There is so much good looking water out there ,but I decided to focus on an area that looked promising. The water just started turning, high tide going out. I went into the weed areas with Rattlers and found them. What a blast'.....Finished the day with one keeper on jigging, one on trolling, and 14 keepers on Rattlers.. and a whole lot of shakers. Most of the keepers ranged from 19 - 23 inches, but I did get about 3-4 in the 7 lb range. Conditions water clear, certain areas has debris floating, overcast with smoke of course, temp cold most of the day.I think water temp was about 58*f. Lot of boats out there. The parking lot was full to the brim and then some.Pictures won't post again, sorry.There still out there.Out

    Trying to add some pictures...
    OK, I think I am able to upload some pictures. Hopefully I figured it out again.
    The pictures are one of many that I dragged out of the weed Saturday and one shows how hungry one was.
    Also I tried other lures in the weed area, but the rattle trap, was able to cover the most distance , the quickest.
    My target was only to keep it down about one foot.
    OK, hope these pictures post.

    It has been the jigging, but you know how that goes, you have to find them first.
    I'll continue there for a while. You know the saying, you don't leave fish to find fish.... normally.

    Out
    I've done really well on the fish that are chasing silversides or smelt with believe it or not, a bass spinnerbait with a thin swimbait threaded on the hook. Or a fluke if you have any around, goodluck, can't wait to see the results of your next report out there.

Hopefully you get some more action next time out! Have you noticed the fish chasing bait lately? I've been hearing reports of fish busting on delta smelt type bait, or maybe silversides.
