Does anyone else feel like its like 9:00 at night right now?  Me too, but its 6:30.  Even though the end to Daylight Savings Time is only an hour it certainly feels like way more than that.  Days are also getting shorter as we move further into the fall so daylight fishing time is getting less and less.  There are still a bunch of fish around, some of which are being caught at night, so optimize your time on the water and catch em up.

Captain Chris Mizurak of the Angler was out on the ocean today for some fall bottom fishing and reported a very good day.  Captain Chris reported lots of limits of sea bass around the rail with fish up to 3 pounds and some nice flounder mixed in there up to 5 pounds.  Looks like the next fishable days for the fleet will be Monday/Tuesday of next week.

My phone buzzed today with a message from Big Bird Cropper who also used today’s nice weather to toss some of his World Famous Roy Rigs with his daughter Patricia.  Patricia and Bird fished the route 50 bridge where they released a bunch of undersized rockfish.

Captain Brian Behe couldn’t pass up the nice weather today either so he traveled to the Pocomoke Sound in his Buffalo Hunter Guide Service and had some fun releasing some schoolie rockfish.

My buddy Eric Sexton has been having some luck with stripers in the “super” south bay recently.  Eric has had good luck releasing fish up to about 26″.

The crew of Spring Mix II has been fishing the Florida Keys on board their smaller boat the Micro Mix and having a great time.  Captain Chris Watkwoski, Captain Steve Selander and mate Ayrton “The Kayak Kid” Pryor have been catching sailfish, barracuda, grouper and blackfin tuna.
