Striped Bass South of Fishing Creek

Type: Chesapeake
Region: Middle Bay
Location: South of Fishing Creek

We launched Saturday from Fishing Creek. We went well south before the forecast. 2-3' w/occasional 4-5', putting lot's of action on the lures. Pulled 6 lines - decided it was too sloppy to put out the planers with adequate margin of safety (one person was being evacuated from a small boat by the rescue squad when we drove up!) Marked fish 100 deg true from the jetty in 45' on the west side. Trolled there all day marking fish all day. Fish bit during last 2 hours of flood. 22" schoolie hit green bucktail with yellow trailer 150' back on lead core at about 20' depth. 18" hit white bucktail with white trailer 70' back. 24" hit the green bucktail at 150' back. Just north of the area we caught a 22" on Thursday. Several folks who went south between Breezy Pt and Cove Pt had 1-2 fish in the 26-30" range.
