Happy New Year my fellow anglers!:popcorn: Great to see another year full of opportunity of catching lots of fish.:) Today, I decide to run by Waysons Corner to see if anyone was out there fishing. As I approached the pier, I saw an angler re- baiting his hook for another cast. I asked the angler named Eric if anything was hitting this time of year. He proudly reached into his bag and showed two nice size yellow perch. He explained that he was fishing for fishing for 3+ hours and picked them up with night crawlers on a very low tide. I was so exited to see yellow perch this early in the year, that I decided it`s time to start pulling out my gear and prepare for a great 2016 season. Thanks Eric for showing your catch and conversing with me. I suggested that he join P&S to share his talents. Hope fish with him this season.

Tight Lines...:fishing:

Good news!! I fished there a few time years ago when I lived in East Baltimore. I didn't know there was a pier there. The perch are starting to move up the Marshy Hope also. Happy New Years to you also.

Picked off a couple today between 1-2pm downstream from the pier. I was using a 3/8 oz kastmaster chrome spoon with tail. Super slow retrieve across the bottom to imitate minnows.

I couldn't fish right yesterday morning in my area. Too much floating ice. Going to try this morning in a little while for some yellows, or crappie. Looks like it going to be a pretty nice day/weather, but my Best Fishing Site for my area says it is going to be a poor fishing day. I'm going to try and prove them wrong. LOL!

You have to be very careful about using pet shop "minnows". They're not all the same. Depending on what you buy, they could be illegal to use, as introducing none-native "invasive" species is illegal. Places like Anglers has local minnows, same as you would find in the rivers or creeks. Better to buy them from Anglers or other tackle shops than risk the fines IMO.

I remember when I could catch those big Y perch in Old Man Creek (trib of the Magothy) on minnows or small jigs, but it's been a long time since I've seen any that big. Nice catch J F !

I would like to sit back, take it easy and fish with minnows under a bobber now and then. But I have to drive to the Denton area on RT 404 to get them. A little to far for minnows. I do pretty good with little tube baits and shad darts all my life, but it would be nice to just sit and watch the bobber sometimes. If any one is coming to the Eastern Shore to fish for yellow, or white perch, there is a tackle shop on RT. 404 right before you get to Denton that will have minnows and grass shrimp starting in FEB. That is what the lady in the shop told me.

for your area I would invest in a minnow trap and a fine mesh dip net for catching grass shrimp.
