    Hmmmm any recommended setups? close to shore and all that jazz. Ray still cruising around? I wouldn't mind a good fight to abbreviate the eaters.

    I've been getting out like twice a week or more for like the last 5 weeks and from my experiences in recent weeks, what has been working most consistently is to go near sunset when there is a near high tide. It seems like at high tide/slack water the fish stop biting as much and start moving more. That said this may only apply to Ponto.

    Some guys here have been fishing piers, I've been working the jetty and then looking for structure and troughs in the sand and going from there. I've heard people in here say the perch stay tight to the shore and that seems to ring true with what I've been experiencing.

    As for bait, camo worms work a trick when they feel like biting. Haven't tried much else.

    Most fish don't bite well during slack tide. Remember fish want to expend the least amount of energy to feed. Moving water brings food to the fish instead of expending a ton of energy to chase down prey. They would rather sit and ambush prey then go out and find it.
