June Walk On Notice

31 05 2016

I’ve had a few requests to run some walk on trips as a cost sharing measure. I have two dates open for two or three anglers to get together to split the fee. They are Monday, June 20 and Tuesday, June 21. This will be for a full day (8 hour) trip out of either Crisfield or Cambridge (Location is negotiable). Depending on location, targeted species may include rockfish (stripers), speckled trout, bluefish and possibly flounder. Cost for two will be $275 each, for three $185 each. License, tackle, ice and cold drinks included. If interested, please call me, Capt. Kevin Josenhans, at 443-783-3271 or email kjosenhans@aol.com. It’s a great trip, don’t miss out!





The Fat Lady has Sung

15 05 2016

The game is over, for this season’s southern Chesapeake adventure, at least. While we certainly enjoyed our share of exciting moments chasing bull reds and trophy stripers on the lower bay flats, the weather was not our friend. Cool temperatures, dirty water and more east wind than you’d see during a tropical storm, all made for difficult sight-fishing conditions. ‘Boom or Bust’ is how I’d best describe the action. Still, when after what seems like a thousand casts you finally hook that behemoth drum, and she begins peeling 30# braid from the reel at an alarming clip, the wait is long forgotten. Or, as the boat is surrounded by 40-plus inch stripers who continue to ignore your near perfect presentations, when finally a monster inhales your offering and the battle is on, the wait is long forgotten. As one client aptly described it, after experiencing a mild case of buck fever, “this is not fishing, but trophy big game hunting!” Thanks to all my clients for your patience and perseverance, both those who succeeded and those who did not. This fishery will test the mettle of the most ardent angler. Therein lies the drug. 





Flats Post Season

1 05 2016

My Susquehanna flats season is over and I’m writing this from the Virginia eastern shore. Red drum and post spawn stripers are my next quarry. I’ll post some additional photos as I get time but here is a taste from this season’s flats action.
