Today was our first fishing trip of the season on the Black Rock and it was great.

65 degrees, a light breeze and plenty of fish.

We caught over 70 Blues and had 7 nice keeper Striped Bass with some extra throw backs mixed in. Diamond jigs and buck tails worked best.

The afternoon tide for later this week and weekend should be red hot. Looking forward to fishing with you soon.
