Cold Weather Fishing Dangers

13 02 2021

This true story is a reprint from 2014 but it’s a good lesson for anyone who fishes in cold weather environs. Hypothermia is a real and present danger whether fishing from boat or shore. Be careful out there.

2020 Striped Bass YOY Survey

16 10 2020

Looks like another year of below average reproductive success.

Lefty Kreh’s Tiefest

3 02 2020

Just a quick note to all my fly fishing friends, I will not be attending TieFest this year. I have had a good run and have enjoyed the show immensely over the years, but I feel it’s time to take a break. Stop by and see Captain Chris Karwacki at his booth or attend one of his seminars if you’d like to learn more about fishing Tangier Sound. I’ll miss you all but I hope to fish with many of you, or see you on the water.

My Best,


Fun day fishing the black water.

Great day for the first trip of the year. Had some good fishermen to help me find ’em.

2019 Striped Bass YOY Spawning Survey is Below Average

17 10 2019

The annual striped bass spawning survey is out and it’s not good news. But that’s to be expected as these things fluctuate from year to year. There are currently good numbers of juvenile rockfish from both the 2017 and 2018 year classes roaming the eastern shore river systems. Hopefully, the 2020 conservation measures soon to be enacted by Maryland DNR will be successful in preserving these young stripers.

Cold Weather Fun

9 02 2019

Pickerel, yellow perch, crappie and bass have been biting on the tidal backwaters of Maryland’s Eastern Shore. 45 degrees is the target temperature. Air that is, any colder and most anglers choose to stay indoors. Dress warmly and bring hot coffee. This wintertime fishing really is a treat!
