Saltwater- The hottest bite in the bay continues to be the Cobia bite. On sunny, calm days, sight casting is the way to go. Cloudy, or breezy days, it seems the Chummers do much better.

Anglers can expect to tangle with fish from 40 lbs to 80 lbs realistically. The Spadefish action at the CBBT is heavy. Anglers are returning to the docks with good sized Spades and plenty … Read More »

Chumming and sight casting are both productive, however, crowds are to be expected even on week days. Live Eels work well for both casting to sighted fish or for bait while chumming. Also thick, are the Red Drum still. Enormous schools are sometimes being spotted on both sides of the CBBT. Swimbaits, bucktails, and live bait such as small Croaker … Read More »
