Vicky Brunt of Annapolis catches her first rockfish with me onboard the Albert C in Ridout Creek off of Whitehall Creek (in the middle bay). The 21.5″ striped bass was caught inside a boat slip using a 1/2 oz. Kastmaster spoon.

She’s a local girl who just started fishing.
I later went trolling with three spinning rods, loaded with diving and spinning plugs. Caught this nice Rock as I was leaving Saltworks Creek into the Severn River. Nice fight. Fat for his size The striped bass (rockfish) are moving into shallower water.
