Drum Encounter

Marshall Cruickshank was jigging a half ounce Bass Assassin among the Bay Bridge pilings for rockfish on Joey DiPaola’s skiff Mikey D last week when a big fish hit his bait and took off running. After a considerable battle, Cruickshank landed a 50-plus-pound black drum, quite a feat for a 15-pound spin outfit.


One Less
Snakehead in Lusby

On May 26, I caught a massive 30-inch, 12-pound snakehead right here in Lusby. I took it home and filleted it. I fish for snakehead every chance I get because not only do they taste excellent but also are, in my opinion, the best fight in freshwater around my area.

    Summer fishing couldn’t be hotter. Trolling, chumming, live-lining, jigging and just plain bait-fishing are all producing lots of rockfish, perch, spot, croaker and even a few bluefish and Spanish mackerel. Love Point, Podickery, the Sewer Pipe, the Bay Bridge and to a lesser extent Hackett’s, Tolley’s and the Eastern Bay are all producing. Dragging red hoses down deep and swimming small-to-medium spot are two ways to bag bigger fish.
    Even crabbing has picked up, though that may be due to commercial crabbers abandoning many areas, thus allowing some decent populations of jimmies to resume residence.
