If the unseasonably warm weather has your auto-cast finger twitching, there still is plenty of decent fishing around in fresh and salt water.In the lower bay, bluefish, sea bass and sea trout are still active. zTC Try the wrecks and stony bottoms for sea bass while using squid. Blues will take trolled spoons or hoses. Spoons cast into breaking schools work well also. The Middle Grounds, Tangier Sound and the mouth of the Potomac all have been good spots for blues.In the middle bay, the same methods will work well for blues in the 3- to 6-pound range, but the fish are reported moving south quickly as the weather cools, and catching them may take some work.

Just offshore of the Five Mile Buoy, as far as the eye can see, is a huge school of bluefish boiling on the surface.

Now the flounder are back, and anglers are fishing for them once again.Since the flounder are heading out, it makes sense that the inlet area has been a hot spot for fluke.
