The first keeper bass made it to the scales at Scott’s Bait and Tackle, Mystic Island. Scott Albertson, owner, and his store always get the juices flowing for bass anglers as the Graveling Point area usually sees the first good numbers of bass moving in. Tom McGeary broke the barrier with his 9.9-pound 29-inch linesider caught Sunday, though other shorts to 26 inches were reported all through the week at the Point, with one lucky angler claiming four shorts himself. Bloodworms will be the best baits to toss out there.
“The Mullica River activity up at Hay Road is producing bass to 26 inches as well with a good showing of white perch up to a pound and a half. Little by little the fish catching activity is picking up,” stated a joyous Albertson.
