Hook, Line and Sinker: Local Fishing Report and Photos for May 9, 2012

By: John Carty
Affordable Charters

On the piers catching King Mackerel, super size bluefish in the 8 to 12 lb. range, flounder, Virginia mullet, small croakers, & sharks.
On the surf catching some nice size bluefish, flounder, red drum, & Virginia mullet. In the waterways, bays, & river catching some nice size red drum, a few black drum, flounder, bluefish, Virginia mullet, small black bass, a few blowfish, small croakers, sharks, & stingrays.
The water temperature is in the mid 70's which is much warmer than usual for this time of year. We are already having better catches than normal & this warm water should bring the bait fish in earlier than usual. I think we are going to have an awesome spring & summer of fishing because of this. Keep fishing & stay safe.
