    Severn river fishing report

    May 21 on the Severn river and it was a nice day to be on the water.We went out to check on the crabs and fish,the crabs are there but slow catching them but the fish like white perch are nice 8 to 11 inch and grass shrimp is #1 bait.We were using a glow-jig below a foat about 2 to 3 foot and if you pop the float it will draw the fish to the glow-jig. We were catching white perch,stripers,and real big 30 pound grass carp.Ho we didn't have bait so just think what how much we could of had if we had bait.But next month the bite will be on and you wont need bait if you are using my feather spinner baits and glow-jigs. good luck and god bless.............woody

    May 25 went to severn river the grass shrimp are in and if you have a shrimp net you need not to buy bait.Let the kids catch the bait it will be fun for them.On low tide around grass shore lines ,piers,bulk heads,rocks and old tires in the water they will find grass shrimp.I hook a shrimp at the bottom side of the tail up through to the back of the tail one time so the shrimp can move on the hook.I put my shrimp on my glow-jig and use a float about 18" to 36" above the jig.After you have made your cast, pop your float one or two times this is a sound that will draw the fish to the target.After you have caught 3 fish stop using the bait and they will just hit the glow-jig when they wont hit anymore start using the bait again.This way your bait will last a long time.How to keep shrimp alive don't put them in water.Get yourself a small cooler and make a wooden frame screen tray that will stay near the top of the cooler.You put a little bit of ice in the bottom of the cooler and you spread your shrimp out on the tray up to 1/2" thick no more and cover with wet news paper one page close the cooler and you are ready.Keeping them cool and damp they will live up to 3 days out of water,in water they group up and they make heat and start dying within an hour. just to let you know we caught 80 white perch up to 11" on glow-jigs with grass shrimp.So good luck and god bless ...............woody

    What kind of fishing license is needed to fish at Severn river? I only have the MD bay sport license. Is that sufficient? Thanks.

    Servern river require bay license. But if you fish on the Servern river pier, I believe it is one of the free fishing area according to the Md DNR free fishing spot.

    White perch

    All right guys the perch are here and I'm going to tell you how I catch them.Right now I'm using my glow-jigs and a float set at 24" above the jig.On cloudy days I use yellow chartreuse glow with a glitter tail , on sunny days white glow with a glitter tail.On cloudy days the fish will move around and look for food but on brite sunny days you will find them in the shade , that's right shade a cool spot on a hot day ,if the tree has shade on the water you will find nice fish there.Under piers is a hot spot for perch because its cool,I like to cast up under each part of the pier and pop the jig 2 times and let it set then do it again and again by that time its gone under and the fun starts. I went out today with my friend sid and we caught about 100 fish from 8" to 13".We took home 60 perch, so if you plan to go good luck and god bless..............woody

    I launch from smihts marina its in crownsville.Coming from glen burnie you take 97 to crownsvelle and go two lights make a left an take it to the end make a left turn and your first right go about a 1/4 mile they are on the right .The ramp fee is $20 and that put you in round bay on the severn river.

    WARNING: they are not skates they are bull nose rays,that's right rays they have a barb in the tail skates don't.If you catch one watch out for the tail, they swing it bach and forth and if the barb hits you you will be sorry.

Any fish put in the boat are yours to take home and I only take one person out at a time because my boat is a 16" big jon lowe boat setup like a bass boat.The perch will come in all sizes not just big.I like to start fish at the crack of day light until its hot.Go to private message and give me your phone #. p.s. no beer on boat.............woody

    Severn River Fishing Report

    I went out today June 7 2010 on the severn river and took another friend fishing white perch.We had a low tide all day because of the wind was out of the nw at 15 to 20 and the water was cloudy,but the fish were there.It was mostly a brite sunny day so the fish were in the shade waiting for food to come by ,so we used my white glow-jig with a float set about 24" above the jig and we cast up under the piers in the shade and pop the jig 2 times and let it sit an pop it again and by that time it was gone.Since the tide was all the way out all day the fish were under the deep end of the piers on shollow piers and from the middle to the end on deeper piers.We also started to catch them on my feather spinner baits,the fish we caught were between 8" to 14" and 1 real big white perch broke me off and I use 10lb line.We caught over 50 today ,but curtis only took home about 40 nice fish.So if you plan to go good luck and god bless...................woody

    Some people are asking if I'm a guide service, no I'm just someone who love's to fish and make tackle that catch fish.I have been fishing for 50 years and teaching young people how to fish for 30 years and loving every minute of life.So when I ask people to pay the ramp,it help's out on the cost to go fishing and not for me to be your guide.But to be just another fishing friend going fishing.Life is to sort not to injoy and learn and fishing is include. So if you plan to go good luck and god bless.............woody

    Woody - Please don't think that I was saying (in my PM) you were a guide. I just wanted to let you know to not post anything on tidalfish about anyone paying for your ramp fee. Some of the posters on their are a bit "off" and THEY will say, by accepting money for the ramp fee, you are guiding.

    I agree 100% with what you are doing helping people others. I do it all the time...when I can.

    Keep the reports coming.....when I can't get out, the next best thing is reading about someone catching them close to home.
