There are bass being caught at places other than by the plant. Look for the bay shallows that heat up quicker than the deeper water and fish them late in the day / night after a nice sunny day warms them up. If you try close to the inlet incoming to hih tide and the beginning of outgoing are not good as they are have colder ocean water.
I found them on the shallow bay flats last thursday. And it was not the powerplant..i promise you that. They are at the same flat every year like clock work feeding on spearing and jumping clear out of the water. I dont get why everyone is so hooked on the power plant. I catch more fish on the mud flats in the bay then i do at the power plant.
