November 7, 2018 - This Week
Up until last weekend it was still summer.
Our domestic stripers are very active in the rivers and the bay. The fish are in the 19 to 30-inch range and are caught by trollers and live-liners just about everywhere. The fish are active in the shallows for lure casters by shore fishermen and boaters. On sunny days the bite is best early and late; overcast days extends the bite to any time there is a moving tide.
We have yet to see any sea-run fish in the 40 to 50-inch size, but they are coming.
Some fine crappie have been caught this week in ponds and at St. Mary's Lake.
