When does the spring run of croaker start. I've heard that, for the last few years, there have been some biguns caught from shore.
I was invited to the Hot Ditch [elizriv] last Saturday and fished from the shore. Only spent a couple of hours; but, had a great time. Caught 14 'pups' [only 1 keeper] and had one small striper and one blue try to commit suicide on a topwater popper. Both were tenderly released.
Lets go fishing!

I would also like directions to the shore spot you speak of. It would save me quite a bit in gas and time coming from the beach.

croakers will usually start being caught in commercial nets later this month.
The first hook and line catches will happen in the lower reaches of the tidal rivers, then the fish will spread back out into the lower Bay. Steady 53 degree water temp is usually what triggers them to start feeding, but they'll be here long before that.

Watch the water temps, then go get em.
