Avalon Hodge Podge

April 23, 2018:
Brandon over at Avalon Hodge Podge relayed word that the bridges and jetties are giving up a few schoolie bass and a tog or two, but those water temps are the big story as they remain in the 40's. Anglers are on the schoolies and fish to 24 inches are being released, and some folks have found some bluefish around the same size. Blackfishing is also slow as guys pick away, a keeper or two being reported, but the shop hasn't seen any just yet.
