  1. We were blessed with the wind laying down giving us some fishable weather. We took advantage of this and did some Striper fishing. It was a finicky bite, but there was plenty of nibblers to steel our baits. We kept our limit of really nice sized Stripers.
  2. We were blessed with the wind laying down and a beautiful Sunny Day on a Saturday. We took advantage of this and did some Striper and Tog fishing. It was a finicky bite, but there was plenty of nibblers to steel our baits. We managed a couple keeper Striper up to 31 inches and a nice Tog. GrandPa showed us how to catch the Striper today. We also caught around a dozen little Black Drum while tog fishing along with plenty of little Black Sea Bass the pesky Toadies. Beautiful Day on the Chesapeake Bay with calm seas, sunshine and good company.
  3. We brought in the New Year with a serious Cold Snap. Tough North Blow Too Rough. Wind Slowed Water Too Cold. The Lower Bay and Coastal Water Temps dropped 11 degrees during this blow. The Striper we were hoping would give us a Coastal Season Bite swam rite by us and ran offshore. Reports of huge schools of Striper have been seen and harassing the Bluefin Tuna Fishing Boats offshore. ( note- it is illegal to target Striper in Federal Waters.) We didn’t execute any Striper trips this Coastal Season due to the lack of Striper in Legal Striper Fishing waters. It’s still nice to hear they are out there, even if they are not where we want them to be. Maybe next year we will get a whack at them.
  4. The Bite on the Southside of the Chesapeake Bay just stopped when it should have been peeking for us, also noticed we couldn’t find any more schools of Menhaden during this time frame. When we were catching Striper we were also finding small schools of Menhaden here and there and watching the menhaden get spotted by plane and wrapped up by the seine net boats and sucked up by their mother ship. The mass of the Big Striper schools stayed up north with the menhaden closer to the Maryland line. I heard Humpback whales where even up the Chesapeake Bay as far as the Maryland State line apparently looking for food. All these years I’ve been working the Chesapeake Bay I have only seen whales west of the Chesapeake Bay Bridge Tunnel once before.
  5. The good weathers holding so team KeyDreams keeping motivated for some more Striper fishing. The bite was Hot again and we ended up catching over 20 Striper up to 34 inches and our 6 man Boat Limit with over and under 28 inch fish. Lots of fun.
  6. The bite was really tough today and we ended up catching 3 Striper with a 4 pound average. Every day is different, some days it’s hot somedays it’s not. It was still fun being out there.
  7. With an awesome forecast staring at us we got team KeyDreams motivated for some Striper fishing. The bite was Hot and we ended up catching over 52 Striper up to 35 inches and our 8 man Boat Limit of over and under 28 inch fish. The First Mate Hooked up the Biggest Striper again today. Lots of fun.
  8. We went out this afternoon and the water temp dropped a bit from the cold blow getting it prime time for Striper fishing. Striper bite is definitely improving. We ended up catching plenty of Striper ranging from 22" up to 37 inches and our 7 man limit of over and under 28 inch fish. The First Mate caught the biggest Striper today. Lots of fun.
  9. Today we had a Father and Son Scheduled by Jason McF------ this morning to get underway at 0800, but at 0745 I got a text saying they were canceling, no excuse and wouldn’t reply or answer. Considering how hard it has been to get a charter together with good weather lately that was cruel. The boat was warmed up, baited up and ready to run so we got team KeyDreams together and went fishing. We caught 11 Striper today and got our over and under 28 inch with the biggest up to 35 inches and Fat, they are getting bigger.
  10. The windy weather we have been experiencing so far this fall has made it a tough season for us, but a nice forecast was looming and My First mate and I decided to go anyway fishing for ourselves. We caught some nice Stripers today and put our two over 28 and 2 just under 28 inch striper in the box. The bite is still tough but I expect it will come easier as more fish arrive in the area and their competitive nature kicks in. The two bigger ones where around 31 to 32 inches. Beautiful looking Stripers. Notice the dog taste testing for us.
  11. My Mate and I went out this morning since the wind and seas calmed down from that big blow Saturday. The Striper bite was still tough but we managed to find 5 hungry Stripers with my First Mate catching the biggest measuring in at 45 inches and weighing 38.5 Pounds. Very clean and beautiful Striper. My biggest was only 10 pounds. I guess that’s one for the girls. Lots of fun
  12. We have gotten out a few times with friends between the 5th and 10th hitting some really nice Striper up to 38 inches and weighing up to 25.5 pounds. These Striper have been Fat and healthy looking. The bite is still tough but I expect it will come easier as more fish arrive in the area and their competitive nature kicks in. It makes it harder to catch fish with the Striper be finicky and soft biting and all boats racing around or cruising on plane along and around the bridge pilings shutting down the bite. Please idle down around other fisherman and along the bridge, and idle away from the bridge before getting up on plane and everyone will be happier. On the night of the 5th I was at trolling speed along the bridge just outside the light line looking for some fish and a boat actually ran on plane between me and the bridge on the light line close enough that his curling wake slapped on my bow. I thought he probably wasn’t paying attention and it was an accident, but he did it again a couple nights later accept I was under the bridge and his wake splashed up on my transom after he went by even closer to the bridge. This is a dangerous situation, other than shutting down the bite for a while and rocking all the boats in your wake, people have been killed out then when someone does this and there is another boat going through the bridge or kayaker fishing along the bridge are in peril. Every pilling is a blind spot. Get away from the bridge to cruise north and south. If you are too scared to cruise away from the bridge at night then you should at least idle down and troll all the whole way which would give you more reaction time to prevent hitting someone. #1 rule out there is keep it safe!
  13. The Striper fishing has been good but they are a smaller class fish then previous years for the month of December. Here is a brief summary of our recorded catches for December 2013. Dec 01st 2013 - We went out fishing and managed 33 keeper sized Striper ranging from 19" up to 36" inches and numerous undersized Striper. Lots of fun. Dec 03rd 2013 - We went out fishing and managed 11 keeper sized Striper ranging from 19" up to 36" inches and numerous undersized Striper. Lots of fun. Dec 05th 2013 - We went out fishing and managed 55 keeper sized Striper ranging from 19" up to 32" inches and numerous undersized Striper. Lots of fun. Dec 11th 2013 - We went out fishing and managed 93 keeper sized Striper ranging from 19" up to 35" inches and numerous undersized Striper. Lots of fun. Dec 17th 2013 - We went out fishing and managed 22 keeper sized Striper ranging from 19" up to 27" inches and numerous undersized Striper. Lots of fun.

  14. The Striper fishing has been really good but the increase of extremely over aggressive fisherman cruising around the bridge structures and over our lines have been routinely shutting the bite down on us making it hard to maintain a consistent bite. Here is a brief summary of our recorded catches starting from November 15th 2013. Nov 15th 2013 - We had a chance to get some more fishing in with the nice weather so we went for it. The winds where light but we did end up having a little rain shower. We did hit one Puppy Drum today and the Striper bite is continuing to improve. We ended up catching over 43 Striper ranging from 19" up to 34 inches. Lots of fun. Nov 17th 2013 - We ran out for a quick trip since the winds where light and conditions where really nice. When we got out there it was more crowded then it has been. We caught a couple Striper and puppy Drum rite away, another nearby boat announced the catch on the radio and the boats came running, starred us down and we got crowded by trolling boats and the bite got shut down. We only fished for another hour without another bight and went home. Nov 22nd 2013 - We went out fishing and managed 31 keeper sized Striper ranging from 19" up to 37" inches and numerous undersized Striper. Lots of fun. Nov 25th 2013 - We went out fishing and managed 37 keeper sized Striper ranging from 19" up to 36" inches and numerous undersized Striper. Lots of fun.
  15. Finally got some fishable weather again after that big cold blow with snow flurries that battered the Tidewater area for a couple days. We went out this afternoon and the water temp dropped a bit from the cold blow getting it prime time for Striper fishing. We didn’t hit any puppy drum today but the Striper bite is definitely improving. We ended up catching plenty of Striper ranging from 23" up to 37 inches. My First Mate beat me today with her biggest fish at 37 inches and my biggest was only 31 inches. I did catch the most though :-). Lots of fun.
  16. My Mate and I went out this afternoon since the wind and seas calmed down and we had a window before the Big North West Cold Blow with Snow coming on Tuesday. We were targeting Striper but we still caught 2 keeper Puppy Drum and plenty of Striper ranging from 23" up to 44 inches. I caught the 44 inch Striper that weighed in at 33 pounds since it was slender but a very clean beautiful Striper. My First mates biggest Striper for the day was 35 inches and also a very nice looking fish. Lots of fun.
  17. We had a Father, Son and Friend out with us this morning a for a quick trip and it was a beautiful day with lite winds. We did still have some residual waves from the earlier blow. We were primarily targeting Striper but we still caught 2 keeper Puppy Drum and a 27" Striper. The son wanted to get his dad out fishing to catch something bigger then they usually catch crappie fishing. Well his dad is the one who caught the big striper, so they where happy. It was a tough bite this morning, and I didn’t hear of any other striper being caught, so we all felt pretty good with our humble catch. That’s fishing and they kept the whole trip a lot of fun as it should be with the rite attitude. Lots of fun.
  18. We had some Family and Friends out with us today on a beautiful day with lite winds and sometimes even Glassy flat seas. They wanted to try for a variety of fish like Striper, Red, and Tog, so we did our best to accommodate. We tried for Striper early with no hits, then the Togs with some tog bights but no hook-ups. Went looking for the Big Reds and Puppy Drum and caught a bunch of Seabass and Oyster Toads. We went back to Striper fishing and pulled 3 nice striper ranging from 20 to 33 inches. The dad on the trip brought the rod he used to fish with when he was a child for his 8 year old to use today. A Generational Fishing Pole passed down from Father to Son. Well anyway the Youngster did hook-up and catch the biggest Striper of the day with that old rod. I had to do some maneuvering of the boat for a while since it was quite a big fish for the young man and it took a while for him to get it to the boat. The Dad was Gleaming the whole time watching his son fight this Striper. Lots of fun, hind site we probably should have stuck with the Striper fishing.
  19. My 1st mate and I went out today since it was so nice and we hadn’t had a chance to fish for ourselves for a while. My mate wanted a Virginia Big Fish Citation for a Red Drum for herself and she got one at 47 inches. We also caught some Puppy Drum and a few nice striper ranging from 20 to 29 inches. Lots of fun.
