Rollover Pass Report, Oct-12 thru Oct-18, 2015

By Ed Snyder/Outdoors
FINALLY the tide has turned for the better as cooling winds are now cooling bay waters for the migrations yet to start. Rollover has seen sporadic but steady redfish influx runs with a steady flow of outflux runs of flatfish. The croaker have been exceptional with the much larger 12 to 15 inch bull croaker in the mix with one 19 inch croaker reported. The drum are still drumming with many oversized bulls getting caught and released, and trout are starting to show up for day-shift action. All in all, the dog days of summer are finally easing into the crisp Fall days of Autumn; from now on folks it will only get better.
