We had three boats fishing below Balls Ferry today and the action was steady all morning.  Just about every boat had a net up at one point or another this morning.  The good fishing will hold up for weeks to come, but strong weather events will certainly play a role in the fishing as we move closer to November.  The Barge hole is stacked with fish, but its stacked with boats as well.  Boat traffic will taper off before the end of the month and by November and December the Barge Hole will be rather peaceful and we'll be fishing for the late fall run of Kings.  Lots of fishing options headed our way so call Jaynie in the office to find out more about the trips we're offering between now and the new year.  Thank you!
