Fishing Reports

Coastal Mid-Atlantic Fishing Report, March 15, 2019 Update: Word from up and down the coast remains much the same with regards to oceanic angling: tautog are the main target, and they’re being finicky.

Upper Chesapeake Bay Fishing Report, March 15, 2019 Update: PERCH ALERT: It’s time for perch-jerking, people! The best reports thus far have come from the Chester above Crumpton, and the Magothy.

Anglers have begin casting from the shore in spots like Beechwood, with some (but not great) success. Reports from… Read more from Upper Bay...

Way South and VA Chesapeake Bay Fishing Report, March 15, 2019 Update: SPRING RUNS HAVE BEGUN! Whew – after a weather delay, it looks like things are getting back to normal for this time of year in the Western Shore tribs.
