Last Wednesday evening Liquid and I took another SW wind beating on the flats. We endured the rough water until the wind laid down to almost flat calm. We managed to bring about a dozen undersized rockfish to hand with as many boils and short strikes. The grass was definitely a problem. If we were able to keep the grass off our poppers we either got a hit or a fish. Water temp was 68 clarity was good. The only thing that was picture worthy was the sunset.
mer47 Good to hear you guys had some action, pretty picture 4 days ago

I'm catching up with my posts from last week and the weekend. 10/09/20 Tyler and I tried the flats and got beat to death with the southwest wind. Pulled the boat and went up river fished topwater and caught one smallmouth and a few boils and chasers. 10/10/20 I waded the Hartford side and with topwater and same result minus the smallmouth. 10/11/20 Again waded the Hartford side with topwater and again a few boils and chasers but nothing came tight. The river was crystal clear and the lowest I've seen it in a while. water temp was low 70s and no bait around anywhere.

This past weekend Fishing Hurts and I again went and camped and fished the Cape Charles area of the Chesapeake and finally got dialed in on the speckled trout. We got blown off the water for most of the weekend due to high winds but the one day we managed to get out we did good. 2-4' of water on the grass flats using white gulps and a popping cork did the trick. Lots of trout action with one flounder mixed in. Caught a few as soon at it hit the water. Loads of fun and got dinner too.
mer47 Nice looking speck Rob, that must of been fun in the back water 3 weeks ago

Went to the conowingo dam yesterday just to see what's going on. 7 small and 0 large gates of flow and not much happening. Aside from a few carp nothing being caught. With the rockfish season closed until September 1st no line of slingers. Weird with such good flow that it was so empty there on a Saturday at that.

Susquehanna River was extremely low today. Can’t remember the last time the line of rocks at the mouth of the octoraro creek were high and dry.
