FISHING REPORT 7/31

July is now gone,interesting month for sure,first 2 weeks bass bite was like I have never seen 60 years of chasing striiped bass. Second half of the month was as bad as the first half was good. Now the summer duldrums will begin but given it has been a strange year maybe this won’t be a normal August
I left dock before the seagulls woke up and went looking for bass. I made 3 passes along my normal hot spot with nothing and went looking. Dick was a little later getting out and made the same pass and damn if he didn’t get one . Following that neither of us could find a bass.. I switched to Fluke on last of the tide but could only find shorts , 11 Shorts ,once tide quit I came home and called it a day.
