Another Pier Fishing Saturday
It was hot and boat traffic on the Magothy was crazy last weekend. So our usual Saturday fishing was done off the pier again.
Plenty Of Water Under The Pier
Their was plenty of water under the pier so that was a positive. The other positive is that like last weekend, you see while standing on the pier all the minnows that were swimming around the pilings.
You know what that means, bait fish mean hopefully we had a chance for some perch. We were lucky and we did catch perch.
We were using bloodworms as bait. Dad had hit our local bait shop.
He picked us up the bloodworms. They were the jumbo’s so they come 6 to a bag. We were catching small fish and only needed small pieces of bait. After cutting up and using small pieces, we ended up catching 15 fish from those 6 worms. I thought that was pretty decent.
Jigging The Pilings
Sometimes I will try to bottom fish off the end of our pier. I almost always end up switch to a light tackle rod and jigging the pilings. It’s a sure-fire way to catch perch.
Then it never fails Ollie wants me to hook a fish for him and then let him reel it in! He considers fish caught that way “his fish”, not mine. Whatever, we were all having fun!
What Did We Catch?
It wasn’t our best day ever on the pier. Most of the perch we caught were small to medium size White Perch. Ollie caught a teeny tiny croaker, he was excited when he heard it croaking at him!
It’s summer in Maryland. Take a kid fishing, go on a boat ride, go for a swim. Eat some crabs, with Old Bay of course. Summer in Maryland is summer like it is in no other place! Enjoy it
Remember you can’t catch covid from a fish or a crab!
