    I'm curious if anyone has any knowledge about catfishing on the South River? I can go catch spot, perch and rockfish all summer long on the South, but I have no clue about catfishing and I want to give it a whirl. Any info or recommendations are appreciated!

    Has anyone been fishing inside the South River yet this fall? The 20-28" fish should be moving into the river about this time, but probably delayed because of the warm weather. Once the water cools off, I generally don't make it out past the #4. Curious if anyone has had any success.

    Fished the mouth of the South River for a few hours this evening. No birds, and no marks to speak of, but caught about a half dozen in the 17-19" range and one 21. They were a bit inside of the mouth, around the Red 6. Caught them on umbrellas and Chesapeake rigs, white and chartreuse. I...

    Ran out of the South River this afternoon around 230. Headed out to about 40 feet of water off of Thomas Point, turned south, and set my spread. Trolled towards the #1 (about 3.5 MPH), circled the buoy, released 2 peanut rockfish, and then at 445 had 2 simultaneous knockdowns. Landed a pretty...

    Saturday afternoon, my girlfriend and I headed out of the South River, with no sonar thanks to the assclown who laid his string of crab pots in the float free channel 2 weeks ago, looking for some movement high in the water column. Got about halfway between Thomas Point and the No 1 off of the...

    I've heard some rumors that the yellow perch spawn has finally started. Has anyone been out on the South River? I know there is usually a yellow bite up at and above the Rte50 bridge, but I'll hit the whole river if need be. Anyone have any info or any tips? I'll be the guinea pig this...

    Today a couple close friends and myself ran out of Pier 7 Marina at 530 pm. We brought 3 bottom fishing rods, plenty of beer, and some blood worms from Marty's. The plan was to drift the South River number 4 marker which always holds some croakers, and to catch up with old friends. After 3...

    Weather permitting, this Friday I'm going to run south and fish the Honga River/Hoopers Island area. Does anyone have any advice or knowledge they would like to share? I have never fished that area and I'm eager to get after it. Appreciate any input! Thanks...

    Barring a nuclear holocaust, I will be on the Bay Sunday morning, before the sun comes up. I've caught plenty of fish on the troll this spring, but I'm thinking about breaking out the light tackle and going to the chum. Has anyone had any success chumming the Middle Bay yet this spring...

    Left the South River around noon-thirty on Saturday. Kept to the west side of the channel and put lines in parallel to Poplar Island because of all the bait. I haven't seen that much Alwive activity in years. Zigzagged around for a few hours then moved northeast to Bloody Point. About 330...

    I heading out Saturday morning from the South River. Is anyone consistantly catching Rock on the troll yet this fall? I was going to head to Eastern Bay or the West side of Poplar Island and work all morning, then head over to the channel edge along the West/Rhodes/South Rivers. I have planer...
