I fished Great Bay and then headed out to the LE reef yesterday. Water temps in the bay were about 75, and then dropped down to 61 through the LE inlet and then climbed back to 69 at the reef. This was with a dropping tide. I can't come up with a logical reason for water so cold at the inlet except maybe a big difference between surface water temps and much colder water underneath. Any ideas? Caught nothing but grass in the bay and one sea robin at the reef. Where did the fish go? BTW, anybody hear that idiot on channel 9 yesterday morning. I know the source for VHF transmissions can be triangulated fairly easily but does the marine police or coast guard bother doing it? If anyone ever deserved a fine, that guy did.

The water temp difference was probably do to upwelling. Warm bay water, cooler ocean and what's underneath is even cooler. When the tide was running, the water was mixing and therefore the colder water off the bottom mixed with the warmer waters on top.
