Attention, all you fisherman. It appears our fishing season has begun, both inshore and offshore. Although live shrimp are still hard to find, the fishing camps reported they are getting shrimp from Florida. Our white June shrimp should come into our area in a few weeks.
We are starting to receive reports about some good catches of trout, bass, dolphin, black sea bass, king mackerel and black fin tuna. These reports are from Rayburn Goodman and John Wheeler of Yellow Bluff Fishing Camp.
Roger Schofield, fishing with his wife, landed 10 trout and one flounder; John Rogers, fishing with Steve Wright, caught 20 trout; Charlie P. Phillips, fishing with Sencky Downs, caught 13 trout; Robert Moody, fishing with Harry Page, landed 9 trout and 12 whiting; Pat Bowen, fishing with Fred Molen and Tony Anatra, caught 9 trout; David Fennell landed 5 trout and 5 bass. Garrett Brison, Lance Muller, Pat Strickland and Robert Bragg landed 8 dolphins, 2 30-pound black fin tuna and one king mackerel. Dean Davis from Kite went fishing for two days with a party of four and caught 26 black sea bass and 56 whiting on the first day, and 40 whiting the next day.
Goodman reported having live minnows, fiddlers and will have live shrimp by Thursday. We should continue to have good fishing tides, so go catch some fish. Just remember, if you do go fishing, to always keep a tight line.
