Specktacular Fishing

Walleye Pete had a last minute screw up on his reservations, and found himself without a charter for today, so he put up a notice on Facebook for a walk-on trip last night. He got it filled in 15 minutes, and I was lucky enough to see it in time to sign up.

We left Solomons Island at 7 PM, headed across to the familiar sunken lands of Maryland's Eastern Shore. The day was cool and drizzly, and not particularly photogenic.

Pete rather quickly found a honey hole where we caught some 11 keeper sized Speckled Trout, and a few more small ones. After we were chased out by the tide, we left for other spots
Specks were rare thereafter, but small Striped Bass were found at most of the other places we stopped. One familiar spot held a pretty good school of decent fish, and we managed half a limit of keepers.
