Perch and Crappie Dates Open

14 03 2015

Some great perch and crappie fishing is happening right now on both the Pocomoke and Nanticoke rivers. We’re catching good numbers of yellow perch and crappie on the Pocomoke near Snow Hill casting 1/16 ounce crappie jig ‘n minnow combinations. The occasional bass and pickerel will surprise you as well. Plump white perch are available dunking bottom-fished bloodworms on the Nanticoke. I have dates open during the next two weeks for the boat, or walk on’s. Email or call for additional info at kjosenhans@aol.com and 443-783-3271. I need a minimum of three anglers for a walk on. Maximum of four. 







Fun Day on the Pocomoke

10 03 2015

Yesterday, I enjoyed  a warm late winter day wetting a line on the Pocomoke River with three generations of family fishermen, plus one! The Pocomoke Slam – crappie, pickerel & yellow perch – was had by all. It sure was nice to see open water for a change!!

Warm Respite on the Pocomoke

8 02 2015

I decided to do a little fishing on the Pocomoke River this afternoon to see if the water temperature had risen above the 38 degree mark of my previous outing. The cold nights of late had me a little concerned. As if reading my mind, the gauge on my Lowrance HDS 7 quickly told me the water was a frigid 37 degrees, as I proceeded to back the Jones Brothers into the dark river water. Well, as they say, I’m here. And fishing doesn’t have to be catching to be fun. Something I tell my clients, on occasion. As the air temperature was fast approaching the sixty degree mark I pointed the bow south and took off in search of anything with fins.

IMG_4657 As I began to cast a 1/16 ounce crappie jig near the mouth of Nassawango Creek, it wasn’t long before a slight tug at the end of my G.Loomis ultralight signaled that something was indeed moving in the icy depths below. After a brief head-shake or two I was soon greeted by a brightly colored yellow perch of about ten inches. As I went to remove the hook from her upper lip the fish didn’t so much as raise a fin. Perhaps being pulled from water only five degrees from freezing had cooled this creature into a zombie like state, or maybe she was just enjoying the unseasonably warm weather as much as I was. Sorry Mrs. Perch but back you go.

IMG_4669 Much to my relief, and enjoyment, I started to catch fish of other persuasions as well. Crappie, bluegill and two overstuffed pickerel – the largest a whopping 24 inches – all came boat side. As the sun started to touch the cypress tops, and with Canadian geese loudly honking their evening intentions, I decided to head to the ramp after a very successful midwinter afternoon. It’s too bad fish are cold blooded. Except for the couple dozen that greeted me in the boat, the rest missed a beautiful day. Pickerel video





Pocomoke River Crappie are Biting

25 01 2015

Had a short scouting trip on the Pocomoke yesterday and found a few crappie biting. The water was a cold 39 degrees but there were a few slow-moving speckled perch able to chase down my 1/16 ounce jig.

Josenhans Fly Fishing – Winter Fishing

11 12 2013

December thru March will find me fishing for pickerel, perch, crappie and bass on the Pocomoke River of Maryland’s Eastern Shore. I have even entered CCA’s 3rd Annual Pickerel Championship. We have some big pickerel swimming the dark waters of the Pocomoke and I hope to catch a few. In addition to a scenic, sheltered fishing locale, you will experience countless numbers of local and migratory shorebirds and wild waterfowl. Contact me for more information on winter fishing this beautiful river.
