Left dock this morning 5:45, a cold June morning with a temp of 49 at the boat. Wind 12-15 but expected to get up to 20 or more.Bass were on my mind. Water temp at dead low tide was 61,ocean surf reported to be 58 pretty cold for June ,guess that is due to ice bergs melting as a result of Global Warming. Worked my creek with an eel and as tide started in I got into a 30″ bass … Wind is building against the tide making it tough to drift… Worked the area until I couldn’t stand it anymore and called it a morning ,back at dock by 8:15. Never saw another fish on my screen.
The bass had a 14″ bunker in her belly so she had to be one hungry spawned out fish
Never tried for fluke as I suspect given how cold the water is there would not be a bite until tide got halfway out under full sun
I can not remember a year with so much wind BUT given the cold water I suspect the bass bite will continue
