    Current and weeds were a pain this afternoon in the South Bay. And the breeze didn't feel too bad in the parking lot...what's with the mini whitecaps?
    Might as well give 'er a shot. Mmm nice and warm..Made good time going straight into the wind but dang-o dang-o those waves hit the back of the U tube. Only thing dry was the top of my hat. Big boat's wake made the chop more consistent and less splashy.
    SPLASH wha...! Splash..
    Oh a big mullet a little ways off..mocking me through a series of jumps...it was getting serious hang time.
    Splash...got bass? No? Splash.
    Splash...sucks to be you...splash.

    Only got two taps the first hour then hookup...it's ON now!
    Seriously? A tiny diamond ray, foul hooked to boot.
    But eventually got nine spotties in 3.5 hours on the water. And the darn mullet came back for one last taunt...fully 2 feet long leaping straight at me from 20 feet away..a beaut.
    The bass were typical SoBay...8 to 14 inches.

    Thanks for the report.
    I was wandering if you used the lures in your avatar.
    Now I know.
