FINALLY, Some Good News

My son, Jon, is the first in the Pickering family to hit it big this year.  He fished the oceanfront this evening and landed 12 schoolies up to 20 inches.  Previous to tonight he had been catching a fish here and there in the last couple of days, but tonight was the first "good" night of the new season in which he was able to catch more than one fish.  All his schoolies fell for Cocahoe minnows fished on a lightweight jighead.
With warm weather and favorable winds expected in the next few days, I'm guessing the fishing will light up along the oceanfront and maybe even up in the Bay. This should be the weekend to get your first fish of the year.  FINALLY!
