Hit the bay around 7:30AM...

Beautiful day...!!!

Laid up chunking at several haunts for the better part of the day on the in and outgoing of the high...!!!

...nadda...
:(

Thought it would be another lonely day...

Heck...
We got excited just to see green seaweed...!!!


The water was WARM!!!
I mean, almost dip the toes in warm...


Then signs of life started to emerge on the slack...

SKATES!!!

There is life in W.W.!!!


With the slack upon us, we used the warm west breeze to push out a bit and watched a guy land a nice Sea Bass off the rocks...

More signs of life...


We approached our deadline and figured we would stop at one more spot to feed the skates when it happened!!!

Off the bank, in the ripple of the incoming, with the swirling of the chilled seawater and the back-bay-bathwater, two lines run with a fevered passion towards the warm creek ahead...

That's worth waiting for...


We ended up with two shorts on that burst, a loss about 5 minutes later and a healthy slot that hit shortly thereafter...


We spent all day waiting for the last 30 minutes of our journey, but it was time well spent!!!

Warm breeze, sun-filled blue sky, great companions and a promise of more to come...

Life returns to W.W.!!!

I don't want to get jawed for giving away spots...

...but I wasn't TOO far behind W.W. if you get my drift!!!
;)

All hit on fresh clam...

This info will serve others more than myself for the next few weeks...

It'll be May before I see the bay...
:(
