Headed to <ACRONYM title="Assateague Island"><ACRONYM title="Assateague Island">AI</ACRONYM></ACRONYM> this Sunday to camp for 3 nights. Is there a place nearby to pickup mullet or can you usually catch or seine for that bait in the surf?

If anyone else plans on fishing around that time, I'd welcome a barter arrangement of advice for beer. My water has usually been fresh.

Looks like high tides are running about 4 a.m. or so those 3 nights.

Praying for an East wind...

Check some of the pullovers on AI. Often times there are small Mullet near the road up in the creeks during high tide.

Any calmer water area in pretty much any body of salt-brackish water may hold bait.

Look around and toss the net!

Thanks for the guidance. I did fish AI every early morning at the beginning of this week and the 25 Knot NE wind was playing havoc with 6 Oz. weights. I guess that's why they call it fishing and not catching. Still a beautiful time without any bugs.

If your rod can handle it, keep a few pyramid 8's and 10's in your box.
