Bottom Fishing is a Summer favorite of many due to its fast action and angler fishing the rod themselves. From young to old and from 1st time angler to professionals... bottom fishing can be a lot of fun. Fortunately for Bottom Fishing anglers Solomons Island, Maryland's location and proximity to the Patuxent River and the Chesapeake Bay make it the Region's most productive fishery.
