Joe G. sent us this nice catch and releas photo and report from Joppa Flats: “I fished Joppa flats for the first time a couple weekends ago and had a great morning on the water. We headed out at first light and had some good schoolie action on the tube and worm and top water. At about 6:15 (an hour before the high tide) I was reeling my white soft plastic in rather quickly to move to a different spot and about 3 feet in front of me a sizable fish exploded on the surface and immediately started taking line. After a great fight up and down the flats I finally landed my personal best striper at 37″ and 18 lbs. I can’t wait to get back up there!”
At the shop we haven’t had a busy morning with fishermen heading out, but Ken Page was one of them that did get out of bed early to be here for the sunrise and top of the incoming tide from the surf along the oceanfront. At about 6:00 am he was rewarded with this 15-12 pounder. Bait of choice: WORMS! Ken also caught another at 29″ that is still swimming in the great blue ocean.
*remember, for all of you that don’t like to keep your fish to eat , we welcome catch and release photos. Stickman says he hasn’t been receiving any to post. So send them in to him at :
and he would be happy to get it on the website with any story to go along.
