FISHING REPORT 10/30 or lack of

Beautiful morning but nobody told fish. tried drifting for bass with last of my live Spot and never had a touch. Switched to bucktails and a trolled a plug NOTHING never had a touch
Well I have one Spot left maybe tuesday


Perfect tide this morning but bright red sky spelled trouble was on it’s way . I headed to last place I had fish on this tide which was top of tide but found nothing. Spent next hour hitting other spots on this tide with nothing .So I headed to where I’ve caught them after tide was out over an hour and FINALLY found 3 bass all on live Spot . Wind now coming up pretty good ,hit a couple more spots and called it a day. Only thing I can get a bass on is Spot and my Spot supply is now very low,maybe one more day .


Tried this morning on last of incoming NOTHING, Ted sent me a note saying he had a good morning in only spot I didn’t try so decided I would go back out this afternoon and went to area Ted reported . I had 3 spot on board ,first 3 drifts 3 bass a 29.26,and a 24″ .Switched to eels and never had a touch. Tried bucktails and plugs nothing . Got dark and headed home
Thanks Ted

fishing report 10/25

Wind finally laid down a little not much but enough to fish so out I went with an air temp of 42 searching for bass with 3 hours of outgoing… well I tried every spot I ever caught a bass on this tide and found nothing absolutely nothing. Tide out so decided to go back where I started before tide started back in hard and FINALLY picked up one 25″ bass but that was all there was …wind coming up harder so called it a cold morning…Tomorrow looks like a little less wind but still cold


I got out a little later than usual this morning as I wanted to give tide a chance to come in a little. quickly picked up 2 bass 23 and 25″ than nothing . I went a long stretch finding nothing. Tide is up and overflowing the banks so I decided to make a run for west side of Ludlam to a favorite spot of mine. This spot has not produced for me since spring but gave it a try and it paid off as I managed to get 4 bass, not big but very angry between 18-20″. 2 caught on a rebel and 2 on a rubber bait . Got a little wet in a cloud burst but bite was over
Total for the day was 6 bass and 1 Bluefish
Weather is going to go south ,may be able to get out in morning but than it looks like a 3 day blow .Forecast of 30-40 mph winds tomorrow afternoon and stiff winds through the weekend …Probably need it to get the fish moving and hungry.. I saw very little bait today


Another beautiful morning and I worked the last 4 hours of incoming for bass.Tried eels .plugs ,rubber, hitting just about every spot I ever caught a bass with NO results,also no bait other than small shiners…Did manage 1 -20″ fluke ,few small sea bass and bluefish but no bass.May get one more day before we get a 3 day hard blow

10/19 fishing report

The Fish won today.It appears the native bass in my area left on the moon as I never saw a fish all morning. dragged and eel and a spot and nothing touched it not even the little pain in the ass bluefish.
It is possible they went way up into marshes on the flood tide . I fished tide all the way up and little on outgoing and never had a touch
I am not in the best of moods


Another beautiful morning 70 degrees and no wind when I pulled out of dock around 7 .First Stop I picked up a 26″ bass but that was all the bass I would see the rest of the morning, Couple of Bluefish .Very high flood tide and you could not see the sodbanks as a result . Tried fishing the flats but I found nothing on flats I was fishing but did hear of a few caught inanother flat . Water temp of 66 which is unheard of for 18th of Oct
tomorrow is another day …So far anything I’ve caught has been native local fish no signs of migrating fish,migrating fish will be more silver and have a few sea lice on them

fishing report 10/17

A beautiful morning and warm .Decided to head north to look for bass and after travelling almost to 34st bridge hitting every spot I ever caught a fish and finding none I returned and headed for a shallow bay .. trolling a very light bucktail I finally got a hit in about 3ft of water and landed a 26″ bass and worked that area for another 45 minutes with nothing but little bluefish Nice day to be on the water for Oct… Only thing hitting an eel of a spot was small bluefish
first flock of Brandt have shown up


When the wind is from the north the fish do not come forth…i had the General on board today as his return trip to Florida was delayed due to weather related issues. Well I hit every spot I had a fish the last 2 days when wind was from South and all we could find was little bluefish…Make a drastic move as the wind was picking up up making a good drift tough and we got into one 27″ bass but that was all she would give us today.
It was a little “cool” this morning with that stiffer than you would like North wind and tomorrow morning looks down right cold ..So far every bass caught has been a resident
