Saltwater- We’re still waiting to hear from anglers targeting the shallow water Flounder bite. The ocean-side of the Eastern Shore always gives up the first catches of spring Flounder, but none so far. It should be any day though, warm weather is upon us again. Tautog are still a solid option in the ocean, and they’re  being caught at the CBBT now also. Crabs are becoming more plentiful, so the best bait for Togs is much easier to find now.

Saltwater – Saltwater anglers are facing somewhat limited options right now. The Tautog bite is solid on ocean wrecks when weather conditions are favorable. Most any type of crab is best, if they are available. Clams also work well for Tog. Targeting Tilefish is another solid option. While deep dropping for Tiles, be prepared to tangle with Seabass and Dogfish.
