FISHING REPORT 10/17

Fishing is outstanding,catching sucks.Perfect morning ,dead calm ,incoming tide ,you couldn’t ask for a better day in OCT .HOWEVER the fish did not cooperate. .I worked as hard as I know how,burnt a lot of gas BUT all I could find was 2 Bass and a couple of Bluefish..Very discouraging given this is 17th of Oct and clock is ticking. My logs for last 9 years indicate a good bass bite beginning between Oct 6 and 12th but not this year. I’m getting reports of good schools of fish well north of me so maybe there is still hope.Right now it is very disappointing and doesn’t do much for my sweet personality
