September 2 - My new son-in-law grew up bass fishing and was raring to go when he heard about the Pocomoke river. We hit it at first light on an ebbing tide, and did everything right but only got two on worms and two on topwaters - with only one keeper at 14". We Went out for the evening tide at Chrisfield again with limited success. We fished Terrapin Sands, Bouy 9, a slough near Smith Island and Puppy hole and only kept 17 mixed croaker, trout and one blue. Most trout
Needed to shake the boat down after a few months off. Got to the ramp at 3:00. Launched and the boat wouldn't start. Found out the starter cable was bad. Rigged it to work for the day. Tried to find some bass but at 3:00 on Sunday afternoon, the lake was beat to a froth. Tried under the 1097 bridge for crappie - nothing. Caught sight of birds working a few miles away. Ran for the birds and immediately started putting white bass in the boat until dark. Only one throwback. Most were filled with eggs - looks like a few weeks till the spawn.
