The weather the past week has been nothing short of unbelievable!  I’ll take calm winds, sunny skies and temperatures in the 70s in May….so when it happens in February you thank the man upstairs for the blessings.

I’m certain the mild conditions have got something to do with the water temperatures being on the rise and for the rockfish reports that I’m getting from some anglers that are taking advantage of the more than fishable weather.  I can’t say I’m surprised that anglers have tried for rockfish in the back bay, but I will admit that I’m surprised they’ve caught.

Today the report came in from Captain Jeff Coats of Pitboss Fishing who had his fiancé Karen off of work and said the sun felt too good so….”lets go!!!”  Captain Jeff says even a blind squirrel finds a nut and the below nut (nice rockfish) ate a Big Bird Cropper Roy Rig north of the route 90 bridge.  The fish just missed the 28″ minimum length at 27″ so it was spared from the frying pan…..Captain Jeff had a great afternoon with Karen nonetheless!


My buddy Ayrton Pryor from the Spring Mix II was fishing the marshes north of the route 90 bridge again as well where he landed 5 more rockfish from his kayak.  Might be time to put the Fish in OC skiff back on the water!
