After taking 2 days off to play with my new granddaughter I went out this morning looking for bass. 37 degrees but no wind . I looked for 2 hours without a touch, switched to Fluke and tagged 13 and started home.Made one stop on way in my creek and picked up 3 bass 19-22″ on bottom of the tide
water temp 60 degrees with some spots down to 58
Next couple of days look UGLY maybe couple of hours in morning than doesn’t look good


Tough morning for bass, Dick Omrod was up from Florida and we spent 3 hours looking for bass without a touch. I needed to get a fix with a bent rod or I was going to start talking to myself so we switched to Fluke .Fluke were a lot more cooperative and before calling it  a morning we had 22 Fluke 15-17″ and 2 bluefish. All caught of bottom of the tide. If interested , trick is to find water dropping off the flats into deeper water and lightly up and down jigging with Berkley Gulp…..Not exactly what I would want to find in October but they did keep us entertained …Bass not being here in my area is starting to worry me ,we should be catching bass right now Maybe next week they will show ,it will be colder next week ,don’t mind cold if wind gives us a break


Another beautiful sunrise,left dock optimisitc looking for bass BUT none were found.I have no idea what is going on around here,bass are being caught south and north but not in this area. 3 other boats out this morning and no one had bass
I did troll up a couple of nice Sea Bass of 13″ but season doesn’t open until Sat…. Couple Bluefish and one 4 ft shark
I stopped for fluke before calling it a day and picked 8 so fluke are still here. I bought some new plugs and will try again tomorrow. Looks like a dry cold front moving in


Beautiful sunrise but it didn’t last long as weather is on the way. I searched for bass with no success. Caught almost everything that swims bluefish,sea bass,kingfish,lizardfish,shark and 6 fluke But no bass
this is shapping up as my worst October ,clear sign that bass population is DOWN .But maybe they are just late. did see the first small flock of Brandt this morning
Tomorrow doesn’t look good


A beautiful morning following the all day rain yesterday and again I went looking for bass, Second stop I had a bass than never saw another and I fished the entire incoming tide.Small bluefish driving me crazy… I did make a stop before quiting to see if Fluke were still here and picked up 5 befaore calling it a morning. Stiff SE wind blowing now but if it lets up I may go back out at dust
These bass are starting to frustrate me and increasing my bar bill


Left dock at sunrise and what a beautiful sunrise it was but it didn’t last long as clouds rolled in. Found a Bass on first stop again and than nothing .Decided to run south where I found 2 bass . Weatherman is reporting light winds and no rain but something wet is falling ??? Decided to head back to my areas and after a couple of stops fro bass and nothing I hit a fluke spot and landed 6 ,now while weatherman is still saying no rain whatever is falling from sky got little more intense.went back looking for bass with no sucess so called it a day .Local weatherman still saying no rain until Friday !!!!! but I’m soaked
If whatever is falling from sky lets up I may try it again at dust

fishing report 10/12

A beautiful morning ,little cool but it is OCT .First stop I got into a bass than nothing but couple of Bluefish the next 4 hours and I put some miles on looking but never saw another bass. Decided to call it a morning but made a stop on way home to see if any fluke still around and they were home.Picked up 6 including 2 over 19″
Hopefully one of these days the fluke will be going and bass will be here We need the Brandt to arrive I think


What should have been a perect morning with heavy clouds and light wind turned out to be a DUD….I headed South and worked that area for 2 hours with only small Bluefish ,left and came back to my area where I had bass yesterday and still no bass and more little bluefish…Day like this does nothing for my disposition ….Won’t be fishing tomorrow but hopefully will be out sunday weather permitting


Tough Morning ,left dock at 7am looking for bass and I hit every spot I ever caught a bass north of Ludlam without ever getting a touch,very little bait
Finally around 11 I’m pissed off and telling myself to go home.But decided to go up a creek I had never caught a fish in. This creek isn’t very wide but deepens as you get in to it > WELL !!!! to my surprise the bass were hiding here and in 15 minutes I had 3 and missed 2 others and than nothing. After looking around some more headed to dock..One tough morning but it ended well


Another day fighting the wind ,yesterday it was South 20-30 and today it was west  15-25 .Plan was to find a new spot for bass but all I could find was one lonely bass,no clear signs of bass ,little bait and Brandt still haven’t arrived. Good news was the bass was a nice shiny bass meaning it came in from ocean ,may be it was a scout?? Tried for fluke before calling it a morning but could only find one. Water is full of grass as result of the high moon tide last night
I will keep looking as the 1oth is a magic date BUT looks like weather will go south and wet on 10th
