    There are plenty of fish this time of year in the Bay. Skates, Stripe Bass, Halibut, Sharks, Rays, Perch are some of the common things this time of year. Then you have the junk fish like the Croakers, Bullheads, and the seasonal Jack Smelts.

    If you're fishing for the first group of fish, Anchovy, Sardines work best, for Sharks, use cut up Calamarie or shrimp. The second group bites just about anything, but cut up shrimp works best. For the Jack Smelt, use cut "Pile Worms" on a #10 baitholder hooks. These are surface fish so you'll need to use a bobber too.
