"Last 3 Days on the Water"
The RockHound ran to the Eastern Shore this weekend
to hopefully put some Big Rocks in the boat.
Saturday was slow for us, but we had some action.
It was a beautiful day on the water.
Sunday was more of a Black Sunday for us. We
had only one hit all day that never came tight.
Monday we ran to the York River, and had
fun boating over 40 schoolies up to 32" fish.
We will be back out there Thursday morning, and we
have some walk on spots open for this weekend.
Upcoming Walk on dates;
Friday Evening; Canceled
Sunday; 2 spots open $125.00 per Angler

"Lets go Catching"
Thats right, "CATCHING" the fish are here in great
numbers. There's no better time to get on the water
and land rock fish in the Lower Chesapeake Bay.
Rock Hound Charters Captain Pete, has been out
there the last few days zeroing in on the hot spots.
I've been fishing on buddy boats to get a pattern
down. Yesterday I had the pleasure to fish with
Bill McCabe out of Salt Ponds Marina. I got a
chance to handle a rod, and landed this nice 49"
rock fish. First for me in 3 years to land a fish.
We are about to have the best Bay Rock Fish
season in years, fish in the 50 lb range are now
being landed. And the RockHound is ready, we've
been quiet the last few weeks waiting for them to
show. The last few days I have been fishing personally,
getting our technique tuned up and have done well
locating and landing Trophy Rock Fish.

"Lots of Fun with Schoolie's"
Saturday the RockHound started out behind
the 4th island casting. Bill gets the first fish
of the day, a nice 34" Rock Fish at 8 AM.
By around noon the crew boated 3 keepers,
before heading to the Eastern Shore to check
out the afternoon eel bite.
We made 1 long drift, marking tons of bait, with
a few nice marks on the fish finder. The winds
picked up and we picked up and ran to the mouth
of the York River.
Alone the way we see the birds
working hard, so we put out a nice mix of baits
and started trolling. After about 30 min. we
boated over 25 schoolie's with 2 more keepers
for the fish box.

"November Rock Fish Schoolies"
The RockHound ran walk on Charters the last two weekends. One to the 4th Island that landed only one keeper.
And one up the James River to the M&M which put
4 keepers in the box. We totaled over 40 catches the
last 2 weekends, with only 5 keepers. It was nice to
see our future stock the last 2 weekends.
With the water temps dropping, the fishing is getting
better everyday. The bigger Rocks should be nearing
our local waters soon from the upper bay, and the
smaller fish we released today did have sea lice on them.
We are going to change it up next weekend by running
a Triangle Wreck charter on Saturday the 22nd.

"Its Time to Hook Rock Fish"
Well, with reports coming in of schoolie size rock fish being landed, ( up to 24" ) and the cold front this weekend makes for a great start to the 2014 fall season.
The Rock Hound is ready to fish, and we are all geared up. We will be wire lining, chucking and casting to start the season. The new Mate (Colin) of the "Rock Hound" has over 15 years
experience targeting and putting fish in the box fishing these methods.
As in the past we will be running "Walk On Charters" on Sunday's and Saturday's if available. Also, we will be running
weekday charter specials (Monday thru Thursday) throughout

"Pullage in the Bay"
After being unable to get out on the water, the
RockHound had found sometime to change that. We
ran out to the 3rd island Tuesday in 2 to 3 footers,
Started trolling for Blues and Macs to use
for bait later on Red Drum.
It laid down nice around noon, and put lots of Blues
in the box. Than had a hell of a run on light tackle,
reel was screaming, got it to the boat. Its a
False Abby at the CBBT.
So, now its time to set up for some Red Drum action.
Ended the day with boating Reds sea side of the 4th island.
The Rock Hound is now gearing up for the
"Fall Rock Fish Season"
We plan to step it up this year in October. In the
passed the Rock Hound waited for the Big Rock
Fish to show up to run charters. This year we are
planning to fill the fish box by targeting Rock Fish
schoolie's. We will also be adding other fish species
to our Oct. charters to put more meat in the box.
As in the past, the Rock Hound is committed to giving
Anglers the chance to enjoy a day on the water without
the worries of trying to find 5 anglers to fill the charter
boat. We offer many walk on charters weekly,and like in
past years Sunday's are reserved for our walk on clients.
