Stripers Heading East - Blackfish & Cod On Reefs

The city and western island striper bite kept up through the week. We even heard some bigger fish are starting to make their way eastward on the island as well. Don’t forget this can be the best time of the year for the spring blackfish season as the water warms up. Codfish are still making a showing on the reefs and are keeping boat anglers busy when the tog bite is at a lull. The contributors have been out and about too and have plenty of local intel to share in this week’s forecast.
