Big Bass in the Canal last night

I didn't catch a one, just schoolies for me. Some of the jiggers were nailing fish after fish of the large variety (3' or better). One guy I saw had a pair 25lb'rs going into the cooler. Stomach contents revealed they were feeding on everything from full grown blue back herring, to large squid. Whitting, needle fish, crabs, they are chowing everything. There were 3-4" silversides and schoolies where I fished but some of the faster rips had big girls on the bottom (not flyfishing water even if you used an 800gr, it's not going anywhere but on shore in some of these rips)

Hi Jim,

Thanks for the report, glad to see you got out and hooked up. If your interested and it's not to cold might do some more moonlit trips to rhody next week or maybe a visit to the canal:hehe:. I hope to get a few more stripers myself this month, haven't thrown in the towel yet.

Tight Lines,
