Buckroe & Green Mile, 6/19

Wife gave me a few hours today to fish since it was Father's Day so I headed to Buckroe this morning around 6:30-10a. Caught a small grey trout and nothing else. Didn't see much of anything caught by others in quantities except for crabs. Lots of people crabbing and when I left pier was getting pretty packed. Later on I hit Green Mile around 8p since it was still technically Father's Day and ended up with 2 medium-large croakers and hooking a cownose ray. It ended up taking another guy's bait too and proceeded to tangle up the other rod I had out. Even though it tangled up everything, it was good that 2 of us had hooked it because it was one of the bigger ones and would have taken a while to fight on my own. Broke loose right at the side of pier so we didn't have to pull it out since we didn't have a net. Overall a decent day out since it was my first time out this year. Hope I don't have to wait as long to get back out again!

Thanks for the report. At the Green Mile the bite usually slows two hours before high or low tide. Sounds like you got out there just as it was slowing down.
I've definitely got into some seaweed and grass this year. Croaker fishing has been sporadic there. Have yet to do well with crabbing but it's possible.
I'm convinced one of those castable crab traps would work well out there!
True...I love the pier but paying to park keeps me away too. The parking fee seems to vary depending on who is there. Not even the people working on the pier know how much it costs to park.
After Labor Day I have paid anywhere from $2 to $4, once more than that. Maybe the guy was pocketing the difference. Before Labor Day it always costs more in my experience.
