Thomas Points Flats 2013

We were very lucky to find a rental home on Thomas Point Road. I am now literally in fishing nirvana. It has been a very cold spring and the water temp has been in the mid 40's until Sunday when we finally broke the magic 50 degree mark. I can leave our dock and anchor up at "the spot" within 5 minutes, so I have fished just about every day since March 9th. It has been windy, choppy, and downright cold. I have been invited several times to troll this past week, but passed in favor of my quest for a springtime trophy. Tonight was perfect when I left the dock at 4:30. The tide was coming in, the ships had just swung around, the water was like glass, and the temp on the water was almost sweater weather. On my third cast I finally had my trophy...a fat 32 inch male on my trusty Papa Dogg. Unfortunately my Iphone was dead, so no pic. Within minutes of releasing the fish, the wind picked up and before I could make another cast, things got really messy, so I headed in. Great feeling none the less. Very few people believe me when I tell them that you can catch trophy sized stripers on plugs during the spawn off  Thomas Point. I want to assure my readers, that you do not need to go to the Flats for huge topwater action. It can be had right in our back yard.
