Bait Report -- Pogies have shown back up as of last week.  The most recent reports were of bait off Holden and Long Beach in 20-30' of water.  The bait is big and a bit harder to catch than normal so carry a fast sinking net.  Also, the OIFC has hand-caught Ribbonfish.

Kingfish Report -- It has been a really tough Summer for King Mackerel fishing locally.  This past week it has been better than it has been, but not where we want it to be; but its moving in the right direction!  There were some good size fish caught this past weekend around the SW Tower bottoms.  The Tower itself is loaded with bait and there have been a lot of smaller Kings in that area.  I have not heard much from the Shark Hole or Jungle as of late, but our charter boats will be fishing this week, so stay tuned to the OIFC Fish Report.  The water clarity is good on the beach, there is bait and we have our first cool front North wind of the year; lots of variables in motion.  Stay tuned.
