Fishing Reports

Coastal Mid-Atlantic Fishing Report, 9/21/2018 Update: If anyone is able to get offshore despite the shaky weather after Florence, you’re in for a real treat. Though the weather-windows have been few and far between, gaffer dolphin are showing up all over the canyons, as well as the Hot Dog and Jack Spot, surprisingly. There were some reports of the yellowfin tuna making a break for the south early, but the full-fledged migration shouldn’t happen for another week or two, so be on the lookout… Read more from Coastal...
Mid-Atlantic Freshwater Fishing Report, 9/21/2018 update: High flow from Conowingo has been putting a bit of a damper of the creeks around northern DelMarVa, and with the added rainfall there doesn’t seem to be a bright spot on the horizon as more runoff from Florence arrives, but there are still plenty of places you can check out to put a bend in your rod. Bass have been hitting the usual topwater, Gulp! baits and some artificials, such as small spinnerbaits with darker colored skirts, on the… Read more from Freshwater...

Way North and DE Fishing Reports presented by Clyde's Sports Shop 

Way North & DE Fishing Report, 9/21/2018 Update: The conditions have been on an unfavorable trend for the past few weeks due to the dam flow, and the forecasts for the immediate future aren’t great. Unfortunately, it doesn’t look like the weather is going to improve (thanks Florence). Good news is the bite is hot slightly to the south and water conditions there have made the rockfish action excellent. You’re going to want to chug those topwater poppers very early in the morning for some… Read more from Way North and DE...

Upper Bay Fishing Reports presented by Riverside Marine

Upper Chesapeake Bay Fishing Report, 9/21/2018 Update: The dam overflows have been all over fishing reports and anglers’ complaint lists and there are plenty of logs and branches to smack into right now, so be wary still if you’re fishing out on the Upper Bay! With that out of the way: Chumming has been incredibly consistent, with many spots like Podickory Point, Belvedere Shoals, Swan Point, and the Bay Bridges all making the headlines. There are reports of success in anywhere from 18 to 25… Read more from Upper Bay...

Middle Bay Fishing Reports presented by Seaworthy Marine

Middle Chesapeake Bay Fishing Report, 9/21/2018 Update: Starting up north in the Middle Bay, stripers (plus some big perch) are being caught all over the bridge pilings and rockpiles on a variety of jigs and swimbaits, by chummers, and by live-liners (more on this bite in the Upper Bay report). The bridge has actually also had reports of consistent topwater action. Thomas Point has been bigger news recently, however, for all methods for stripers. Anglers have been jockeying for position around… Read more from Middle Bay...

Lower Bay Fishing Reports presented by We Buy Boats

Lower Chesapeake Bay Fishing Report, 9/21/2018 Update: Anglers casting jigs or swimbaits in the tidal creeks are landing a surplus of throwback sized rockfish plus some keepers into the mid 20s, with the pilings and piers near the mouth of the Pax and around Solomons providing reliable action. The St. Mary's River has also been maintaining a steady bite. Casting around docks, pilings, and rip-rap, earlier in the morning or later in the evening, has been the best. The stripers continue to… Read more from Lower Bay...

Tangier Sound Fishing Reports presented by Siren Marine

Tangier Sound Fishing Report, 9/21/2018 Update: The birds are everywhere, so check for diving flocks which is a telltale for either Spanish mackerel or bluefish, which have been getting heavier and heavier populated in the Sound for a while now. In fact, reports indicate that the Tangier may be the top Spanish spot on the Bay for the time being. But with temperatures falling this won’t last long, so try pulling those small three and four inch gold and silver spoons, behind planers, while the… Read more from Tangier Sound...
Way South and VA Fishing Report, 9/21/2018 Update: Many areas are still rebounding from the difficult weather, and the Western shore tributaries are, in many areas, still a mess. Thanks to that and the recent weather we've been having, reports for the area are still a bit thin this week. That said, with the fall striper season coming up soon, fingers are crossed the waters clears out and we get some stable weather. Until then, most anglers on the Western side are heading out into the main-stem… Read more from Way South and VA...
