    Haven't posted in awhile...not much happening over the past couple weeks. Today wasn't much different. Only picked up 3 spotties, but 66.67% were legal.

    Started out w/ creature baits, no action. Switched back to the tried-n-proven Keitech and felt the tiniest little tick on the line. Let it sit for a second or two and started to retrieve, another tiny little peck. I guessed it was a small tail biter that probably chomped the paddle off the back of the bait so I started reeling in to switch baits, but noticed some tension on the line. OK, must have picked up some salad. Reeling...little more tension; reeling...more tension; reeling...whoomp - full bendo. Same thing with the over fish. Barely felt the tick on the line and then whoomp - bendo. Fish definitely not feeding aggressively.

    Nice going, you can't beat a 67 percent rate for legal spotties.
