Rockfish Weekend

Type: Chesapeake
Region: Southern
Location: North Beach, Chesapeake Bay

I fished out of Annapolis on Saturday afternoon with a great bunch of guys. We looked for fish under birds without any luck. Chasing the birds down to North Beach, we found fish on the depth finder in 25/30 of water off shore. So, we began casting large jigs and pulling fish off the bottom. We would go back up-wind and continue the drift. We all limited out plus we tagged 12 fish too, up to 25 1/4. I caught 13 fish, the biggest being 28 1/2. It was amazing and why I try to live everyday on the water.
