All I can say is WOW lots of fish all around the ramp and near by coves. We fished in the coves near Tutltetown Ramp, C&R over 60 fish from 8am- 1pm. Kept our limits for the smoker. Caught several on panther martin, but most of the fish were caught on power worm. Nothing big 1-2lbs. Will be back soon looking for the BIG ONE like we caught in the past.+



From last year.

Thanks for the report and pics. You're the first one I've heard of with success from a boat. Your fish looked pretty good.... until I saw the pic from last year!

We marked bigger fish around 15-30 ft all over the coves, they should be up in the shallow sometime soon. Most of the fish we caught were at the end of the cove and *form 5-10ft of water.

Couple more of BIG BOWS from last year

It'll be a couple weeks until the bigger ones move in, no spawning females yet. some nice holdover males are showing up, and are ready to go when the gals get there... ;)
