...... stream and river heads now . Ultra-light (grass shrimp or worm - shad dart & float , small as you got in the stream heads)(bottom dbl. rig - minnow in river heads) ... catch and release 50 (take home your creel if wanted) , have a good day , go back next day or next week and do it again . Work on tide flow if possible , if not just work em .
The Stripers will be up on the Flats soon , catch and release regs. in place . Top water action !!
Smallies heat up on 53-55 degree water temps. ... wish ya luck before that . Hooked up w/ a few at 49-50 , but very , VERY few . At 58-60 they take spinners well (mid May - early June) . Late June they come on in the Yough res. (MD end) , tubes at shorelines/shallow cover .
What I want is a 1/2 dozen fresh water Crappie (12"-16") for the pan ... doesn't get any tastier than that !!
I think I'll just stay home and not fish this year ... yeah right .
