Fish Report:
Current water temperatures are perfect for Smallmouth and the smallmouth bite has picked up as a result. They are hitting on shad colored small jerkbaits, and Rat-L-Traps that are blue, silver & black. The Largemouth bite has slowed this week. While they were being caught in the morning on Senkos and small Jerkbaits with roboworm trailers. Stripers are biting Anchovies and Sardines cut in 1 inch cubes. The catfish bite is on fire right now. They are hitting anchovies, chicken liver, mackerel or just about anything that smells. This week's hot spots for Stripers & Catfish are the Dam, Heron Bay and the upper Narrows.
