Tired of mud in the flats. Fished south of Bay Bridge with lots of action and some good ones.

Wild Bill It will be south of the flats for me now until Christmas or a little later depending on weather. Smallie trips on Susky will be in between striper trips. All fish were released to be caught again by someone when fish are bigger. Fish seemed to be... Show more 4 weeks ago

Flyrob Thanks for the update Bill, sorry for the skunk! I went out last evening and fished the Ock for hicks and were it not for a Mud Shad foul hook I too would have gotten skunked. The water was pretty dirty and think that was the problem. With this... Show more 2 months ago

Wild Bill One 23" striper saved the skunk. Major accomplishment was not getting wet or beat up. Sporty on east side from Rocky south. Did not see another boat. Water quality fair to poor. Two spill gates open as we crossed dam. Cancelled tomorrow. 2 months ago

Wild Bill Same for us. That last stop gave us our biggest fish and fast action. We tried some topwater but I think the dirty water hurt that. Should have taken my Amazon Rippers. Cannot take everything on someone else s boat. Hated to see that day end. 1 year ago
