Surf Fishing Report:
Small bottom fish and small Bluefish.
There are a lot of Spadefish showing up in our pier catches. Spadefish grow up to 36 in. No citations are given for Spadefish. Sometimes they are confused with Sheepshead and Black Drum. They can be caught with tiny hooks and shrimp. I have never eaten Spadefish, but I have been told it is a good fish for the table.
The winds are NW at 13 and the water temp is 75 degrees. A few showers this morning early, overcast, waters still calm and clear.
