Admittedly I've been a weekend warrior and I'm not getting the full read of the situation, but I'm struck by the absense of bait. Fishing weekends, I seem to be getting the bad part of the weather cycle. I know from talking to others fishing the same area that some pretty good fishing is going on during the week. Also hear of rafts of big sand eels a little off shore. But usually this time of year you see giant plumes of 1 to 3" sandeels, consistently, in this area. All I'm seeing this year is the occasional one yard diameter bait ball. Has anybody been fishing the bayside on foot regularly and what have you seen for bait?
