Interesting morning for sure,got to dock and Morgan had set up a light in water and in the light were 10-12 striped bass just slowly swimming around,very little bait and what was there the bass were not interesting in
One of the bass had a tag in it
. I watched for 15 minutes and realized these fish were not interested in filling their stomachs .
So I got in the boat and went looking for bass that may be hungry and after 3-400 cast I finally got one to attack my lure and it turned out to be a 24″ angry bass but than nothing . Switched to fluke and picked up 2 shorts and went back to bass on outgoing tide but finding nothing I called it a day. Clearly there are some bass around but not interested in dinner
Need a couple more degree drop for sure


Left dock under cover of darkness and headed South, long ride dodging conch traps and finally got to one of my favorite spots a little late .But did managed to get 6 bass and 2 Bluefish before the tide forced me out
returned to old areas looking for Fluke and found 5 shorts before calling it a morning
Fall is in the air for sure, thousands of sea gulls schooling up to fly south ,damn near had one hit my windshield . Most of the Osprey have left so expect to see some Bald Eagles very soon
Tomorrow is not looking good right now


A BEAUTIFUL MORNING ,liitle cool at 51 but beautiful and sunrise was outstanding. Left dock with bass on my mind but was only able to find one along with 4 Bluefish. Decided to look for fluke and found a real light bite as they were picking up the bait and dropping it but I managed to get 8 to the boat but all short between 15-17″
don’t know if there will be a chapter 2 but given it some thought

Crabbing appears to be very good both Cameron and Boulevard Bait and Tackle and Morgan at Whale creek can give you some great insight on best spots for crabs


Beautiful evening ,great sunset after missing the sunrise this morning due to the rain .HOWEVER the fish were not cooperating and all I could find was one Bluefish in the same area I was in this morning. Will hit it again in morning and try different area


Overslept this morning due to watching the Eagles beat Indy but was able to catch last hour of outgoing… My “smart phone” weather map had rain but all offshore or west . I no sooner just engine down when skies opened up ,so much for a “smart phone”
Came back to the dock to dry off and wait for rain to leave. Rain stopped ,tide now coming in so out I went looking for a bass. No bass so swtiched to Fluke and had a slow bite of 16-17″ fluke..Ended up with 9 fluke . wind now coming up so called it a morning. I plan to go back out on start on outgoing this evening


Beautiful evening so out I went with tide out 2 hours and worked my creek
Picked up 1 bass, 4 -bluefish 4 Fluke and sea bass driving me crazy
A good way to spend a couple of evening hours in calm water


After taking a dayb off I went out this morning looking for bass. Little cool this morning at 50 degrees but no wind. Found one bass and a couple of bluefish before tide drop out .Switched to fluke and pick up a dozen shorts before calling it a morning.given some thought to trying it again this evening


It was an ugly morning with still wind and building and rain not too far off
Wind pushing tide in . Did manage to find some Bluefish but not all that big 16-18″ . Found one 17″ Fluke .wind coming harder so called it a morning
Won’t be fishing tomorrow


Today was a day of remembrance . Got to dock and wind was howling and any other day with howling wind and low tide I would have stayed tied up BUT today brings back bad mIemories. On 9/11/01 I was sitting in mouth of Corsons Inlet catching fluke. I also had for the first time an AM radio on board and I was listening to Talk radio while catching fish when the news started breaking. After I’m not sure how long I began to see the dark clouds of smoke in the sky that otherwise there wasn’t a cloud in the sky and by now it was clear we were under attack and I headed for dock.
Every year since on 9/11 I go to that spot ,shut off engine and remember that morning. Today I was sitting in a 3-4 ft chop. As I sat there I could not help think how far this country has come since that day. Muslims Attacked us and today we have a President who was raised and educated early as Muslim and a President who has his college records lock out for life ,WHY??
Same President has 11 Czars as advisors that did not require congressional approval and 9 of the 11 are Muslim
As I sat there rocking and rolling I could not get out of my mind what the future for this country looks like and that leaves me depressed

I did get one short fluke on way home
Sorry for the rant but today is day of remembrance and we can never forget and hopefully our future as a Country is better than my thoughts and my Grandchildren will have the same great country I grew up in
God Bless America


Tough morning, NE wind ,little cool,moon tides ,waited until daybreak to leave dock looking for bass in the shallows and up some full creeks.Never saw a sign of a bass.
Switched to fluke on top of the tide which by now was VERY HIGH nothing but water all the way to Parkway .Could only find one fluke and a couple of Sea Bass that are beginning to get a little bigger
Tough morning ,my disposition is not good so headed home calling it a day. Once these tides slow down a little I think I will find some fish hopefully but than Sept is always a tough month
Do have to begin thinking about getting rid of short pants
