Fishing Report from North Eastern MD

Type: Tidal
Region: North Eastern
Location: Kingsville Pond, Carpenters Point, Susquehanna Flats

This past weekend (9/22/12) I fished a small pond near Kingsville. I had my 5 year old son with me. On my first cast to check that the sinker and bobber were set up OK for him this little fish hit the bait before the sinker hit the bottom. It was really cool but my son thought this was going to be how fishing worked at this pond. Consequently after five minutes of no bites he proclaimed "I'm done fishing!" It is hard to explain luck to a 5 year old. I do not do a lot of pond fishing and assuming this is some type of sunfish?

The two rockfish were caught by my uncle on 9/24/12. Both were 18 inches and he limited out by 8:30 AM. He stated he was off the west side of Carpenters Point in the grass bed. He was using a rattle trap. On 9/25/12 he caught a 19 inch and a few smalls. I will be out with him this weekend to try my luck.

The three pictures of the needlefish were caught around the beginning of this month. We were drifting across the grass beds on the Susquehanna Flats and my uncle was using a surface lure when it hit. Very cool fish! It was the same day I ran the boat into a rock off of Sandy Point. The new lower unit was $1900.00 for what I am going to call a "nick" in the cone. Lesson learned. I was "done fishing" that day.
