Patience has been the word for early fishing in the Sound this year. It's been slow, but the box has been looking ok by day's end. A 70lber is as big as we've seen so far, but most keepers are in the 30-50lb range. I think faster fishing is coming in the near future as I still haven't made it to many of the spots I fish. It hasn't exactly been flat, sunny, and beautiful this year... Shrimping has been as good as it ever gets for me.
