5/16/14 Crystal Coast Fishing Report

Anglers are catching sea mullet and gray trout in the turning basin and improving each day. Bottom rigs and spec rigs with shrimp bait works best.
Surf anglers are experiencing some blue fish, drum, puffers, sharks and skates. For the best results on the surf, fish the breakers with shrimp and cut bait.
Ocean fishing from the bottom has produced some nice black sea bass, beeliners and triggerfish all caught on offshore structure.
With the warming trend we will soon see chopper bluefish around the Cape and cobia fishing is just around the corner.
