March as arrived

I took Bucktail Willie to the ETEC doctor today for a Spring tune up and bottom painting .once back given the weather holds she will go in and back looking for fish
Fluke will begin arriving any day ,usually the last moon in March results in big fluke hiding in our shallow bays and will bite on sunny days..Trick early is working a bait very slow
Striped bass have been here all winter and will be hungry before beginning a migration
So get your boat ready,make sure your reels are in good shape and have a great year
As far as fluke is concerned,enjoy this years regulations as unless something changes we will see BIG REDUCTION next year

MARCH 5 ,2016

GET ready 2016 fishing season is close…Take time to check out equipment,grease/oil your reels and check your guides for any wear
Yesterday it looked like the dredge pulled out of Corsons and that should allow the fluke to start moving in, they are moving west and will begin breaking through inlets on last moon of this month and season will begin…Largest fish of the year will be caught in April.all have to go back but some real nice fish..Historically April produces and average over 18″ and largest fish of year
Striped bass have wintered over in many inshore areas and will be on the bite through March and April when you find a wintered school. Once they begin to move to spawning grounds bite will slow down bu tonce spawn is complete they will be hungry
Fluke season will open May 21st
