We picked at nice 6-14 lb blues, with lulls at times. There are plenty of fish around in both of the area s that we have been concentrating on in the last month, and some days are better than others, but there are still plenty of fish around so come on out and get your fall jumbo blues while it s hot!
It was a little bumbie out there today with a 20 to 25 knot northeast wind - we were able to pick at the fish on jigs bait. The range of size was a little wierd as we had fish from 4 lbs to 18lbs and not just one of each but many of each size.
