Took my son (10 years old) and his best friend from school out on the bay fishing. Also had his dad on board. Neither had done bay fishing before so I thought it would be fun for them. Started out off of Fiddlers cove marina and then slightly south of there for 8 spotties. Fiddlers was hot for about 20 minutes and went dead. Moved over to the flats off of 32nd street in national city just south of the elbow. Saw a few boats and many kayakers on the water. Bite was wide open in this area over a long drift on the flats pretty far off shore all the way to the channel. It was a large area of high concentrated bass for sure, they were stacked up in this region. We caught 52 fish in the next hour and a half in this spot. Took lunch and stopped, then put another 10 fish on board and released to hit 70 total in the next 30 minutes and called it a day after about 3 hours of fishing. Most of the people fishing left the area as we were all alone and had a blast. My son's friend was learning how to fish and he went from inexperienced angler to serious fisherman in a few hours. Fishing was wide open and we used our usual Ed Reis inspired grubs. We had a blast and could have caught even higher numbers if I was fishing more and we stayed longer. It was a day they won't soon forget!
