Launched out of belle haven marina around 4pm and fished till around 1030pm. Caught 8 bass total ranging from 12-14 inches. Most bass were caught on flukes and a white slugo. Close to dark, I switched to a buzzbait and had as many hits as I caught fish but only hooked up with 3 fish. I had one huge hit that sounded like an annoying beaver slapping its tail on the water but it completely missed my buzzbait. A couple of guys fishing next to me thought it might be a snake head. It was a good night, good topwater bite.
Tried the severn river for some specs. Went out with Justin. We were out there for about 6 hrs. I caught a 21 inch spec on a gulp swimming mullet. Had a few hits here and there, probably bluefish. Justin had a few hits but didn't stick any. Saw a bunch of rays swimming around on the flats. Alot of fishing for just one speck. We went to beaverdam after that for some topwater action. The action was hot right off the bat. We went to the right and I caught one right before the bridge. Justin had 4-5 hits and missed, then we started catching them. Caught them mostly on frogs and poppers. I caught a few off of a yum money maker. I ended up with 9 total biggest being just under 2 lbs. Justin managed 6, biggest being a solid 2lbs. The action lasted no more than a couple of hours, then it just died. After we went back under the bridge, caught a few more, had some missed hits, then decided to call it a night. The frogs were so loud, you couldn't even hear the bass smash the bait!

Made it out to Bellhaven Marina to wet a line. I paddled out to a point with some fallen trees and started fishing a fluke. Had one bite in an hour. Went around the bend and found a pretty big grass bed right off the shore. Started fishing a little slower and caught 2 on the fluke. Switched to a Mann's baby 1- and caught 2 more. I saw a few bustin the top so I tied a buzzbait on. Immediately, I caught 3 bass in 5 casts. Kept fishing until the topwater bite died and switched to a 3 inch texas rigged wooly bug and caught 2 more pretty quickly. At that point, thunderstorms were rolling in so I decided to call it a day. Caught a total of 12 bass between 11 and 15 inches in 3 hrs. Since my camera is fried, couldn't get pics.
