April-May: This is the time to catch the rockfish of a lifetime. Rockfish of 50 inches can be caught during this spring trophy season.

May-June: Rockfish are still plentiful with school size fish of 18 to 30 inches. Black drum enter our regions at the end of May during their migration north and can be caught until mid June. Drum range from 30 to 90lbs.

June-July: Chumming and trolling for rockfish stays consistent through June and July. Hardhead (Croakers) are targeted in the evening and provide plenty of action for the whole family.

July-August: Bluefish start to enter the region in July averaging 3lbs. Limit catches of rockfish are being met. Bottom fishing for spot begins to pick up during the day and hardhead fishing at night remains active.
