Late and later

Andy Crawford suspects that we may see some flip flopping on the leaderboard today based on boat order. He hasn’t seen a fish catch since midmorning, despite being in prime territory.

For much of the year low tide is critical here, but with many fish up spawning they like a “roof” over their heads. They may be most accessible, particularly on cypress, when the water is up, and for those on the Chickahominy that won’t occur until late.

Anglers with 5 p.m. check-ins have the leisure of time to make something happen, so expect some late-afternoon heroics.
