I launched from the Hanover Street ramp on the Patapsco River, at 6:45 AM on Saturday, 10/25/03.

Jen and David had arrived a bit early as we set out to the first stop to do some top water popping, but had no takers so we headed out on the Bay. We motored by the Knolls and about that time the current was still, so we headed southeast toward Love Point. Before we got to Love Point there were clusters of birds diving everywhere. At that time the majority were just off the channel.

David was catching some striped bass while casting a 9 weight with 325 grain sinking line. He was using an 8 count before starting to fast strip in 3’ increments.

The most productive fly started out as a chartreuse and white sinking clouser.



Jen stayed with light spinning tackle all day and as you can see below, it paid off.



The most productive lure was a gold Hopkins, SHORTY, 5/8 ounce, which was jigged off the bottom.

It was a very enjoyable fishing trip, catching striped bass, trout and white perch.

FISHING TIP:
Spooling Non-Stretch Fiber Fishing Line---1st install approximately 100’ of 14# test monofilament line on to the spool. Then, using a double Uni Knot, attach the non- stretch fiber line to the mono. Wind the non-stretch line to the spool’s capacity. Then add a 6’ fluorocarbon leader to the non-stretch line using a 10 x 10 Knot. It will cushion some of the shock which occurs during a hook set. When using this type of line it will help your reels last longer.

SPECIAL TREAT:
It was a pleasure to be able to see and talk to so many TidalFish.com members on the Chesapeake Bay while catching fish. Thanks guys. Hope to see you in 2 weeks.

Tight Lines,

Tom Hughes
