PI report - 5/19 pm low

Had the pleasure of coincidental run-ins with BobP and SSully tonight for the low evening tide. Numerous school bass with several 22-24", a few 26" and one on the reel taking drag that beat out all those. World class sunset at the end of the consistent action too.

Once again, unconventional tactics were the rule until the current slacked enough for normal strip retrieve techniques.
It was observable that other than the bait / jig guys the only FF'ers hooking fish consistently were those working with the current and using the sharp deep sandy drop vs. working against it. Fish behavior can be a funny thing, but figuring it out is the fun part.

Couldn't help but notice how even bait guys with waders would drag the fish way up on the beach and throw them with a triple-twisting flip and splash into the water coated with sand ten feet from shore as if to show animosity toward the fish they were having fun catching.

Action was pretty hot but only one marginal keeper in the mix caught by a drifted worm rig as far as I could see. Ssully stayed for the late bite, hope he met some big fish after sunset.

The usual cluster-duck of people crowding everyone else out elbow-to-elbow... weekends gonna be a mess!
