    Joe over at Rivers End Tackle said there have been lots of small bass inside the mouth of the river and along the adjacent shores. There haven’t been many people out fishing for them, but the fish are there. Some bigger fish have been taking eels at Long Sand Shoal as well. The tributaries on the lower river have hickory shad right now also. Blackfishing is still very good, but shorts have been an issue locally, the guys that move around are finding the better fish and slower stages of the tide have been better this week. There are still some bonito around as well.
