After a slow start, things are starting to look up. There seems to be a lot more baitfish in the bay than normal for this time of year. Don't know if that's why the day bite is down but it's a good excuse. Best bets during the day have been jigging or rigging redtail chubs or crawler harnesses. Only heard of a few fish on cranks during the daytime so far. The good news is that in the last week the night bite has turned on. Trolling and casting shallow running cranks over the flats, reefs, and around the remaining weed beds has been the ticket. Most guys are averaging 5 to 10 fish a trip at night - 1 to 5 during the day. There's a good mix of sizes beening caught, eaters up to 10 pounders. Thanks to all the bait, they are really fat. One guy told me he got a 27 incher that went 9 pounds! Looked like a basketball with a tail. If you decide to come up, don't forget the headlamp and spotlight. You'll need them.

Thanks for the report Chris! We were up last week. Got the wood shed filled for gun season and did some bow hunting. With all the bad reports that we heard while we were there, we stuck to the woods instead of the water. We will be back up in a couple of weeks. It sounds like they will be going good when we get there........Patch
