The recent storm that caused so much damage on land did not seem to stir up the area's waters enough to affect fishing.
Robin Scott said Tuesday from Ray Scott's Dock in Margate that the water in the back bays is crystal clear and 75 degrees, and thick with various kinds of bait fish including peanut bunkner, a prime attraction for all kinds of fish.
The July 4th holiday, week and following weekend are important to area fishing interests, and Scott is confident anglers will be visiting and is positive flounder will be strong in the bays and inlets.
And, she thought is was "neat" that she got a lot of calls from interested customers and dock tenants who were way more concerned with how she came through the storm.
"Not one asked about their boats or how the fishing was," she said.
Recent catches out of Ray Scott's Dock sounded pretty good.
Daniel Stark of Somers Point showed a guided pontoon boat back bay trip how to catch flounder with two on Tuesday. Michael Allen of Delran got a 3-pound flounder, also Tuesday.
Richard and Harrison Pitts had keepers on Monday.
