    Just curious if you guys been getting any bonies in the bay yet. Thinking of going to harbor island or some other shore spots in sdb early Saturday morning before I get ready to take my boat out that night. Anyhow thanks and see you on the water, gang.

    Haha that's awesome. Have fun out there. I'm on the final stretch with my boat too. If I can just dedicate a weekend it'll be back to killing fish for me.

    Nice job, there will be strays and as the water warms they will move towards the mouth of the bay but the schools are south for now.
