    Finally got into a decent bite at night. Tons of bites not too much in terms of size but fun nonetheless.

    Good job. Fishing in the dark comes with it's own set of difficulties(like u can't see :emoji_poop:) but the bass will defintely bite. I think the bass in the bay become more active then because they feel safer from predators themselves. I can't count the number of times i've fished in the dark in the morning, found a good spottie bite then the bite shut off like a switch at daylight

    Let me tell ya....99% of my fishn is done at night. Its my preferred way. Less people, less water traffic, more parking. Ive learning to do everything by feel. Put the family to sleep and away i go. Ive had more than enough double digit nights to say the nighttime is the right time and I know im not alone. On MB in the summer time, shorts n a tee shirt wth a pocket full of gummy worms....that is my happy place.

    Where are you fishin'? the breakwater, entrance to the bay, or? I can't go on the breakwater any more, need to use a walker. I'm thinking by the Patrol depot at the point of Quivera Basin? somewhere I can drive and be close the the edge, but no walkin' on rocks! NICE variery of fish there too!

    South or north side of the entrance to the boat slips/bait barge area is very good to fish on in out out going tides.
    Access is good & parking usually available too.

    Just west of the Hyatt(used to be Islandia) hotel there's a parking lot right at the top of the rocky shoreline. At both ends of that parking lot there are drains(concrete swale) that drain the parking lot into the bay. You could fish both of those drains pretty easily with your walker, and park your car right next to where you fish. There's another one right at the end of the cul de sac just past the parking lot(south of) where you could also park and access the top of the bank....there you'd be fishing at the entrance to Quivara Basin(the bait barge). I caught short barricuda in that area frequently during October and November. Mackeral and bay bass can also be caught there, I've seen a few flatties caught in that area. Several different handicapped guys fish those spots. If you wanna go down there and give me a little heads up i'd be happy to meet up with you , show you those spots, and help you out if you need it. Just PM me......My name's Mike too.

    I was actually by the patrol dept half the night and got a few really good bites. The first half I was on rocks closer to the entrance but further down the channel into the bay.

    Wow,...funny, I used to fish that exact spot in College for Bat Rays, very successful in early mornings. I was collecting them for the NEW Sea World. They would pick then up in a truck with a big tank or send a boat over...they gave me one year free passes for each big type specimen I caught. I gave the a 5' Leopard Shark and 3 big Bat Rays over the 4 yrs I fished there. Obviously I should go back there!

    Thanks very much!!
