I really think the weather is the probelm. Once we have a few nice days the fishing at SPSP should pick up again.

I usally fish the rock jetties, but I might have to try out the surf once. Do you usally have alot of luck fishing from the beach or do you think I would be better off catching bigger fish from the rock jetties

Where you been tuna? Haven't seen you around in a while.

I personally only fish from the beach and I have caught a lot of fish both big and small. Mostly only perch, spot, croaker, striper and flounder. The further you cast from the beach there the bigger the fish.

I had car problems and vacation, so been away. We'll, just got a new car. It's 2 days old and smell like fish already. I was actually at your regular spot cause my favorite piece of real estate was taken. I was actually expecting to see you out there last night. So, it's back to regular programming....

I always see that your spot taken, people pile in that spot and cast over each other all the time. It is quite the show. I was there last Thurs. and I was one of 3 people out there and I was in your spot and caught a bunch of croaker and my first flounder from out there. It's been really busy this week but will surely be there next week...hope to catch a few blues and not the sad kind

I know what you're talking about. If I see someone on that spot and they're not that far out, I'll ask nicely if I could cast over theirs. On hookups, I'll walk towards the right so I don't pull them in. If I'm there first, I'll let others park next to me, but I'll tell them where I'm casting so they don't tangle me up. I'll most likely see you next week.

Thanks for all off the info. Ill probley fish from the beach tommorrow. What size sinker should I use from the beach, and how far would you say I would have to cast out in order to have a chance to catch some bigger fish.

I use mostly 4oz and sometimes 5 oz depending on the conditions. I really don't know how far I cast but I would so at least around 300ft or so. It looks pretty far when I am casting and I seem to most of the time get a fish on every cast out there. I have caught some big croaker and such out there. What sort of setup do you have. Make sure you use a shock leader if you plan on casting those heavier weights.

I use 20# test on my poles with either a 50 or 60# 20-25' shock leader tied to the end. Some would say that 20# test is overkill and may cut down on my casting distance but I prefer to use it just so I don't have any probelms with breaks and such. Especially at SP around the rocks and rays.

I have been useing hi low rigs as well but I want to try a few bluefish rigs or fishfinder rigs and see if I can have any luck. You probably cannot throw them as far as a hi low but what the h*ll.

FishCatcher, I know that I am not as good as most people here. But this is free voice, so I say it anyway right. I think it is best to have different kind of baits. Use blood worm on one hook, squid on other (or shrimp or cut spot). Remember which hook have what bait. Once you catch a fish you know what bait is the best for that time on that day. At spsp, I think it is different from day to day, from time to time.\
Wishing you a good day fishing and don't forget to post .....

Hey LO,
That is great advice. Always keep a variety of bait with you. You never know what the fishies will want to eat. Try some chicken as well, yes I said chicken. Would not have thought but it is a good bait, so give it a try. People have had luck with bluefish and chicken.

Just got back from spsp. I fished there from 6 to 9:30 and caught three spot (all ten inches) , one perch ( about 9 in.) , and two croaker (13 inches). There was fish out there the whole three hours I was there. I used bloodworms for bait ( disapointed with anglers, had some very small bloodworms for $8) Not to bad of a day, could have done worse.

fishcatcher,

I see you're from Baltimore. Next time on your way to SPSP stop at Warren's Bait Box in Glen Burnie B&A Blvd (off 97 near the airport). They have the biggest bloodworms in the area. (410) 768-6977
