Rollover Pass Report, Sept-14 thru Sept-20, 2015

By Ed Snyder/Outdoors
This past week saw several good redfish runs both day and night with night being better. Lots of rat reds in the cut, so anglers check your size limits to be sure. Speck action is mainly surf or bay right now, but persistent trout wranglers are catching limits to near limits of quality specks. Flounder action has slowed in cut with bay waders doing better early and late. Keeper eater drum are the main fish being caught now by anglers; croaker still providing boxes of fish for those family fish fries. We need cooler weather for the flounder run to start.
