    Anyone that has been around Tidal Fish for any length of time knows that I've been an advocate for the conservation of menhaden. They are one of the backbones of the bay that fish and birds rely to survive. The more forage fish we have, the better the ecosystem and better fishing and crabbing we have in the bay.

    The fight to save menhaden has been a long one. While I'm not that old yet, I look back and realize that we have been been fighting the fight for over a decade. We made some progress. With increased pollution in the bay the need to preserve these forage fish becomes even more important.

    Last week there was an important ASMFC meeting where ...

    There’s been decent largemouth bass action on Susquehanna Flats. One of the most exciting ways to target them is with floating plastic frogs fished over the grass. Big bass will blow up through the grass to smash frogs. At times it can be tough to hook them, but big bass erupting through the grass and sending a frog flying through the air is a pure adrenaline rush! An outgoing tide, and ...

    Cobia are mostly gone but some continue to be caught. They are being caught chumming on the hills in the bay and along the oceanfront and off of the buoys as they head south. While the cobia bite has greatly cooled down, the red drum bite continues to heat up. They are being found by anglers looking for cobia and more are being caught stacked up at the islands of the CBBT. Sheepshead are active at the CBBT along with a bycatch of triggerfish and tautog. There are still spadefish hanging around the islands but they will be moving out but will hang around the coastal wrecks into ...

    Inshore and offshore fishing has been good this past week with a special emphasis with offshore anglers who have been having good luck with the early push of billfish making their way into local waters.

Ken reported that even though we have not reached the prime time yet, billfish action remains very good with good numbers of blue marlin and a lot of white marlin being caught. The occasional sailfish also joins in. The Triple 0s area has been good for normal trolling while ...
