Fished the flats today from 8 - 2. Nothing but dinks for me. Lots of birds and breakers.

Flyrob Good to hear Mike thanks for the update. I noticed that the water temps on the flats dropped below 70 today 69.6 degrees. That's what they (the rockfish) have been waiting for the water temp to hit the 60s 4 weeks ago

mudpuppy Rob, it was great fun. The birds were hitting the water like 10 ft from my boat and some of the fish were literally banging into my boat while chasing bait...glass minnows I believe. Just wish they were 22 - 26 inchers, not 12 - 16 inchers....lol. 2 months ago
