It was a cool morning when I left the dock at 38 degrees but warmed up to 53 with a little sun than clouds rolled in and temp dropped to 50 but little wind        . Looked for bass but nothing and no signs ,bass seem to be in the surf at the moment and not coming inside.Switched to fluke and found a steady bite on bottom of the tide . Using a 2 hook rig with Bergley Gulp shrimp and gulp 4 ” minnow. New penny or pumpkin colors  or chartruese produce results with fish up to 25″. Once tide got running hard bite slowed down probably the result of a little water temp drop. Clearly my waters are full of fluke which should make for a good opening day. Berkley Gulp is working best ,I tried fresh fish strips but crabs tore them up
