Re: Great night of fishing.
Sounds like you had a great time. I'm going to try to get into the river tomorrow morning. Probably put in at Cashmans about 6. Marine weather is predicting 3-5 foot seas, so I probably won't get out to jig up some mackerel, and live line. I'll start with mackerel chunks and drift the mouth for a while. If I don't see action, I'll start working up river, with a stop at Joppa, and continue up river until about 11 or 12. High tide is 11.08AM.
I was out last Friday moring trying to find cod and haddock. Started fishing the 140 foot deep water around Speckle Apron and then worked a few spots about 1-2 miles NE. Hit spots at 150, 160 and then 200 feet. At the farthest point, I was 7 miles from the mouth. I didn't do very good and only picked up one Haddock at my first stop. I did jig up some mackerel and headed back into the river, at about noon, to find an absolute zoo at the mouth. Boats everywhere, and it was a mess. People running over lines and others anchored right in my drift path. So, this week I took Thursday off and will try for striper.
