    Baltimore Fishing

    Can anyone recommend any good night fishing spots (salt or fresh) close to Baltimore that will produce this time of year? Is Ft. Armistead still a good spot? I normally hit Fells Point and Boston St. but nothing has been been biting for me lately.

    Thanks in advance!

    The water temp is around 35 degrees right now and will probably just get colder as the winter progresses. Maybe if you can find some deeep water you might catch something but Ft. Armistead is very shallow. I tried fishing there in March a few years and once I caught a small brown catfish. It didn't even fight at all it was so cold. I hear people catch yellow perch in the winter though. Wish I knew where to tell you to try because I'd go there myself.

    FYI

    The Outdoor Channel is playing fishing shows on Saturdays again. That's how I got my fix last weekend

    Thanks Tracker. I don't own a boat so I'll settle for anything at this point.

    The fishing is pretty much gone for the winter in Baltimore fishing from shore. You can fish for stripers by boat at the discharges. I fish from shore up at Joppa town quarry all winter and do well most of the time. There is a lot of yellow perch there now and crappie. I'm not sure about eating them but i release all anyway.

    Fished JoppaTowne Ponds for many years...even when it was still a sand and gravel quarry (wow, that ages me). Quarry owners began dumping barrels of chems and rubble on the N/NW side but the State cleaned that out when the property was bought, then some reforestation done. The place has aged and "matured" nicely and it's still an overlooked and hidden gem since it has a tidal connection to the Bay via the Little Gunpowder. Fished it last around 2000 just before moving to The Shore; miss The Ponds a lot.

    That's pretty much water under the bridge now and I fished there with confidence since the pond gets tidally flushed and it's been cleaned up. Never seen any 3-eyed fish, even in the early days.

    Enjoy.

    You could try Greys Run for yellow perch and pickerel.

    Greys Run is up on route 40 around white marsh if I remember correctly, I lived up that area for a spell and stumbled across it. Seen some decent bass caught there in the early spring, it can get elbow to elbow.

    It's likely frozen over. It is a good water to fish year round though. Fish near the damn with minnows under a float for Crappie and Bass.
