Rollover Pass Report, July 13 thru July 19, 2015

By Ed Snyder/Outdoors
The heat of summer has split the anglers methods of fishing. Night-shift anglers, who prefer the cool of the evenings, spend PM hours lit up by the generator’s rhythm casting nocturnal waters for trout; while day-shift anglers prefer the heat of a summers day under makeshift shade fishing for whatever will bite. Yet others will immerse themselves into heavy currents of water rippling and boiling towards the Gulf or bays that may give them some flounder or redfish for supper. Then their are the crabbers who spend hours jerking lines of chicken necks in hopes of landing a few crusty critters snapping at their toes. Whichever way you choose to enjoy your time here at The Pass, rest assured that your weekend or vacation time will be well spent.
