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
