As I read alot of the threads (and I do because I would rather be fishing than working.....) I notice that alot of people seem surprized that certain breeds of fish have not moved up into the mid to northern waters of the Bay and tributaries yet. Some have luck and alot don't! I am just curious in thinking but, the 9+ inches of rain this spring is alot of water and sheds millions of gallons of fresh water to the bay in the form of run off. I would imagine that alot of the fish that are more saltwater acclimated than fresh (not like rockfish, spot, or croaker) but like trout would hold there northern migration until the specific gravity (salt level) of the water increases. Basically I guess, Patience and a prayer to the rain gods to knock this crap off!!!

Just a thought, and anyone up for PLO this weekend?

Between that and the unnaturally cool weather, I think you're dead on.

Plus we've gotten used to species in the upper bay where they shouldn't be in the last few years of drought. It cracked me up last summer to see people bragging about their giant croaker and opening their coolers to see undersized puppy drum :rolleyes:

I point out the mistake. Sometimes they toss them back, the idiots keep them. If they ignore the warning, I have a conversation with the ranger.
