    Default 231 Bridge, Benedict tomorrow December 3

    Any quick tips? I plan to take a mix of gear since I haven't fished the area before. I will have my fish finder so I can soak some bait in the channel for catfish and throw some lures around the bridge itself...

    Lots of blue cats there...occasional stripers...summertime it is loaded with croakers and white perch...occasional speckled trout and redfish...never fished it this time of year- Clark’s Landing is my usual Pax River launch...

    Thanks. Just me and my bait right now. The little bit of rain subsided. Nothing appears to be moving...but I'm here and enjoying myself anyway. Found a drop off from 13 to 25 feet...soaking some bait along it to see if I can find a cat.

    Don’t over look the flats near the drop offs...catfish swim across the flats looking for food...at Mattawoman this spring Kevin, Bill and I were catfishing near the mouth of the creek by the Navy base...there was a deep, deep channel I was fishing...Kevin backed off to the shallow flats some 40-50 yards away and started catching fish...had he not alerted me I would have drawn a skunk...instead we caught a nice mess of good-eating, perfect size catfish...

    Looky!!!!! Second striped bass for me...first was at Point Lookout with a croaker set up....not sure if he was keeping size, as i didn't measure him. I know my kayak is about 3 feet wide...while he wasn't that big, he was sturdy. Only catch of the day and I was pleased. Met a nice guy on the way out...local guy...he told me we were both early...but we both had to get home for family duty. He said at high tide..right around slack...the birds start targeting the baitfish on the north side of the bridge...I will time it better next time. Easy place to launch and close to my house...I will definitely hit the Pax more often.
