Plymouth is S M O K I N' (9/23)

Plymouth has been productive over the last week. There are many fish in the 30”-36” range. Bait has been holding in the area of Long beach and Warren cove. Herring, some 2”-3” pogies and of course silversides are what’s on the menu and in great quantities. There’s a large school of shad just off the jetties that I’ve seen get hammered once by blues other than that they just seem to school in that area and appear to be untouched by the bass. Sunday 9/23 I got several bass over 30” and others in the 22” range on 2” peacock over chart over yellow over white clousers and 5” chart deep eel.
Lost 3 good ones on a #6 bonito bandit. I’d have them on for a minute or so with the #6 but as soon as I was able to turn them (or get them to stop towing me around) the slightest loss of tension let them spit that small hook easily. The small white bonito bandit was getting whacked left and right but I took it off because I wasn’t able to keep the larger fish on. I was fishing from a yak and it definitely gives you an advantage but shore guys casting pencil poppers with droppers were doing well too. Last Tuesday there were some monsters in the cove for a short time, I have not seen them since but surface activity with 30”+ fish is enough to keep my interest. Morning has been better than evening but last night 6pm-7pm was pretty hot. I don’t usually give such specifics in the few reports I post but at this time of year when fish start to migrate what’s hot one day may not be the next and there is plenty of room in this area so get down to Plymouth and enjoy it while/if it lasts. Maybe we can track the schools if everyone posts what they know. I won’t be able to make it down there tonight and still remain married. I think with the front coming through it’s going to be nuts there. I fear that once the storm hits it will be a done deal. The top of the incoming and begining of the outgoing gives the best action near shore, during the 1/2 outgoing the actions move over to the rocky areas in Warren cove and out to the rockpiles straight off the beach.

Sounds awesome Jim... sounds like you're into them thick right now. I think you're right, a storm will move them along, unless you have another wave coming up behind them
