FISHING REPORT 7/24

Left dock this morning determined to find some bass on surface poppers. After over 250 cast still no bass, headed for shallow water on top of tide and another 200 cast but no signs. Decided to make one more more to a spot that hasn’t been producing and damn if there isn’t a 27″ bass there interested in my popper. 500 plus cast and one bass no very productive
Tried drifting a well trained Spot but nothing touched it
Make a short stop for fluke and caught a few but all undersize
Got boarded by Coast Guard ,nice group of guys more interested in talking fishing but checked me out .gave me my report and off they went to next boat
Also saw a beautiful Bald Eagle,thought it was an Osprey until I got close ans saw how big it was ,wing span had to be 8ft beautiful site to see
