    Brenden at Captree Fuel Bait and Tackle Shop on Captree Island reported very solid striper action with bass to 36 pounds reported from the inlets. There are a lot of bluefish from 3 to 15 pounds. Move around and find the fat ones! Weakfish are also in the Channel, those jellyworms and "Big D Tubes" have been great for trolling weakfish and stripers. Bluefish have been blitzing the Captree Piers, with a solid mix of fluke as well.

    Brenden at Captree Fuel Bait and Tackle Shop on Captree Island reported blues showed along with some larger bass this past week. The shop has weighed in multiple blues from local beaches and boats up to 16 pounds. Shop regular Keith B. came in with an 11.45 pounder he caught from the suds. Larger fluke have been caught this week, with Chino catching a 7.28-pounder. Every week we are getting closer to those double digit fluke. Spearing and squid have been out fishing Gulp on bucktails this week. It's always a great idea to keep a few different baitsjigs on hand while fishing in the early season for fluke.
