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.

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.
