April 23, 2018:
Over at Rivers End there were reports of schoolie bass in the mouth of the River this week, most of them under 20 inches, they are taking soft plastics and sand worms. Water temps in the River are still pretty low, hovering in the low 40s. Flounder reports have been s-l-o-w, one guy reported catching one flounder after four days of trying. No one has reported a blackfish yet. Trout action remains strong.
