WELL, season is finished for and my boat. I went out this morning and it was a little cool and more NE wind than I would like but headed north on start of outgoing tide starting at 312 slow trolling with an eel.NEVER had a touch. Ted was in front of me on other side and had 2 shorts and called me over but I got nothing. I headed further north and finally picked up a 24″ rat on a bucktail but than again nothing.
Decided to head to Flat cr with tide out 2 hours and saw nothing and caught nothing. Another boat in creek also had nothing
Disgusted I headed to the barn
At dock begin removing what I dont need from boat in anticipation of pulling out and calling it a season tomorrow .
Water temps on top of tide this morning 52 , 2 hours out water temp dropped to 47. Also saw no serious bait even at my dock where there has been bait all year there was nothing.
Have reports of fish in ocean north of AC inlet but like last year I suspect these fish will boogy south on dropping water temps and probably stay outside 3 mile limit for most part given the water temps .
If you are still in the water best advice is to hit off shore lumps and hop for the best
