Wild Bill Terrible late flats season Rob. Makes you wonder if the fish will show at all in good numbers. I would have a little more confidence near the Sass. Been wanting to try it but the mud keeps coming. 2 weeks ago

Capt. Chris Tried the Sass yesterday. Water a little better than the flats, but not a lot of bites. Just a few shorts. Omar was there too, and did about the same. Still hoping we will get a fall bite! 1 week ago

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

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. 1 year ago
