Quick update going in to the last big weekend before most of the kids are back in school.

Plenty of croaker in the Inlet during the day. even a few spot mixed in. Bloodworms and squid strips.

The flounder bite in the Inlet has slowed down as the fish have migrated to cooler water offshore. So the bite on the Old Grounds (southeast of B Buoy) and at B Buoy (89 degrees 8 miles east of Inlet) has picked up.

Scattered reports of bluefish on the daytime incoming tide. Best striped bass bite is at night but its mostly short fish)

Reports of Spanish Mackerel and Cobia on the Fenwick Shoals.

Mixed bag of kingfish, spot small blues and croaker on the beach.
