Anglers have shifted to fishing at dawn and dusk to beat the heat. Stripers are hiding near drop-offs with deep water and waiting for bait fish. Though you may see some boils early in the morning. A Zara Spook, Jumpin’ Minnow, Sassy Super Fluke or similar bait will catch boiling stripers. Black bass are active in many coves throughout the Government Wash area. Water levels are up. Keep an eye out for submerged hazards.
