>> "My name is Cody Wierzbicki and I'd like to let you guys know that the white perch at Petersfield Ditch are hitting hard on spoons up by the spillway at low tide. I'm using a little Shakespeare baitcaster with 5# test and a bobber about 7" from a spoon for added weight. But at low tide around 5:30pm today September 8th, 2014 I caught around 90-100 after about and hour of fishing."

>> Fishing Report by Sue Foster, Oyster Bay Tackle, OC: "Water Temp is 75.4. Fishing this week continued to pick up with snapper blues in the surf. We also saw and heard of some kingfish in the surf this week. Flounder continue to be good offshore at the Artificial Reefs. Inshore, flounder was a little slow due to the dirty water and wind. A few keepers out there mixed with lots of small ones. Offshore saw dolphin and wahoo.
