Wind and More Wind... Had to cancel my charters on Friday afternoon and Saturday morning due to strong SW winds and subsequent poor fishing in the Harbor.

As good as it gets! On Sunday, June 2, 2002, I had the pleasure of taking Oscar Joost, his wife Pat and friends Lewis and Jodi for a great morning of light tackle stripers fishing. What a difference a day makes! We had all kinds of weather to contend with but the NW winds, although busy at first light, relaxed until late morning. The good news is that the bass came up at first light in the anchorage and proceeded to show big time about one hour after high tide. As the tide
receeded, the stripers continued to pursue herring throughout the morning way up into the Inner Harbor. The Joost party lost track of the numbers of strong pulling bass landed and released including a brace of small keepers (kept for the grill). Baby Shad Assassins (Albino Shad color), small pearl and smoke color saltwater tubes, and larger fin s fish on 3/8 and 1/2 oz jig heads were deadly.

Until next week, we'll see you out there...
