fish spsp today. got the rods in the water and immediatly started getting bites. didnt catch any, but was getting bites, from blues i guess. was using cut bunker fresh. the flies were however, out of controll. i was getting eaten alive. i stayed an hour or less, i couldnt take it anymore. My cooler was covered and so was it. Beautiful day out, fish were biting, but so were the flies, it was insane. Any tips on keeping the flies off me, i didnt have bug repelant, but i hear that doesnt work for flies. There were swarms of them.
