I currently reside on Ferry Point near Annapolis MD and fish the South River from the headwaters to the landmark Thomas Point Lighthouse. i prefer to fish in 3 foot of water or less and throw topwater plugs. Most nights the action is non stop with small resident striped bass under 18 inches. Throughout the spring and fall it is quite possible that your night will include a mid 20 to 32 inch migratory fish. I never keep fish, just pictures and this blog.

I have fished the shoal for 20 plus years and have never caught a speckled trout. That changed today when a nice18 inch fish hit my white twisty at the spot.
Fishing has been slowing down on the shoal. My theory is the fish have begun to move into the river. I will be testing this theory over the next week and will update soon.
