Catfish start to show in better numbers with Mackerel. Sardines and livers are the best bets. Smallies are also grabbing baits throughout the area. Craw patterns are key. Striper Trolling and plug casting has been the last few days. Trolling the Angry Eyes and Savage Preys is the best bet.
Warm seasonable weather ahead finally for anglers, and forecast to stay stable. Shore bound anglers are scoring both . The best place to score a striped bass or maybe a sturgeon remains Sandy Beach and the area of the Power Lines, use Lug Worms, Sardines or Shad. Trolling is scoring many limits stripers and occasionally, a 10-12 pounder caught. Savage Prey and P-line Angry Eye lures are key for the trolling anglers.
Bank anglers tossing Anchovies and Sardines prevail for an occasional Striper and nice catfish. Those looking for bigger bites try drifting live baits for stripers cracking the 10 pound plus keeps anglers smiling. Trolling Predators baits colors 8 to 10 foot deep is key as the spring push continues. The Dirty “D” is clearing its name and conditions are improving for Black and Smallmouth Bass in the area. Spinnerbaits and Swim jigs are working in the Hog Area
Where’s the punch bite? Most Blackie anglers are sticking with 3/4oz Jigs and small swim baits paired with Fatsack Swim Jigs. Frog Bite should improve, yet still not consistent. Stripers had another cameo appearance this week yet it was very brief. Catfish and Bluegill also had a improvement this week.
Black bass bite is at a consistent yet, tougher than normal bite. Sweet Beavers and Senko’s drawing a lot of attention. We are seeing a few big Black Bass with ¾ ounce Jigs. Others looking to score are starting to Wake Bait Try Big Bait Lifes Bluegill wakes and DDO custom Craws are solid options.
The stripers are here anchovies and sardines in many areas for bank anglers, Antioch Pier and along Sherman Island rd. Stripes to 15 pounds have grabbed baits . Trollers it’s getting started on both sides with Red Barn being the top choice, if they aren’t there move to the Eddo’s Side. Chartreuse patterns are the best bet.
