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

is popular at this time.

fall. Rockfish caught trolling reach sizes of 50 inches if you missed
out in the spring season. Here is your chance at a wall hanger!
