Striped Bass: The cut bait/ liver bite has seen a small uptick this week. Some private batters have reported a decent hard bait bite in the channel that runs across the point near the marina down to the East End.

Bluegill: Medium action for bluegill using mealworms or crickets. A mini jig tipped with some meat can be an extremely productive method.

Catfish: Catfish bite has definitely slowed although you can catch some of these Cats over by Launch Ramp 2 with some cut baits.

Largemouth Bass: Largemouth bass bite has been pretty steady. The water level has dropped significantly so you will need to explore new territory.

Trout: No Action
