There has been a run of beautiful weather, and the fishing is keeping pace. Rising water temperatures have really kick-started the season and we are headed into May with a full head of steam as fish are hitting hard both inshore and out in the ocean.
Last weekend, the piers reported their first decent catches of bluefish and Spanish mackerel. Blues and Spanish are targeted from the planks with pencil plugs like that old pier angler’s favorite, the Gotcha. Blues are known to like plugs with red on them, while Spanish react favorably to the shine of gold or silver.
