Fishermen in the middle bay region have been venturing out into the bay waters and testing their trolling tackle along the edges of the shipping channel and shaking the bugs out of boats and gear. At times fishermen are reporting catching and releasing some nice fish while trolling large parachutes and bucktails behind umbrella rigs or in tandem.

Light tackle enthusiasts continue to drift in the warm water discharge at the Calvert Cliffs Power Plant while jigging soft plastic jigs such as BKD's or metal jigs.
