I usually post these reports on Monday morning, but a last minute decision to go fishing changed that.
Offshore the waters are in the mid to upper sixties and green, with eelgrass floating in it and as many inshore birds like
terns and seagulls as shearwaters and petrels. But there are sharks too, with enough bluesharks still around to provide
action along with occasional makos and threshers. Tuna sightings though are very few and far between.
The last of the early season shark tournaments is this weekend, being held at Star Island on Saturday and Sunday. This is
sponsored by the Boatmanís and Captainís association, and most of the proceeds go toward college money for local
kids. It looks like you will be safe from the sharkhuggers, so stop by and buy something.
Inshore things are going well. If we had last years fluke regs it would be great as there are lots of fish less than an inch
short around, especially out in the rips.
Bass fishing is steady, with trollers and live baiters doing well. Everything is working, but catches are kind of up and
down, with some days and tides better than others. But I guess thatís fishing.
