Location: DE, MD & Chesapeake Bay
 Finally, a few fish to report from Delaware waters. Striped bass to 31 inches were caught from the lower Delaware River and a few bluefish came in from Lewes Beach. Still a long way from a blitz, but after the past winter and early spring we will take the good ...

EARLY FLOUNDER SPOTS

Posted By Geoffrey Lawrence
Location: West End South Long Island
Head to the flattie grounds. The back waters of Jamaica Bay are a fine spot for flounder anglers in the Sheepshead Bay area. The Canarsie Pier may be worthy of an early season shot as well. To the east, the shallow waters of Amity Beach and Massapequa Cove have been ...
