Went out on Sunday out of West Point based on the fishing report in Friday's RTD. Started out looking around to see where the other boats were and found most folks down the river around the light tower. We pulled up and marked lots of fish in about 28-30 foot of water. Dropped anchor and dropped lines with both squid and bloodworms alternated to see what worked. Within minutes we had fish on and in the cooler. Many times we had three or four fish on at the same time. We caught around 60 croakers there and had 6 or 7 well over 2 lbs and one was 2 1/2 lbs. We then moved back towards town and continued to catch fish in 16-17 feet of water. By the time it was all said and done we had caught and released over 120 fish and brought about 45 home for meals and for strip bait for flounder. What an awesome day on the water. It was slick like a bathtub and sunny. If anyone says that the fish are not here they are crazy. Good luck and keep those lines tight.
