First Annual Susky Flats Yak Spring Fling

101 posts in this topic

Ok lets get this started.

The C/R season starts on the 15th of March this year, being as that is the weekend of St. Pattys Day, I don't think it would be a good idea to plan a big gathering then. We can shoot for the following couple of Saturdays, the 23rd and the 30th. This way, if all is good on Saturday we can do it again on Sunday. There is a Bay liscense required, cost is $15.00. Parking and launching is free, at a very protected site in Perryville Park. I will post some links later in thread, unless Porter can help out with a couple until I can get to my home computer. As I stated in previous post, I can provide lodging for a couple folks, you'll just need sleeping bags and pillows.

I'll need a good head count, this way I can find a good place to eat nearby and make some reservations.

 

So get the dust off your rods, load up your Yaks, and dress for the weather, and we'll go hook up with some Maryland Rockfish.

 

PM me or e-mail me at rdmiller@wlgore.com with any questions.

 

Let's Go Fishin'

I will keep watching this thread. I'm not sure if I will or will not be available at that time. I'd love to come down and hit some of that action though, no doubt about that. It'd be a first for me. I'd like to explore more of the bay too, so no biggie with the license.

 

 

Keep in mind that Sunday March 31st is Easter Sunday.

Bob, you mean these pictures?

That one was his best for the day. We caught a bunch more like this one I'm holding.

That was one wierd, foggy day out there. Reading reports the following day, it turned out that we were the only ones out there that caught any. Yaks really do pay off sometimes, esp. in the skinny water!

 

As for a Susquehanna Fling, I'd have to suggest late March or early April. Historically, things haven't really gotten hopping until mid-April, but I'm counting on the warmer water this year to jump-start the fish early. First weekend will be a madhouse though, and courtesy won't be high on peoples minds. It's well worth the trip for any who'd like to come. Some of ya'll paddling aircraft carriers need to start your excercises now, you'll be wanting to cover some water to find the fishies.

Thanks Chris, that saved me a trip. You guys pick the date and I'll make all the arrangements. Hey kayakjoe and JonS, you guys up for a road trip? Like Chris said, be prepared to paddle your arse off, you will definately be covering ground to find the bass. Sassy Shads, Bass Assasains and similar lures along with poppers are the baits of choice for this time, 5-7" in length.

JimW, this is on the upper part of the Chesapeake Bay. The flats are where the Susquehanna River dumps into the head of the bay. Prime time fishing for returning stripers. If your interested, I'm sure I can find you a place to sleep for the night. Drop me a line.
