So when the bass open in the bay on March 1 I am looking to hit it hard and do it all spring. I first got into fishing last year and did the whole bridge/pier thing and just got into the surf. This spring, especially early spring I am thinking I'll have more success from the sod banks.I got some questions. I don't have a boat. How do I locate sod banks that I can access from land? I got a pair of chest waders so a little mud is not a problem. But where do I start? And if I see a sod bank, how can I tell if it's worth walking over too and if it is even safe to do so? I will be mostly around the Ocean City/Longport/Somers Point area.
