Fishing continues to be very good. A fair number of stripers are still being caught, as well as some black drum. Hopefully this trend will continue into this week. Feel free to post your reports, fish or no fish...go FISH!...and have fun!

I went out yesterday afternoon/evening and stayed till about 11:00 or so. I ended up with several skates, a cownose ray, big doggies, and one striper. just about legal size but I didn't measure it, gonna release it anyway. I had several runs/drops too. Water looks nice with the NE. Only a small bit of grass where I am fishing.

Might head back out tonight. Got a lot of work to do today first....

these small sandbars that are moving in can really run with a head but rarely swallow the damnthing to get hooked...at least that's what I tell myself...

My brother and i went out Monday night a couple hours before low tide. We were using bunker and didn't have much luck. He caught a skate a dogfish shark. The water was pretty rough and the wind was blowing pretty good at times. I didn't have any luck until the very end of the night when i was packing it in. My smaller pole went down hard and i knew it had to be a fish from the way it was fighting.

I had a large piece of bunker tail on so figured it had to be a larger fish. Once i got it in close enough to see i knew it wasn't a skate or dogfish and finally when i got it all the way in it ended up being a 32 inch bluefish. My other pole didn't see any action all night with a bunker head on it. But at least i got to hook into something that was actually a fish. Better late than never.

Oh yea i forgot to mention when i was examining the fish i noticed behind its gills on both sides it had to nasty wounds that looked like it was attacked by a shark or something. I wish i took pictures of it to show you guys.
