Probably more likely water temp. There are some shorts on the shallow flats around there when the sun is shining and warming it up a little.

It was just weird
Usually even when the water is cold there is some sort of life under the lights
I did not even see a grass shrimp LOL
I've caught shorts there before in 42 degree water
Just seemed odd
In mid winter I see blue backs there often???
You would have thought the water was 30 degrees
Maybe it's just been such a cold winter and we become used to milder winters but in years past the coldest winters where when I would see the most blue backs?

Stopped by one of the OC bridges today to see if there was any action and observed an unlucky angler hook a large bass ( around 38 inches ) and realized he had no way to bring it up the 8 or 9 feet to land it with his 20# test mono. The line snapped as soon as the fish was about half way out of the water. Water temps or not the fish are here.

We poked around some spots in Stone Harbor last night and saw no sign of marine life whatsoever :(
