21 May May 21, The sun has come.
A stretch of good weather is upon us for the foreseeable future, with only some showers on Sunday. The water temperature should be coming up a little. It was 49 degrees this morning in the ocean.
Haven’t heard any third party reports today, but your author was out at 4:30 am on the incoming tide looking around for action. Went out on my boat to the mouth and fished the North Jetty. There was still some swell left over from Wednesday’s storm, but the water was flat as could be with no wind. No fish for me though. Tossed jigheaded and unweighted sluggos in white and grey (oh, I’m sorry, Arkansas Shad color.) Also threw some Super Spooks and white bucktails. No luck. The seals, though were having a ball grabbing slappy schoolies.
With nothing much happening, and no other boats in the mouth to watch, I was off to the flats where a number of flycasters were cruising the Woodbridge shore and along the Audubon Society weed beds. Only saw a few fish caught at high tide. But there were packs of bass moving back and forth all over the flats. They were really easy to spook, but very difficult to induce into eating.
