Monday on the Bay

Type: Chesapeake
Region: Southern
Location: Chesapeake

We tried to fish Monday morning out of Solomons. First stop was near Cedar Point to fish below some working birds. We caught four fish, only one keeper out of the group. We ended up leaving shortly thereafter, due to the waves and wind.

Next we headed to the eastern shore to fish around the Hooper's Islands chain, but found no fish there. I did notice that the water temperatures at Hooper's Islands were in the 53/56 degree range. The temperatures in the main stem of the bay were in the lower 60ís.

Then we headed back over and tried to fish outside of Goose Creek area. The waves were now even worse and we feared being pushed onto the shoreline. Finally we tried the Patuxent River, we saw no action there either. It was a pretty rough day on the bay.
