The key to catching fish Wednesday was to find protected waters, and it was encouraging to receive a good report from an area that we have not heard much about lately.

The East End Lagoon came alive with action Wednesday, as a stiff south wind was blowing. Hempstead resident Herbert Jackson wade fished along the shore of the lagoon near the bridge and caught two flounder, both keepers, along with eight croaker and a large stingray.
