Sorry for the wait, but now we're back and 2016 will be promising for fishing and crabbing in the Chesapeake bay and other tributaries.
2016 looks promising for anglers so, gear-up and get ready to fish. Last year fishing in Maryland had its ups and downs with mixed weather, some of the best spots were dry. We took a break from our usual fishing spots to travel further south. A few years back we were introduced to the James River fishing pier and Buckroe fishing pier located in Newport News Virginia. I must say the croaker fishing is plentiful and there is a good mix of other species such as Stripped Bass, Puppy Drum, Whiting, Flounder and Spot.
Strippers have landed!
