Freshwater fishing has continued to hold up very well this last week. Shop regulars have been running down to the local lakes taking advantage of the action. The stocked trout are still cooperating nicely, happily going after small lures such as kastmasters, phoebe, and blue fox spinners. Nightcrawlers as well as wax
worms are working excellent too for those looking to bait fish. Upper lake has also been recently stocked. Several hundred Brown and Rainbow Trout have both been placed in these lakes. Carmens river will be opening up to fishermen on April 1st.(That's also Matt's B'Day) Another great spot that is stocked with plenty of trout.
Flounder season will be opening up April 1st. The shop is stocked up with plenty of flounder fishing rigs. We will also be carrying Clams, Clam Chum, and Sandworms. A good tip for early season flounder fishing is to fish shallow muddy parts of the bay. Typically this is were the water warms up the fastest and fish become
Schoolie Stripers are still remaining active in all the creeks. Soft plastics fished on leadheads will be your best bet for catching. Some other scattered reports are coming in from the western part of the island too. Within these next 2 weeks or so we will be hearing more as the water warms up.
