: Friday and Saturday update

Fished with Jim Simms Friday and Saturday, hit all the usual places with mixed results. Friday started out on the slow side with the occasional fish 16”-24”. With the tide slowing down we decided to move and wait for the tide to turn. Once the tide pick up some steam the action started. First, mid 20 fish, then bigger fish arrive. I hooked a nice fish only to drop it on the beach two feet from shore, about 34” – 35”. Now its Jim’s turn with a nice keeper, then another nice keeper 33”... My turn again, this time I land a 40” bass. We landed more nice fish, a total of 8 keepers for the day. It was loaded with bait, sand eels from 1” to 6”.

Saturday was okay, I hit two keepers 29” and 30” but the fish were on the other flat from where we were. A spin guy was killing them, making very long casts and within seconds he was hooked up.

Great fish . Sorry I couldn't make it on Sat. listened to the weatherman and decided not to make the drive. Looks like 40" fish like the Holy Smoke. FishHawk.
