May 1 to June 15 (+/-) is prime time. After that it's fluking tme until the water starts to cool again. If you head out front there's seabass and fluke and in deeper water you can still jig up a bass or two.
I'm not a boat guy though, hopefully someone else with more knowledge of the subject will chime in.
