    IMG_1991.JPG IMG_1992.JPG I've been out in the mornings the last couple weeks shorefishing MB for spotties and it's been brutally slow.....until today. No big numbers but today I hit 4 different spots for 2 bites, landed both fish.....both keeper size. Both fish came on "Bad Shad" Slimswimz t-rigged on a 1/0 Owner J hook with 1/4 oz worm sinker. Tight lines

    Good to see one of your reports again and nice catch(es).

    The mornings have been good for me up here in N County. Two Sunday mornings (29-Nov & 6-Dec) have produced good quality fish, on small baits, right when the sun comes over the horizon. It makes me think of the German proverb - Morgenstund hat Gold im Mund (The morning has gold in it's mouth). Unedited picture from this past Sunday supports the proverb, note the gold color tones.

    He's back getting em! My experience the last month or so has been SD bay biting and MB pretty damn slow. At least you got some good size bass. Wonder if this big swell will stir things up in the bays a bit

    It's been slow as hell. From my experience the only way to work my way out of that is to keep at it....you can't catch em sitting on the couch. I go back to the spots that have worked for me and use the right stuff and eventually it will get better

    Agree. Gotta fish your way out of a slump. I always want to be on top of it when the bite turns around, never know, any day could be a great day out of the blue

    I love when they get those super destinct bars and the long head. Almost reminds me of the sea of cortez spotties other than the body.
