Trout and flounder are beginning to move into the potholes East and South of Blacks Island. Look for white sandy areas in the grass in about 3-5 feet of water. Live Shrimp fished under a cork with a 1/0 circle hook for the trout. and on the bottom using a Carolina rig with 1/2 ounce weight, 1/0 circle hook for the flounder. Also, pearl white gulp on 1/4 ounce jig head working the bottom has been affective for both trout and flounder. Average size trout 15-20 inches. Some good ones up to 25 inches. average flounder is 11-16 inches.

Plenty of Spanish Mackerel in the bay. Fish the ledges and drop offs north of the state park. 5 to 15 feet of water. slow trolling tub rigs with a silver clarks spoon at the end. or drifting and casting a 1/2 or 3/4 oz. silver gotcha plug into the bait schools. Average sizes 10 inches up to 20 inches.
