Autumn on Tangier Sound

3 12 2017

Sorry I haven’t posted much but I’ve been on the water a lot, and by the time I get home the computer screen is just a blur. I often take the easy way out and simply post photos on my Facebook @JosenhansFlyFishing and Instagram @KevinJosenhans accounts. Please check out all my social media sites for current fishing reports. A picture really is worth a thousand words.

We’ve enjoyed a fantastic fall, fishing for stripers and speckled trout out of Crisfield. Shallow water action was great around Smith and Tangier Islands casting DOA CAL Shad Tails in Pearl or chartreuse colors. I can’t begin to tell you how much I love the DOA 4-inch Shad tail, especially for larger stripers. The action is extremely lifelike at slow or higher retrieve speeds. Attach to a 3/8 or 1/2 ounce DOA Premium Jig Head and you have my go-to rockfish bait. Check it out at

Enjoy some of my favorite shots of Autumn on Tangier Sound, with a few bonus pics out of Madison on the Little Choptank.

August Fishing ReportĀ 

21 08 2017

Fishing has generally been very good with wind as the determining factor. Light winds mean clean water and good fishing. Specks, stripers and bluefish have been the mainstay. Crisfield shallows have been hot over eel grass beds casting DOA CAL jigs with 3″ and 4″ shad tails. We’ve also made the occasional trip to Madison on the Little Choptank for fast action with breaking rock and blues. 

Walk On Little Choptank – Mid Bay

I have a walk on spot available this coming Saturday out of Madison on the Little Choptank, just south of Cambridge. It’s a 3/4 day (6 hour) trip from 7:30-1:30. There are breaking rock and blues in the area so we will mostly be running and gunning looking for birds and fish. Your cost will be $225. Call, text or email at 443-783-3271, or

Hot Speckled Trout Bite

Lowe Morrison and his daughter Lindsey absolutely crushed big specks yesterday while fishing the Chesapeake Bay for the very first time. Some pretty rockfish were caught as well. Hope this hot summer action continues. D.O.A. CAL Shad Tails in pearl and chartreuse were the ticket. DOA Lures #doalures

You will be sharing the boat with one other angler. We have been catching lots of schoolie rockfish, with the occasional fish to 27 inches. This is fun shallow water fishing on a beautiful river.

Email or call me for details. 443-783-3271

Some pretty specks caught this weekend. Looks like it’s going to be a good season! D.O.A. 4″ Shad Tail in pearl were the ticket, attached to a 3/8 ounce D.O.A. Premium jig head. Some nice rock around too. Best striper fishing right now is only an hour drive from the bay bridge. Makes a nice day trip for those who don’t wish to travel all the way to Crisfield.
