If you caught 4 today you did pretty good. I've fished the bay a lot the past 5 years and I only caught 6 keepers this morning myself. Marked tons of fish but they just weren't biting once the wind died.
I tie my harnesses about 4 ft. I keep my rods rigged with harnesses and the 4 footers store nicely on the 7' rods. The reason the harnesses are on the rods is to eliminate wasted time when we hit the pond. Unhook the harness and put in the bouncer and it's ready. I don't like keeping bouncers rigged on the rods.
