My 5 Year Old Caught a 40 Inch Rockfish

Type: Chesapeake
Region: Middle Bay
Location: Tilghman Island

Over the last week, I went out 4 times fishing for rockfish out of Tilghman Island. The best bite seemed to be later in the day, our best day was opening day with ( Phil Clayton, Patrick Enoch, Matt Moscato, Brian Cyphers and myself) where we had 5 fish total and 4 of them over 43 inches (biggest was 47). One of the trips I took some of my dad’s friends fishing and we ended up with 4 fish but the highlight of the week was taking my son Patrick (5 years old) out and he caught a 40 inch fish, we had to leave the rod in the gunnel and luckily the fish hit on a 2 speed reel. He has been waiting to catch “his first big rockfish” since Christmas when I started getting my gear ready for opening day.
