Since it’s gotten Winterish I haven’t gone fishing for more than a week, so I have to rely on a little “hear say” to provide today’s fishing report.  But before you write it off as rumors and idle gossip, let me assure you I do my best to seek out “reliable” information. Seriously!  Some (most) anglers are always happy to tell you “something” about fishing conditions, or give you their personal advice. The trick here is to learn which of them is speaking from factual information, and which are guided by “something else”.  Well, the best information I’ve gotten this week has to do with Black Sea Bass.  They are abundant, but you’ll have to go out 10 to 20 miles and fish those locations that have produced in the past.  If I had to catch a mess of really good fish, that’s what I’d do today.  Oh, and take a few friends along to increase the number of fish you can keep.  The state limit is five bsb per person. In shore they’re still picking up some speckled trout in the river, inlet, and certain areas in the surf.  Red drum and black drum are not as active as they have been, but they can still be caught in creeks and bays near the mouth of the river.
Christmas in near and the spirit of giving should be in your heart and mind.  You won’t have to think too hard or go too far to find good people in need of something you could give.  Do the right thing.
Giving thanks for living in such a wonderful community,
Capt. Mike Harrison
