the seabassin of LBI has horrible too. I was hoping to get off for tile today but the damn ***** forecast ruined the plans. I'm going to play ball with my Lab and tie some rigs, anything not to do something responsible :) :) Hope all is well and thank you again for the rod.

We had the same exact thing. Really tough out there but scrapped together 20 keepers. No consistent bite whatsoever

I honestly think there needs to be more wreck deployment or scuttling. As most of the hang from the last 40 years and beyond are deteriorated and covered. The known ones are hammered also. I never really looked into it but I believe that old man shuda had a lot to do w the reef foundation but im not to sure. I may be speaking out of line but that's my 2 pennies

There is gear on EVERYTHING, and I'm sure its all loaded. We went Sunday and struggled on pieces that should be loaded this early in the season. We also fished opening day and had better results, but still had to work to get close to our 4 man limit.

our last stop was he deepwater reef and it did have a lot of pots around it, im not sure thats it pots, there have always been pots on most spots. Monty Hawkins seems to think were changing the spawning age of the seabass and they are reproducing less due to the size we keep vs the size we release. Def has some merit. But it is odd that they are not really good in any depth of water. Wish i had the answer

Honestly was a disappointment after the opening day we had. I'm itching for redemption now.
