5/19/19 Fishing Report
Last few days have been the best stretch we have had all spring, hopefully that continues for a while…
Fish are still here and folks are pulling fish. Sounds like you can catch fish about any way you prefer right now. The jig bite is still going some, the crawler bite is picking up nice and the trollers are doing great. Expect all that to continue with the current weather pattern.
Reports still coming from several areas North of the Island, K Can, L Can. and Round Reef all mentioned last few days. They are pulling some nice fish
Bandits and Bay Rats 20 to 70 feet back at 1.6 to 2.5mph seems to be the most common programs, but have heard some as high as 2.8 to 3 already. Still seems to be a variety of colors with Orange Crush, Huff and Puff, Carrot top, , and Frozen, mentioned the most, lately we have started hearing Fruity Veggies and Fruit Dots. Look for the mud lines and work the edge of them, seems like they are always a good place to try.
Last Reports were good coming in for jigging and crawler harnesses as well, right out front, Crane, Locust and Round Reefs mentioned the most . Jig bites have been reported from just about any reef, and sounds like the bite on Locust Reef is still hanging on as well. Variety of colors mentioned. Things are looking good. Hair jigs, and Captain Jays blades as well as crawler rigs with the water temps still slowly on the rise.
Few reports from A and B cans.
Few Reports from local creeks, sounds like they have picked up some with this stable weather, but still not a bunch of info… Need some first hand intel folks...
Congrats to Capt Schannon and crew on the Big Fish on a great batch a fish including Phil Wiseman with a 28” Fish Ohio catch….
