Captain Karl's Upper Bay/Susquehanna Flats Fishing Report

Welcome Aboard! The fall pattern has started, it is in the early stages but the pattern should become much more consistent next week, as the bass get a chance to adjust and settle into the cooler water temps. We are using the deps Mini Bro spinnerbait in the chartreuse color and the new ima Rock N Vibe lipless crankbait in the fire tiger color to locate the fish on the move during the moving tide. The Roumba is still getting some good quality bass when the topwater bite is on especially in the early morning hours. The outside grassbed edges seem to be best close to the deeper water and also the main points leading into the creeks. When the tide is not moving or extremely high we are targeting the wood with the Zappu Inchi Wacky jighead, rigged with a 4 inch finesse worm. The spinnerbait and Rock N Vibe are working great on the rip- rap shorelines and points also.

As always we are applying scent to all of our baits about every 25 cast’s.

Thanks & Good Fishing, Capt. Karl
