Temperatures are falling and fishing is heating up!!!

Hello everyone, Hope everybody has enjoyed this fairly mild summer we have had this year and is ready for cool nights and fall colors. Here in Reedville, we are starting to change colors already we are going from yellow spotted Spanish Mackerel and Bluefish to already seeing those black and white striped fellas and a lot of speckled trout in the grass beds. Over the past couple weeks, we have tried some early season livelining with good numbers of 1-3 lb. blues and lots of striped bass too. This is a great sign to see these healthy 18-24" class fish already and we can't wait until Oct. 4 to start putting them in the box again. Things are pointing in the right direction for a great fall which we are due for as last year was somewhat of a dud. We did have a lot of action on most trips all Fall into December, but it wasn't the overall class of fish we have come to expect in the late fall. There is lots of bait around and with these rockfish already hanging around in good numbers on the reefs, it feels encouraging to say the least. Flats fishing also is getting better all the time. Last weekend we had over 40 speckled trout in the grass beds, which anyone knows is a lot of trout. They weren't all great big ones, but it was plenty of action with some nice blues mixed in too, great fights on our ultra light tackle. We still have weekend dates available for both types of trips through the end of October, flats fishing in the grass beds, both morning and evening trips, and full day charters livelining and trolling for rockfish and blues. Don't wait too long to miss your chance on some great fall action as we start to switch gears and get ready for the start of rockfish season. Tight lines and hope to see you on board soon!!!
