Mid Atlantic coast

Hey guys if any one is in the Delaware or maryland coast fishing for big blues and stripers is red hot lots of blues between 5 and 15lbs and stripers up tp 30lbs. The wind has not been very cooperative but when i have been able to fish its been good. They wont be here long as the water temps cool they will keep moving south. Got a fat 39" striper at dark last night it wieghed in at 28lbs a nice 20 minute battle on a 9wt. Come and get some!!!

Hi Jim,

Thanks for your report. Stripers are one of the fish I have never fished for.

Hi Frank
Striper fishing can be awesome at certain times it is usually alot of looking and waiting then the weather is another story, the worst weather seems to be the best times to catch them so you need to cast flies into some stiff winds and waves. On the other hand when your hooked up with a striper the fight is awesome even the small ones are true warriors, and the ones that are 20lbs plus make the wind and waves seem alittle smaller. They make me get up at 4am and fish in cold rainy windy conditions, i just wish i had time to follow them up and down the coast. The season in my area is short maybe a 3 week long spring run when they pass by in the spring and again in the fall. I do fish for a variety of other saltwater fishes but stripers are my favorite. if you ever get up this way look me up. I see your from florida i have caught landlocked fresh water striper in South Carolina at Lake Marion they are probally the closest one to you and Lake marion is an awesome lake. Give them a try i think you would enjoy it.

Jim

Hi Jim,

Thanks for the invite. I have friends in North Carolina that live on the coast but have never got up that way. I have been to East Tennessee a few times and one day I might try Cherokee Lake for striper's.

Frank

Hi Bob,

Thanks for the pictures. They tell me you are a fly fisherman intent on catching fish. Looks like a good setup for the beach. When my fishing partner and I was fishing Alaska we had planes, boats, trucks, campers, show machines and everything else that might help us catch more fish. Looking back on the experience I don't know how my wife put up with it.

Frank

Hey sandfly
Nice beach buggy i am a jeep guy myself on my 3rd one, Wrangler full cooler rack with 6 rod holders, mostly fish delaware and assateague island. I have also been known to hit OBX when i can, i own a plumbing business and just can't get away long enough a 4 day weekend is my max. i have NOT caught an albie yet but have tried harkers island at the right time but it was blowing 40 plus so we partied all weekend, maybe next year. i just heard of a 61lber caught near Ship John lighthouse on a boat out of fortescue NJ. That's HUGE (on bait not a fly anyone can do that) it's all good sure beat working
