Fishing Report 11/12/12

While most anglers would not say it has been a “stellar” Winter Blackmouth opening, it also hasn’t been terrible. We’ve had fish weighed in for our running derby almost every day, with a couple of days last week producing 3-5 fish each. So far, the leader in our derby is Howard Peterson with a 9.56lb Blackmouth. Make sure you stop in the store before you go fishing and sign up for our derby, its just $10 per person and you can win many times that in prize money!

Areas producing the best results right now are: Point no Point, Elger Bay and Greenbank. Fish just off the bottom with Red Racer, Cookies n Cream or Irish Cream spoons 42″ behind an 11″ UV flasher.

Crabbing is also doing decent, though it is obviously not the windfall it is during the Summer season. People having the best luck are crabbing deep(70-100ft) so make sure you have plenty of leaded line and get those pots in deeper water if you want to have a better shot at limiting. A reminder, crabbing is open now through December 31st, seven days per week.
