fishing report

Finally — fish on!

Anglers have had fun catching a few hickory shad, croaker and one giant, red drum, which was released. Skates and dogfish are also still in the mix. As the ocean temperature continues to warm up, look for trout, puppy drum and blues to arrive next.

A young, humpback whale put on quite a show the other day as it was feeding out beyond the end of the pier. Plenty of dolphins have been around as well.

Whether you want to fish or sight see, come on down to Jennette’s Pier today.
