    Thanks Gary! I forgot about the Queen Anne's County launch permits for Kent Island.

    A daily permit is $10 and an annual sticker is $35. And yes, officials peruse the landings to check vehicles for the permits. I call them the clipboard people. I see them often.

    Careful around hog island this time of year. Duck season is in and if you see decoys our , it is wise to stay back. Good chance you get rained on with shot. No one out there is targeting you, just happens and shouldn’t be misconstrued as you being the target. Just be mindful of the other sportsmen on the bay. The guys at hog are a serious bunch of waterfowlers.

    It can be hit or miss, but try poppers on the rocks near the breakwater at Kent Narrows. If the stripers are present, you'll soon know. You can reach that area either launching at the Narrows ramp or at Goodhands Creek landing.

    Clousers near the shorelines around Goodhands may also work, but again, the action can swing from very good to very poor. An area I especially like there is the entire shoreline of Hog Island. Clousers or poppers will work.

    Stripers are indeed in the Severn's creeks. I've caught them trolling, but very few casting so far this fall. I have spent several sessions blind casting poppers in back ends of several Severn creeks in recent weeks and have failed to raise one with serious intent. I've gotten swirls but no hookups. However, I know others who have been more successful with conventional top water especially when they have run into breakers in the creeks. Fly rod poppers will work there but timing is everything.

    Good luck,
    Mark,

    Thank you for the great advice! I caught a couple small stripers on a half and half along the Kent Narrows breakwater on an outgoing tide on Sunday morning (in the fog). A success for the maiden voyage of the kayak. Maybe I will try Hog Island next.

    You're very welcome. Fun isn't it?

    Watch out for those duck hunters as Bigbev67 advised.

    Thanks for heads up on Goodhands permit. I fished there yesterday in creek and around Hog island. I didn't have any luck around the island but ran into a lot of bait fish breaking the surface not too far from the ramp at about 3:30 in afternoon. I threw poppers into the action for about 15 minutes without getting a strike. Wonder what my problem was?
