Lots of small pods of sand fleas definitely enough to fish with. Water this morn looked great, wind was a little heavy and lots of small Whiting on the fleas.
Good luck to y'all and keep those hooks wet.

Thanks for the report and update. I have been checking the water temp down there and it seems colder than average. Is that good or bad for fishing?? It seems when we have come down there these last 4 years water temp was warmer but fishing was worst. The small bait steelers as you call them.

Based on the Long Bay observation system at the second avenue Pier the water temp today was 69. That was from 1 to 6 ft deep. On average throughout the years spring water temperatures are around 66°. I'm not exactly sure when you came down the last 4 years but the average water temperature in the summer is around 80°. As you know water temperature impacts everything along with turbidity. During the summer months I typically fish early morning and late evening. Not only to beat the heat but to beat the tourist...

Good luck to all you folks and keep those hooks wet..
