It has been another good weekend here on the island. The fish are still cooperating as many anglers have been hooking up with striped bass and black drum. The fish have been coming in waves and the most popular rigs are modified fishfinder rigs and hi-lo rigs. Best baits have been peelers and clams. In the back bay we have seen a few nice flounder being caught too. It's been a long weekend and we will be open at 7 am every day. Come by and get geared up. Tight Lines!!!
