Suddenly every time I pull my drop net at the dock I am catching spots. Perfect size for weakies and big flounder.

In two weeks I caught three. In the past three days I picked up forty. Best time seem to be at half tide. Also a lot of small silver perch and baby drum.

We may try to do a show this evening using live spots. Just hate trying so close to the full moon.

On my drop net I took a small crab bait clip and tied it to the top of the net frame. Half a bunker seems to do the trick. Minnows, crabs and all kinds of fish.

Spots, man I used to catch a ton of them when I was young. Great, Great bait for big weakies. Do you think we may see a comeback up in the OC area?

You are not going to believe this. I took my kids to the beach around the OC/Sea Isle area. My brother is fishing for kings and he pulls in 8 SPOTS!!! I couldn't believe it. I haven't seen them in years. Chunking you must have some sort of good vibe around you. I'm smelling big weakies on the jetties next week. Man I'm loving it.
