Fishing Report 8/29

Not a good day, left dock around 5am with live Spot looking for bass BUT found water temp at cock at 83 and as I got to my anticipated location water temp was 80. Small Bluefish destroying the Live Spot. Decided to go to inlet looking for cooler water but best I could find was 78. I did something I rarely do and that was shit off engine as it was a perfect drift bit no fish. Went to start engine and NOTHING happen,completely silent. Fooled around with what few tools I had but could find nothing . Called my marina ans they came out and pulled me in. I got some more tools ans started looking. Found a broken ground wire but could not locate other end.. Hotter than hell so called it a day and will return in morning to continue with more tools.. Hopefully I didn’t blow any fuses while looking ….So bottom line fish win and probably couldn t happen at a better time with this 80 degree water


Left dock under cover of darkness with 10 Spots for bait looking for Bass with tide 1/3rd in . First 3 stops nothing ,4th stop I got into a fat 29″er .Went back over same spot and bluefish showed up destroying my Spots and not giving Bass a chance at the bait .After losing 8 Spots to Bluefish and sun up high I went looking for more Spot…. Picked up 14 Spot and called it a day.
Bass ONLY want Live Spot ,nothing on poppers or trolling. Water temp pushing 80 ,81 at my dock but dropped to 78 where I caught the bass
Once that sun gets up this time of the year bass are scarce
May try to go earlier tomorrow but it will be on first of incoming and that usually isn’t productive but nothing ventured nothing gained


Left dock little before Day break with some live Spot. First 3 stops produced nothing ,third area the screen lit up and over the next 30 minutes I landed 3 bass 27,26,22 ” and than nothing. Worked the area for another 30 minutes and nothing so headed to another area but sun now up and tide slowed down and it produced nothing
Decided to go look for some more Spots and found a hot area and landed 13 Spot for my pen. spot were the perfect size so I will have some bait again for Tomorrow


After 2 weeks of much difficulty for this old man I am testing one more time thanks to the brilliance of my older son who is a computer genius and has clean up the mess that transferred onto this new computer hopefully from here on out I will be back to posting as normal

8/24 TEST


8/25 fishing report

After catching some Spot yesterday , My #! son with his 2 boys went with me looking for Bass on top of tide. Incoming produced nothing but as tide started out we got 2 good bites on Spot but never got them to boat. Kept working same area and picked up one short bass and a 18″ Bluefish following losing 2 Spots to Bluefish
Seem like there are a few bass around but only want Spot
Will work the Spots hard starting Monday


Left dock this morning at 6am and found water temp of 80 in my creek. Took a ride looking for cooler water but best I could find was 78. Looked around for signs of bait and nothing,Sea gulls were just sitting and looking at me .Decided to look and see if there were any weakfish in the holes leading out of the bay NOTHING.. Switched to fluke and could only find 3 but one was 20″ …Fishing /catching will be tough unless this water temp drops little… Nice morning on the water so guess I should not complain


Left dock at daybreak looking for bass but with 76 degree water all I found were half ass misses on my surface plug. Switched to fluke on start of incoming working the inlet and nothing. Headed into bay and all I could find was 1 short. Wind coming up steady and my hat blew off and went right to bottom. I figured this was a sign to go home and off I went calling it a morning by 830
Bait is starting to show up as I saw 2 smalls pods of mullet
