Over the past few weeks there has been some big blues move into the bay - somedays the bite has been good on the west side of the bay and others it has been good close to the inlet. I did have the chance to sneak out and nail a couple on poppers in shallow water. There is nothing like a big blue fighting for it's life in 4 feet of water. Although the trophy Striped Bass are still making their way, there is some bass action in the bay and inlet. But fishing the right tide is crucial. On the fluke side of things, the countdown is on: only 19 days left until the start of the season.
