JULY 3 FISHING REPORT

FINALLY I made a decent decision, left dock at 4:30 looking for bass on incoming tide ,after an hour with no action I headed for the sound and shallow water and found 2 -24″ bass on poppers in 3 ft of water .tide up I made another  move and swtiched to bucktails and paddletails and  picked up 4 -bass  1-30, 3-27″   ,had a double header but couldn’t get one of them in net before it broke free.Missed a couple of others.Tide started out bite was over .Bass were caught in 72 degree water  Top of the tide seems to be the bite in this warmer water. Dropped a gauge to bottom and water temp on bottom at top of tide was 65

 Tried for fluke for a n hour but only 2 shorts
