Good post!
I was out the next night at Watch Hill. Ended up pulling an all nighter, fishing sunset to sun rise. Although my actual catch rate wasn't very high for the time spent, the numbers of fish I saw feeding was astounding! It was basically an all night blitz of 28 - 34 inch bass on billions of peanut bunker. By morning, the fish that were caught were packed like bean bags with bait. They actually looked comical with their distended bellies!
It was tough getting them to find a fly amidst all that bait but a plug swam through whitewater got more attention.
It was a beatiful night with peekaboo moon and crashing six footers throwing spray up into the parking lot.
I love it!
