Decided to give Matapeake a go last night due to the slow goings from SP. Tuna and RedDog were out giving it a go and Tuna said it was slow going once the tide rolled out. So I hit Severn Pier.. and to my surprise the only people there were leaving once I arrived. I stayed there for about 30minutes w/ one bite. I think that was a crab.

Anyways, headed to the Peake and dropped lines in the water about 11p. When I was headed to the pier, the people leaving were saying nothing was happening whatsoever. I only take that in to consideration after I've launched. Back to the lines in the water. Didn't even get a chance to set my chair up and other rod before my first was bending and jumping on the edge. I quickly grabbed and lifted to set (no need to had circles) and reeled away. When it was all said and done, a 161/2" rock. It gave a nice littel fight though. Casted back and a little less than 2 minutes another hit... JUMBO SPOT on and flick'n my strike light like no tomorrow. As the night progressed, they kept hitting. If I would've caught all including what I missed. I probably would've had about 20+Jumbo Spot, Blues and Perch. I ended up w/ about 12 + JS, 3P and 4/5 Blue.

If the weather is okay today I may have to give it another go, since my sticker doesn't run out until 11:05 tonight.

How's everyone else faired in their spots?

SP last night

Hey Huntsman,
Nice to see you had a good outing after all. As you said Tuna and I were at SP from around 6-10pm. It was really good early, catching croaker and spot (some were very large, largest I have ever seen) but after the tide went out the the wind changed directions the bit significatly slowed.
The ranger told us that a some of the people down the beach had some large flounder and blues from earlier in the day. I think I am going to head to SP early tomorrow and try to get me some of those blues. I just don't feel like fighting the beach traffic to get to SP tonight since HT is at 7:48pm.

Yeah, Holiday weekend may make that trip a little hectic. I may fight it anyways, but we'll see. If you see me then you I'm there, if you don't then I may be tight lining elsewhere.

Hey hat,
No he didn't say but I think most of the fish were caught during or around the high tide. The one I know of was around 21", from what the ranger told me. They were catching a lot of blues apparently, largest 18" or so. I caught a flounder out there before on bloods with a 2/0 circle but it was only around 10". Must have been luck.

Yeah have heard reports of summer flounder there before. Don't think people really try to fish for em much there. I sure would love to get me one this year.
