The shore anglers have bringing in the larger fish using powerbait in green or rainbow colors. The trollers have been catching more with smaller fish, average fish has been 12 to 15 inches with a few in that 8-10 inch range They have been using Rapalas or small to medium sized flashers with a half of a night crawler. Make sure you use a worm threader when trolling with night crawlers. If you use a half of crawler and only leave a a small tail leader on it, you will not miss as many strikes.
