Headed out solo on Sunday in the mid-bay area, got the go ahead from wifey, no strings attached, no timeframe, just go. With a 5 month old at home i jumped on the opportunity. Wind was blowing 10-12kt from the west, outgoing tide started later than i thought, so i poked around for over an hour. Found some fish holding that just would not bite a jig. Spent hours trying different combos, literally 2 hours with constant fish under me and just could not make it happen. Finally busted out the flyrod and it did the trick. Purple/white clouser on a full sink Class V density compensated line and i was in business. Quick 12" strip with a good pause between each one was the only way they would bite. Too short of a pause or too short of a strip and forget it. All fish were spitting up worms left and right. Gave a thought to tieing on a red clouser but just didnt want to mess up good thing since it took so long to figure out. Enjoyed some pullage for over 2 hours. Tide slacked but the fish were still biting. Best bite was at the end of the outgoing tide just before slack. When the tide was running hard it was tough to get down to them and stay there long enough to entice a strike. So, frustration lead to success
Below are photos from sunday, screen shot and A sample of the size and quality of fish. Notice the sore on the side of the fat one...are we seeing this so soon?
