Monday

Hey Sean, I'll be heading down Monday as well. Reports are, they are finaly getting some fish on artificials. Water temps should be low fifties. Running your dads boat? Where you putting in? What time you getting to the ramp? Last I checked, 10-15 knts, seas 1-2 feet. We know how that goes though. Get back to me.

Have your number, I'll call you on the water tomorrow if we get into fish.
What time frame will you be down, i'm assuming morning. We'll be down there from mid morning till the afternoon weather permitting so it should be a good day.

I was out on Saturday and had a great day at Sandy Point. Probably 25-30 fish up to 28" on bass assassins (of course I forgot the fly rod at the dock). Also caught 2 larger ones on bait- 28lb and a 18lb.

Bad day yesterday, fished from sun up to almost sun down. You all know the spots by now. Sandy Point was locked out again (shooting). Despite the terrible cold and winds, we went everywhere. Some locations we hit two and three times depending on tide. Not one stinking fish, not even a tap. Made no sense, water temps were good, (52-56). Clarity could have been better, a little muddy. I frankly never saw a fish caught, even on bait. As I said, we hit every typical location, and marked very few fish. Very few. I can understand not catching because of this condition or that but I don't understand the small number of fish marked. Could it still be too early, are the stocks that depleated, did the main body of fish already move up river, you tell me. It aint natural I tell ya, it aint natural.
Saw very few boats out there, NOAA must have scared most away. Although it was windy and cold all day, it wasn't that bad.Only had a half dozen up at Lapidium. Maybe 10 out on the flats, including the east side.
Glad to hear Sean got at least a couple shorts, we ran into him late in the day.
That was my fourth trip down there with only a couple shorts to show for it. Long and hard trips, fished diligently. I love a challenge, but this is getting ridiculous, and costly. It's nice to have this fishery so close to home but I'm anxious to hear that the rips are lighting up, much rather fish stripes in the brine anyway. As foulhook says, the flats are a nice bonus but obviously, don't count on them. At least this year so far.

I feel like i know the area pretty well now. We went down to sandy point around 6 when they left. Fished there had one short and then moved back up and caught another. It was nice to atleast get out on the water and fish abit. but yea thats where we got our fish is along the south end of sandy point.

John, well have to plan a trip out there some day. Either with the two boats or together, I think my dad would really to be fishing that area a few times this spring and would love to know some spots and such on where to go, where not to go etc.

Sean
