Well folks, time to brush off the dust and head out if you haven't been out. The fall season has officially kicked off.

The Red Drum are pounding the shores along Assateague, MD and VA. Go on out and lock onto one of the beastly freight trains.

Bays, rivers, lakes and such:

The cooler water are encouraging more bites this past week, action all over the place.

Be sure to dress in layers, the mornings can be quite chilly with the mid-day getting quite warm. In the evening, the temps fall fast once the sun sets, so be dressed for it!

Now get out there and play, let us know how ya'll fared, ya hear?

in waning numbers over the next two weeks most likely. If we get another big NE blow or a spell of hard west wind dropping water temps through the floor it may happen more quickly.

Just hook the whole head on at least an 8/0 circle hook.

No need to cut the lower jaw off, it gives the crabs something to chew on...

Heads and tails work best for me...both stay on the hook the longest.

Tails dont tend to spin on you and foul?

what I mean by tails is the last cut of meat before the tail.
