SATURDAY CRABBED IN 5-7 FEET OF WATER AND PICKED UP 29 KEEPERS. ALL ON THE TROTLINE.
SUNDAY MORNING WAS IN 7-12 FEET FOR 2 HOURS AND CAUGHT 2 KEEPERS BETWEEN TL AND 10 TRAPS.
WENT BACK TO SATURDAY SPOT AND CRABBED IN 5-6 FEET FOR 3 HOURS AND GOT 3 DOZEN.
SO TOTAL FOR THE 2 DAYS WAS 66
36 OF THEM WERE 6-7 INCHES
30 WERE 5.25 TO 6 INCHES. LOTS OF JUVI'S ONLY COUPLE OF FEMALES
I STILL THINK THERE IS MORE CRABS DEEPER BUT THE [dang] WATER IS SO CLEAR THE CRABS ARE LETTING GO BEFORE WE SEE THEM. MAYBE LAST NIGHTS RAIN WILL CLOUD THE WATER A BIT.
GOING AGAIN THIS AFTERNOON

Some pictures of Saturday and Sunday action. I got this flounder on a perch pounder jogging around piers. Next year I am going to concentrate all summer on finding keeper flounder. To heck with the bluefish Rockfish and perch.  Back in the early 90s I finished inside the crab pots on Hacketts point. Drift fishing on the bottom and 4 feet of water and one Saturday I picked up 14 flounder. I won’t tell you how many were keepers. But I never fished for them again  because nobody reports catching flounder   Well I caught this big one  on October 21. So I know they’re up here.

Nice job on the crabs and flounder. I used to fish that area a lot years ago and also did decent on flounder, hopefully we will see a lot more of them in the future.

Great report, there are a lot of reports of unusual southern fish species being caught in the mid and upper bay in recent days, including some micro specs in the Elk.

Please give us a little info on your "perch pounders," is it a metal jig or something else?

There will probably never be the numbers of flounder in the MD Bay that we had in days gone by because the population is shifting northward with warming water temps.  Years ago some people did target them in the late summer and fall in E Bay and near Thomas Pt and they had some nice catches.

"Changing Migration Patterns Upend East Coast Fishing Industry

Commercial fisheries on the eastern seaboard turn to new practices and hope for regulatory changes

By Heather Haddon

Updated May 11, 2016 12:23 p.m. ET

Summer flounder that once amassed in North Carolina have gradually shifted about 140 miles to New Jersey—one facet of the northward migration of fish species that is upending traditional fishing patterns.

The move north has sparked debate among regulators over how to respond to changing natural resources that could affect commercial fisheries across the eastern seaboard....."

Way to go. I saw what looked like fog rolling in at the mouth of the Magothu Sunday around 11:00 AM. At 12;15, I saw fog coming from behind Gibson Island where the horse farm is, as I was going to the pier.

That fog was unreal Sunday.  Bay Bridge started to disappear down to almost no visibility below the bridge.
