Rollover Pass Report, Dec-7 thru Dec-13, 2015

By Ed Snyder/Outdoors
This past week of warming weather trends put the larger females back on the flats. The flounder are still being caught but very few over the 20 inch size; mostly 14 to 19 inchers. We are still waiting for a real cold front to chill the waters before the saddle blankets show up. On Wednesday, the flounder limit goes back to 5 per day. Redfish have been sporadic at best, showing up on some days but disappearing on others; trout have been great with night-shift anglers boxing limits during the dark-30 hours; drum and sheepshead have been steady for bulls and slots. CRABBING is still great here with some really nice ones coming in, one at 9 inches from tip to tip. COME AND GETTUM!!
