Joppa Flats – May 31st, 2007

May 31, 2007

Went with Reel-timer smc968 for a trip to Joppa. Met through the trip sharing forum. It was cool to fish with him and he even helped me with a couple of things with my fly casting.


Fished the entire day on both sides of the tide. You can catch all the twinks you want right now during any tide but the bigger fish seemed to only be responding to the falling tide.


Did not keep count but I think the number would be around 60+ fish between the two of us. About 9 fish were in the 28-33 inch range with the two biggest at 32 and 33 inches and FAT. Probably about 15 or so fish were between 22-26. And like I said, you can catch all the small ones you want, just find them and stay put and they will bite all day. All fish caught on flies and sluggos. I did drop a fish that had to be over 40 today. I crimp my barbs and this fish must of known that. She ran into the river, stripping lots of line, then ran in the opposite direction with the tide, line slacked for a minute then gone. What a fish.


It was a super day to be out weather wise. It was overcast all day, temps just under 70 or so, and just enough wind to keep a lite chop.
