Bottom fished the Lower rapp from Norris Br. to Butlers' Hole on Sat. with a few fish to show for our effort. We did have a flurry of activity in the afternoon near Mosquito Is., bailing medium sized croakers and 11-12" trout for about 45 minutes in 35-40 ft. of water. Went across the bay Sun. to find a decent drift however flattie none; but a HUGE croaker bite - all you wanted, and good size - on the squid strips/flicker hook combo. My son waxed us!! Fun, but a long ride for just croaker. Water temp was 61 deg at b42/cell area. A few weeks yet, as it would seem.......aye...aye.
