Hey,

What do you guys think the bass and blues in the rips are feeding on right now? A couple weeks ago it was solid matchstick sized juvenile sand eels. Now I'm not sure. I think squid, peanut bunker and sandeels are all present. That can be a couple different flies so I'm trying to narrow it down. I'll be out this weekend and next if anybody will be on the radio.

As of last weekend it seemed to be mostly medium sized sand eels (this is just north of the rips). Medium to large clousers fished deep seemed to do the job. Unfortunatley the dogfish have moved in big time.

There have been reports of 2" to 3" squid in the area.
