  • Lots of Hybrids hitting on herring and also casting bombers at night. Also producing walleye doing the same.
  • The Yacht Club off Bertrand’s Island has been good, along with Bed Bug Island and Davis Cove and back in the Byram Cove area.
  • Several trout have been caught trolling with a phoebe and hitting on the smaller herring with Pete Pantelis weighing in with a 3 lb 2 oz. Rainbow.
  • While out fishing with his Dad Joe, Ethan Orlando landed a 3-pound 2-ounce pickerel. 
  • Seeing lots of yellow perch and some nice crappies, hitting small jigs, worms or fatheads.
