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

By Ed Snyder/Outdoors
Despite the early week’s rain, the fishing at the cut was superb for reds, flounder, and trout. Cooling temps should produce great action for the cut as well as the bay. Night-shift anglers doing great some nights but poorly on others. Redfish are beginning their fall runs with good slots and line breakers coming through. Flounder, reds, trout, croaker and drum are keeping the day-shifters busy.
