do u catch white perch around port deposit and the flates I never just went for perch do you fish for them around piers
If only targeting the early White Perch(larger size) run just north of the 95 Susky bridge(mile South of Port Deposit) is a hot spot around mid April in the 15-25 foot of channel edges. You will see a fleet of boat there if hitting. To fish for striper bait size...I suggest shallower water around piers on Port Deposit side. They pretty much are there up thru July/August. Also in front of Lapidum Ramp(across from Port Deposit) West side of river is also a good area for catching bait size white perch all the way up to Spencer & Roberts Islands.
What I liked about it was we could sit on our aft deck or on the dock and look down the Northeast river and up the Sassafras on a clear day. We were at the Marina for 8 years. Is Phil still running the place?
When you are up to your butt in alligators, it is hard to remember your intent was to drain the swamp. Stay focused!
QH...forgot to mention that if you have a fiberglass boat I suggest staying below Spencer & Robert's Islands just above Port Deposit. While the striper fishing there is the best...know many who cracked their hauls in the thousands of submerged rock structures in/around the islands. If alum boat...a rock guard is a must unless you have a jet.
