    "Sweetwater fishing along the coast took a mid-week hit from the weather," said Lenny over at Capt'n Hippo Bait & Tackle. Lenny said early week saw a few anglers fishing, but Wednesday's weather slowed the fishing down later in the week. The one area that has been doing well has been the bogs and ponds off Route 70 which have been giving up pickerel to anglers livelining killies. Water levels got a boost from the mid-week rains and fishing was good there over the weekend.
