I ran to the Chesapeake Light Tower on my jet ski mid morning yesterday, looking down I could see hundreds of Spade Fish so I could not resist the urge to get in the 63 degree water to spear a couple. Felt good to be in the water! Saw a lot of Spades, a couple Sheepshead and some really big Tautog that are not in season.
I also ran around a lot looking to see if there were any Cobia cruising around.
Have a great and safe Memorial weekend. Thanks to all who have fallen enabling us to enjoy our freedoms!

Water temp still has to come up a little here for me to get in. Of course I don't have a suit. But that is something I love to do is spear fish!!

Summer time with a westish wind in the 5-10 range puts me on CALO jetty. You'd think you were in the Bahamas with the crystal clear waters and abundance of fish on them rocks.

What do spades eat? Seen a few big one working the pylons at the pier and they didn't seem interested in sand fleas or bandits. Maybe they just weren't hungry.

One of my first memorable experiences fishing the salt was at Snows cut catching nice spades from the pilings on shrimp.
