The fishing here has been steady, despite it raining for about ten weekends in a row. The dedicated fisherman that have been braving the wind and rain are bringing in nice size keeper flounder. They’ve been catching them right before and after the top and bottom of the tide using Gulp, live minnows (of which we have plenty) and spearing. Don’t forget, this year it’s an 18″ minimum with no more than 3 flounder per person.
For a few solid weeks there were some big striper and drum fish caught in the surf at Whale Beach using salted clams and fresh clams. With the water warming up people are starting to focus on kingfish. Bloodworms and small hooks are the way to go for them.
Here’s to the start of summer!
