FRESHWATER DRUM

Lots of sheephead are being caught here mostly on soft shells, but one guy actually caught two by casting lures yesterday in the harbor here.

YELLOW PERCH

Perch are driving the guys crazy because they are eating the bait while they're trying to fish for the sheephead. Maybe that's a good sign that they will be around for the opener this weekend.
