Springer fishing can be challenging

After an April dry spell the fish finally came back to my boat. We picked up fish on both Saturday and Sunday last weekend. Springer fishing is notoriously challenging but the lack of rain has made fishing above the Head of the Channel even more difficult. The low water conditions and lack of good bait (green label herring) accelerated the transition from bait to hardware. Fish have been caught with 360 flashers and spinners/superbait but it hasn’t been the kind of April we saw ten years ago. The catch rate is getting better and you can find fish on bait or hardware right now but you’ll have to be patient. Tight lines.
