Sammy and I hit the Pocomoke again this afternoon for mid winter panfish action. We slow trolled minnow tipped 1/16 oz curl tail jigs in 4’-15’ of water to get our bites. The last of the ebb produced the best action we’ve seen in ‘21. The catch consisted of mainly crappie and yellow perch with a couple of pickerel and even the first Pocomoke black perch of the year. Pink was the hot color but I think the 4 degree temperature increase was the main factor that allowed for a successful and memorable day!
Yesterday Sammy and I snuck out to the Pocomoke river for some winter sanity . In between cyber classes we had some decent yellow perch action with a few crappie in the mix. The water was very cold and the bite was pretty light. The majority of the fish were caught deep on curltail 1/16 oz jigs tipped with a small minnow, in 6-12 feet of water during the first off the flood tide. Color did not seem to matter as much as depth of the jigs and a presentation with the current. As the days get longer it’s just going to get better so put on your warm clothes and get out there and enjoy this awesome place we call home!!
