couple of bass on poppers; got a smash from a big Gar that bit thru the fluro leader right at the tactical clip; popper just floating; used my highly practiced casting skills to throw over it and hook it for recovery; talked to a guy working in Bass pro Shop and he was also from Jersey; sent me to a fave spot of his,,,small hidden farm pond; first cast; nice bass; it pays to be from Jersey...except at tax time

I dunked bunker & clams last night with the clams getting all the attention. Ended up with 4 fish, 1 was a keeper at 30". Lot of action missing a handful of other fish. Nice first trip of the season. Question for the guys using the gliders...are they a good shallow water lure not bottoming out often?

My limited experience with the gliders on my flats, 3-4 ft. Reach out to Rui, he will give you Expert advice.

Ventured out for my first trip of this year on the kayak in RB yesterday...gorgeous day in the morning with some wind up to 10 mph in the afternoon...water temps 48F on incoming in the morning and up to 52F on outgoing tides...aitr temps in mid 60ies...fish were scattered around...finished with 7 short with two being around 26"...in two occasions I found a nice dense schools of fish which were stationary for an hour or so...but they were all smaller fish or the large once were not eager to hit the lure...good to be on the water again
