Blackfish Season Opens Monday October 5th

It has been hard for a lot of people to get out this week due to the weather with the high seas and minimum beach access. For those who were able to do some fishing weren't rewarded with much, a few bass were caught between 20-26 inches on bucktails tipped with pork rind while walking the south shore. (walking because the four weel drive access was closed.) Prior to "blow" there was a decent pick of nice size blue fish on the north and shore beaches.

For fisherman October 5th start the blackfish/tautog season. "Bulldog of the Sea" will remain open till December 14th. The blackfish/tautog have to be at least16 inches and you are aloud 4
per person per day. Blackfish like to eat crabs wether they are green crabs, blue claw, fiddler crabs, hermit crabs, and even asian crabs. While blackfishing you can use blackfish jigs or just regular blackfish rigs.

Freshwater fishing has been good within the past week or so according to our customers. Live shiners have been doing the damage. Some who have been using the live shiners have been coming in saying theyare getting hit almost every cast with one. This is excellent action for freshwater. We will be carrying live shiners the rest of the fall into the winter if you need them.
