No croaker I'm aware of. Plenty of stripers in the shallows and the specks are flowing in regularly in the same areas as the stripers. Drop offs, points, rips, and stumps around the marsh islands have been pretty good. Look for clean water too. I've been fishing around Janes Island 3 times this year so far and caught about 15-20 stripers each time and 8 specks the past two times. All the specks were nice sized (18-22"). Everything on lures. heard some cownose rays have started showing up too.
