my back. The water was high and muddy but I landed 6 bass and kept the 2 biggest ones and got a fat 19.5" walleye as a bonus. Hopefully a week without rain will improve the fishing.

Very nice Whaler!! I'm surprised that much is still going on in that area.

I bow hunted this morning but couldn't resist going back today. Started fishing right about noon and after about 45 minutes only had 2 small 15"ish bass. I was walking the shore line heading back to the truck when I saw some small shad jump like something was chasing them. First cast into that area and I got slammed by a 25" bass. The next 8 casts all resulted in hook ups with nice fish. Water is still muddy.
