Launch ramps around the Island were reopened on Sunday.
The big news this week was not so much about the fishing but rather the opening of public and private marinas and launch ramps. The decision to reopen these facilities was a great relief to the many boat owners who hoped to seek refuge with their families on the water. The change will allow many anglers to prepare their boats for the opening of fluke season on May 4. Keep in mind that the abuse of social distancing in these areas could once again jeopardize access. Be smart at the ramps and around your marina so that we can continue to fish and boat through this crisis.
Striped bass continue to hog the spotlight with a few more fish in the keeper category (28 to 35 inches) showing up in some areas. Blackfishing remains better than at any point during last April’s season, with most of the reports coming from shore spots. Increasing rumors of weakfish and blues are setting the stage for their appearance in the very near future. Most tackle shops are stocked with baits and offering curbside service at the very least.
