OK fisherman8876 give it up.:D Like Striker, I also live in Baltimore. Were you fishing from shore or from a boat? Our forum is about sharing information so come on. I know a lot of spots right in the harbor but nothing close to 32".

Well he wasn't on the 695 bridge pier because it closes at 5 pm. Maybe that park on the other side of the key bridge. Can't remember the name, but some locals there say they catch decent amount of stripers there along with trout and flounder.

A couple of guys that work at the Dundalk Marine Terminal fish their docks and last year caught some pushing 40". It's been a restricted area since 911 so you need to work there to gain access. I know the little dink pier that you're talking about Jason but I don't think it's the same were they were fishing. However since it's so close to my house I'm going to give it a try after work one day.

I live less than 10 minutes from there and it's amazing at the number of rock that the locals catch. One of the prime baits is chicken liver. Fells Point is another good spot, right behing the building where Homicide was filmed. There's just something awkard about catching rock in the middle of the city. A word of caution, don't fish these areas at night alone.;)

The river was so muddy that the spring striper run started and ended in April despite the fact that we know the fish were in the river, Flethcher's posts pictures of the good ones. We usually go down to Fletcher's Boat House and sometimes farther into DC toward Chain Bridge. We catch spot, bass and large catfish but not a single rock fish.

I guess we were not trying hard enough.

We won't eat anything out of the Potomac either.

We moved here from Stonington, Connecticut which sits on the Connecticut Rhode Island Border. We were always on the beach or on the jetty(s). Some years the fishing was superb there. We are looking for one of those years around here.
