    Back Bay

    Fished from 06-11 this AM. The currents were strong and holding bottom was difficult- everything was walking to the north. Tried a variety of baits, but the fish just were not cooperating. However, we did manage one small pompano on FB and one 27" puppy on a shrimp. The sunrise and weather were beautiful...

    Good job on the pup my friend, I hit BBNWR yesterday morning and only managed two roundheads, one spot and a skate. Current was still pulling North and 4oz was barely holding.

    0800-1400...grass and more grass. Fishing BBNWR teaches character and perseverance...and the creative use of the English language.

    We fished from 10am to dark. Grass made it impossible for the heaver and bottom rigs. The grass started clearing up as the tide came in. Managed one decent spanish and a couple average blues.
