FISHING REPORT WEEK ENDING 4/17/21

 

Fishing has slowed down this past week probably due to the strong winds & gusts. Only had a few flounder catches reported and the black drum on the surf - well, you had to work to get one. Hours of casting and reports that more than a dozen anglers trying to be the ‘one’ that brings to shore the huge fish- such a delicacy- especially for locals -

more coveted than steak. There’s no slack when it comes to Stripers though - always that way when you can keep them. But they love the rough, cold choppy waters.

The netters having a banner week with the drum hauling 150-175 fish a day to the market. Crabbing slowed down as well. Just one of those weeks, when temps start to climb n the water temps remain a steady 53-55 the bite should pick up.

First two photos of a charter - John from Charlestown WV fishing on the fly for flounder with Capt. Tim, but the stripers keep taking the bait. All released unharmed. Second photo of Capt. Tim getting in on the drum action on the beach.

Have a great week.
