South County Report

Fished one of the South County salt ponds yesterday (05-12). At morning slack low tide the temp was 52-53 degrees. Caught some schoolies in the 18-20 inch range. White was the color if it matters. Got the first couple of fish on a small clouser but had to switch to spin tackle when the wind picked up...
Saw several larger fish along an edgeline but couldn't convince them to eat.

I didn't see any squid but I assume that they were there. I saw some small schools of bait that appeared to be about 2" long and relatively thin. There were several seals up inside the pond as well.

On the incoming tide the water temp was 47. It wasn't mixing with the 53 degree pond water and there was a distinct line and color change. moving the boat one way or another 5 feet for a temperature change of 5 degrees.

Overall a great 4 hours of fishing before the wind won out. These were my first stripers of the year and it was worth the drive down from NH
