Me and Jason were planning on hitting Choptank on friday for some spot before joining Catman on his boat for a Saturday trip. With the predicted weather being 10-20 knots for saturday, we decided that it would be best to cancel the boat trip as there was a small craft advisory in effect. So me and Jason decided to try our luck at Point Lookout. We decided to stop by Pax NAS to see how the weather was gonna be since Point Lookout is usually worse. The winds were gusting 30-40 MPH with 3 foot waves. We decided to forget about Point Lookout and try to find a place to fish at Pax NAS. We first tried an inlet that we had good luck last time but the wind and waves were too strong. We then decided to drive around to find another place to fish. We made it to the Sea Wall but the weather wasn't much better here. Any sane person woulda just gone home, but me and Jason wanted to get at least a little fishing in. So we set up one rod each to try our luck. We said if there was nothing there we'd just pack up and leave. We threw out some bloodworms and immediately got into some jumbo spot. Then I caught a small blue on some cut spot. Then I set up a little rod for catching spot. I then got a real nice hit and ended up catching a 19 inch keeper rock on that little rod. It was skinny, but healthy looking. Then Jason pulled up a real nice blue, about 4 to 4 1/2 pounds, his biggest blue to date. The rain and wind kept us from setting up more rods but we didn't need to as we were doing real well with just one rod each plus a small rod for the spot. The fish were biting well all night. I had a real nice hit on cut spot that ended up being a nice solid 24 incher. We ended up catching a lotta blues ranging from 10 inches to Jason's nice blue. We ended up keeping 6 or 7 of the larger ones. The were hitting chicken and cut spot. We also caught a good number of jumbo spots and kept around a dozen large spot while using the rest for bait. We could have easily caught a lot more if the rain didn't keep us inside Jason's truck. We missed several nice hits but still caught plenty of fish. In the morning, the weather died down a little and Jason found another place to fish so we packed up and headed over there. Jason caught a huge 19 inch croaker that we threw back for some reason. He also caught a good number of jumbo spots as well. We also had a few nice hits on chicken that felt like trout but we lost them. We kept another dozen jumbo spots from this location. We called Hat to see what he was doing and ended up meeing up with him and searay at point lookout that night. That pretty much summed everything. Hat had his digital camera and took a few pictures of the larger rock and blue. Overall a great trip. Once again thanks Jason for showing me all of his secret spots. I always seem to do well when I fish with him.

Wrong way Patuxent Naval Air Station is about an hour and 15 minutes from D.C. All you have to do is take Rt 4 East and it will run you right by the Base. You don't have to be military to go on the post but you will need a dod decal. If you don't have you will have to get a temporary pass which will take about 30 to 45 minutes. It is a great spot to fish. You should check it out. If you ever see me posting about going there you are welcome to come along.

You can get a DOD Decal at the enterance? Is this place opened 24-7 and is there a fee to enter? With SPSP fishing hours changing, I'm looking for a place to fish closer to home. Thanks for the invite and info Fisherman.

You can't get a dod decal unless you have registered your car on post and have a valid reason on why you would need one being a civilian. All you will get is a temporary pass so you can enter the post. The only fee there is a one time $5 license to fish on the post which can be bought at the recreational center on the base. You can fish pretty much anywhere on the base 24/ 7. It is a training area for test pilots so some areas are marked Off limits.

Great Post Guys...

WOW :eek: I have to commend you guys... CatMan is right, WARRIORS! I just got back from the OuterBanks and I wish that I had even close to the report that you had.

FL, I was told that you had to apply of the PAS NAX fishing license in advance?!?!? You can just cruise up and and get one (after waiting 30-45 minutes)?

great report and tightlines,
-Surfman

The wait is for you to get a temporary pass so you can get on the post. It might actually be a little shorter depending on the time of day. You don't have to get a license in advance before you get there. Looking at their website all it is is a permit letting you fish from the shore on the base. It is $5. Here is the website: http://nas.nawcad.navy.mil/mwr/

Thanks FL

FL,
Really appreciate the PAS NAX info. Just picked up a new Tica 10' and really wanting to go BAD. Is fishing after a hurricane any good???????

I would think that there would be alot of bait dead in the water for fish to just fill up on. Have any experience after big storms?

Well the only fishing I did during a big storm was last week and that was just leftovers from the last hurricane out there in the sea. Andrew down in Fl I was too busy cleaning up to think about fishing. That is what is going to happen around here if it comes through.

eligibility

I went to NAS a couple of weeks ago but I could not get a fishing license. The guy told me that I am not eligible to get one.
He showed me the regulation and Army civilian is not on the list.
The web site you mentioned I could not find info on fishing licence and the eligibility list does not include Army civilian either.
Like I said before, I used to fish there and the new regulation really bothers me. If you know anyway I can fish there let me know please.
