Fishing Report April 21st , On the Move
Fishing for striped bass is picking up along the beaches with fish being caught right in the wash. The bass have just turned the corner and started moving into the salt ponds. There have been a few fish caught just on the 28" mark and more of these fish should continue moving in. Most of these fish are very hungry feeding on almost anything they can find (shrimp, clam, silversides). My favorites this time of year include white bucktails and a pearl swim shad. Not much talk of squid moving in locally yet but that should also be happening sometime soon. Tautog bite has still been good inside the bay, the water on the beaches needs to heat up a bit more in order for the tautog to start moving into the shallow waters. In freshwater, customers had a very good week of targeting trout in local rivers and ponds.
