Man Your Battle Stations!!!

The blue dogs have moved in!!! The weather’s good with plentiful sunshine and warming temps. It’s only getting better from here… Let’s get in the game!

Numerous reports from both Inlet and surf… The yellow eyed demons are hitting bait, metals and bucktails. One angler reported they were destroying poppers on top water, “Blasting Out!”
Matt Pratt and Victoria Bates struck out with tog but got into the blues. After fishing the North End’s rocks, they stopped in the shop for a new rod. While here they quickly grabbed some tackle, showed some picture proof and headed back to the scene of the crime.” Here’s a photo of Matt with one of the racer blues.

One caller said, “The BL Inlet is going ape $hit!”

Dylan Fisher and Austin Pounds got out on the CA3 today. Austin Pounds reported, “Hell of a bite today on the CA3. Wreck fishing is on fire! We got our limit with bigger fish mixed in. Stepped off the boat and right onto the rocks. Blood in my eyes, on my face, on my clothes… Gators on every cast. Slaying the blues!” Dylan got into the action on the rocks too. He reported, “Epicness! Go get some wire leader It’s game time.” Here’s a photo of Dylan with a bluefish from today.

Jim Crane stopped in this afternoon for some goods. While here he shared some recent intel off the surf. He said, “There’s bass and blues off the mid-island surf. Both today and yesterday they were there. My buddy got one bass and one blue and also lost a bluefish.” The bass are small but the blues are good fighting size!

Dave Hershberger posted a photo of a mini bass off the surf. He got it off the mid island surf on a Daiwa SP Minnow. Dave reported, “This is one ambitious striper. His eyes are bigger than his belly.” There’s other small line siders cruising the suds.

Earlier today Sam got this a four pound tog on clam fishing the north end of the island. Anglers are also finding white chins on crabs.
