    I had some luck on the Severn this morning, too. I put in at Jonas at 7 am and had two quick hits trolling 4 " Z-man paddle tails about 50 yards from launch. Pedaled the Hobie towards the Bay and had a couple of small rocks on the way down. Then nothing for an hour. Went out past the radar towers and didn't see any birds working. On the way back ,in front of the Taylor Research Center both rods went down at the same time (figures!) while in 22 feet of water. Was able to land one feisty 22" fish--the other spit the hook after a minute while I played with the 22 incher. Unfortunately, I couldn't find the pod again and that was it for the day. IMG_3530.jpg

    Good catch.

    It's nice to see positive reports in two areas of the Severn.

    Steve: Very nice! I couldn't go out this week, but am planning on going out next week. Hopefully, as the summer goes on I can start to go out twice a week. Work has been killing me.... Hope it will slow down in a few weeks.

    BTW: I Loved the video!!!


    Best Regards,

    Thanks, Stan! Once you get back out there, I'm sure you'll be on them in no time!

    sorry, this is a somewhat relevant but unrelated comment... I see you have the engel drybox/cooler. Is that the 30qt? How do you like it? How does it do holding striper that size?

    No worries.

    It's actually the 19qt. and I love it! It's very light and durable. I don't actually keep fish in it though, I put them on a stringer and leave them in the water til I get back to my launch. I use it strictly as a dry box since that's the only storage I have on my board. This 25" fish would not have fit in this 19qt but would fit in a 30qt as a buddy of mine owns one and has quite a bit more room. I put a couple single layer tackle boxes and a waterproof case for my personal stuff in it and there isn't much room for anything else but that's all I need it for.... and the 4 rod holders of course.
