Spring Fishing Report on Replay

I am putting up another fishing report, but if you have read any of the recent fishing reports, it is going to sound awfully familiar.  You can probably just skip to the end where I make fun of Ray again.  Well, maybe not, at least check out the flier below.  There might be something you are interested in at the sale.


Grumpys Spring Has Sprung Sale Flier


We are having a “Spring Has Sprung” sale on the first day of spring, and the day after the first day of spring, just in case it sprung a little too much the first day.  We have some good stuff that is going to be on sale, and a few in-store only specials for you.  Our next-door neighbor, Yakkity Yak Kayak Rentals is joining us for the weekend and will be having some special show pricing on new kayaks. 

And then there is something you will not want to miss.  John from Scabelly plugs will be here on Saturday, March 20th to sell his plugs and answer any questions you have.  You can ask him about his lures, but you can also ask him how to pronounce “Scabelly” and why his plugs have that name.  He’ll be selling lures too, so you definitely want to be there early.  The shop opens at 7:00 am.


So, how is the fishing?  For striped bass, pretty good on the west side of the bay.  For those fishing bait, blood worms have been picking up striped bass on the west side of the bay and the creeks and rivers that feed into it (sound familiar? 😊 ).  Smaller lures have also been working, Rapala X-raps, small Yozuri Mag Darters, Kettle Creek Shads on light bullet jig heads, small Storm Wildeye Shads, small Tsunami Pro Holographis Swim Shads, Vudu Shads, and small Scabelly Gliders.  Evening and morning are the time to go. 


We have had some warm days, so we expect other areas of the bay to start producing.  They may already have, and the people fishing there have been tight lipped about it. 


We have heard of guys going out for flounder, but not much coming back in terms of reports.  They keep going out though, which is a sign something is happening.  We don’t really blame them for not coming back to tell us they got their 2 fish at 12+ inches for the day.  While that would make a nice dinner at the end of the day, it’s certainly not a brag-able day of fishing.  Still, if you want a nice meal and to catch a few fish that fight much harder than you would expect for their size, we have the bloodworms and clam chum you need to target them.


Ray Painting a Happy Little Accident


Ray took the week off to paint a wall in his bedroom.  The whole week.  One wall.  We can only assume he is using a very small artist’s brush to paint it.  I could make a short artist joke here, but I am just gonna let it slide by.  Ray left the inmates running the asylum.  He is going to have enough punishment when he gets back in the shop. 

Do I even need to mention the hair?
