BAR-HOP­PING

TIDE STAGE IS THE BIG­GEST KEY TO SUC­CESS­FULLY FISH­ING OYSTER BARS

Sport Fishing - - GAME PLAN -

Oyster bars at­tract more cruis­ers than a sports pub on a Satur­day night. In fact, these nat­u­ral “wa­ter­ing holes” rank as top pickup spots for many in­shore game-fish species from Mary­land to Texas. Hang out at the right time, and you’re all but guar­an­teed to catch fish.

Bait­fish and crus­taceans are also bar reg­u­lars, prompt­ing a va­ri­ety of preda­tors to take ad­van­tage of am­bush spots in and around oyster reefs. Choose the right tide and prop­erly present the right bait, and you’ll in­crease your odds.
