Specks on the Increase 

24 07 2016

Tangier Sound speckled trout catches have improved of late. We enjoyed a couple of good days recently while casting   D.O.A. CAL Shads to stump-infested waters near the many marsh islands in this area. Rigged on a 3/8 ounce jig head the shad tail exhibits a remarkably lifelike swimming action that entices both specks and rockfish. Be careful while cruising the shallows near the islands as the centuries old stumps love to gobble-up bright, shiny lower units. Slow go is a must. I look for speck catches to steadily increase, with the peak sometime in late September.

We gotta go down shortly after I get back from Maine (mid August, 17th or 18th). Maybe the following week. Rent Kevin for a day and then get the tin boat wet.

Denny,
Love to get you down here for some of these beautiful specks! I’ve got a few dates left in August, maybe a handful in September. Let me know.
My best
Kevin

Sent this to you in error. Got to see if my buddy Mel has some time and after that if you have some. You’ll be hearing from us.
