    I was there for a week (4/10-4/18). 2 of us fishing.

    We tried about every area we could think of. We used all tactics we knew and caught 7 fish in a week.
    1- #24 Blue
    1-#20 Blue----both caught on whiting in 9 ft

    2-#18 blue
    1-#15 blue -- both on cut hering
    1 #12 blue -- bream head
    2- #4 channels on liver

    All our fishing was above I-95. we tried shallow near tree's.
    we tried deep. we tried drifting. it was a tough week but it wasn't too bad because i was fishing.

    we did catch a few shellcracker and bream. not enough to say they were biting but 15 -20 during the week was a few.

    we tried all kinds of bait for cats but they would not but bite. It was like they had lockjaw.

    on an interesting note....
    the #18 & #15 blue were full of snails.

    the #18 blue had over 200 snails in its stomach ( yes, i counted them as i was amazed a fish could hold that many.) it also had a green leaf and a plastic candy wrapper in its stomach.:eek:oooh:

    the other fish had about half that amount and both were caught at night...maybe a feeding trend????
