Eels at night, always right!

We keep telling you that the fish are still here yet no one goes fishing once it goes below 50 degrees. We have a small group, a very small group of fishermen that are still out there putting in the time and effort in their quest for stripers. Two such fishermen are John and Joe.

8/25 – Isle of Plum Report

Yes, Whitey is still being seen in the area. Mostly seen by boat fishermen and then emotionally by surf fishermen at night that report to us that when they have a striper on it isnt behaving the usual way. But aside from our new resident fish eater in the southern end of plum,
