I hit the area outside the harbor this morning. Things were really hopping out there. Small shad 4-6" are in close to shore and blues are running up and down the beach creating some fast and furious action. I paddled out to some of the rocky areas and found huge bass rolling on the surface, not busting but just rolling. These biggies were feeding on something, maybe the shad. Did I say these fish were huge, like small checkered seals huge. Not able to interest the monsters with even a large pattern I tried for about 15 minutes just sitting in the middle of these huge fish. The big fish were soon replaced with the slapping of schoolies which took just about anything 2" or longer with some flash. All in all a great morning on the water, landing a few 2' fish and seeing those monsters. As I was putting the yak on the jeep I could see a huge line of birds about a mile offshore but it was time to go to work. I'll be back out there this evening.
