Had a long day of fishing. Trevor, Barefoot and I met Walleye Pete at the Patuxent Naval Recreation Center at 6 AM today for a fishing trip. Pete had canceled mine and Barefoot's trip to the Flats today for lousy water conditions and lack of fish, so we decided to make an exploratory expedition to the Eastern Shore, and Middle Grounds of the Chesapeake Bay to see if the fish had started to appear in their usual haunts. They had. We stopped at numerous locations and fished, and caught fish at most, but not all of them. The slide show tells the story, but briefly, the bridge is the Middle Hooper's Island Bridge, the lighthouse is Point No Point Light, the wreck is the American Mariner (aka the Target Ship), and the backhoe is the backhoe at the north end of Holland Island that I have written about before. Got back around 4 PM, and covered an estimated 100 miles of water.
It was a gorgeous day out.
