I normally fish there at night. Trout and Croakers are pretty good there right now. They are taking cut bait pretty steady. The reds normally hit between 12am and 3am, I been catching them on frozen cigars and northern mackeral. They will also hit on live pinfish or small trout as well.... Not sure what is biting during the day cause I dont make it out there during daylight..

Ok, thanks for the information. I am going to try and get there around 5:30 or 6:00 am and spend the day, and see what i can stir up. Figured I would pack a lunch and some cold adult beverages and enjoy the weather, looks like it is going to be nice on Friday ...

Default Three Mile Bridge

Good advice.

I only wish that the new fishing pier extended as far out as the old Three Mile Fishing Bridge. I really miss the 'regulars' as well as the people who ran the store. C2

Yeap, starting to learn the ropes of it... trout are pretty much a given most nights. They keep me busy while waiting on the reds. I caught some pretty good size croakers the other night as well. Tossed them back but the next day I remember someone saying they are good eating.... so might start keeping them as well....

When you going to head back out there? Might try to find some new spots to fish sunday, any recommendations?

Only problem with bob sikes is that from what I hear you have to lug all your stuff across the road to the pier. I dont have a cart to haul stuff with so would be a pain trying to get the rods, tackle box, pier net and cooler all over there in one trip...
