First report of 2016! I got a 7" shad on a 5" plug. I don't know how it planned to eat it. First time I got one on anything but a yellow teaser.

IBSP 2016 passes are in. They are bumper stickers again.

Thumbs down Re: January & Febuary 2016 Fishing Reports

Out this morning 8-noon.
Birds/fish came into reach 2x with only shorts for very few of the 50 or so blitz chasers that were out today.

Fri & Sat I know of 3 people who were mobile in the park for 6+ hours who came up empty both days.

I guess someone realized the window stickers were easy to put on another vehicle....

Or that cops kept pulling over people with them because the window sticker looks like a rejected inspection sticker with that red bar on it

Bill, it is time to stop now...did that help? Maybe the cold temps this week will

Did some bottom fishing the other day on a party boat. Overall a very slow trip plagued by dogfish and conger eels most of the day. Captain worked hard moving us from wreck to wreck but it seemed like the blow the day before shut down most of the action. A pick of smaller sized ling & cod for the boat along with a nice pool winning Pollack caught by one of the kids on board. Who better to win the pool than a young kid?

Highlight of the trip was having a nice sized lobster get fouled in my rig.

Naturally with a fresh lobster I had no choice but to go harvest some clams the next morning. A full moon tide with low around sunrise only allowed for an hour and a half of clamming. We managed about 100 clams each before we had to retreat to the incoming tide.

Nothing beats a fresh seafood Spanish Paella....clams, lobster, scallops, and shrimp all in one dish!!!

The all inclusive state park pass is still a window sticker.

OK, I have motive and opportunity to run to Seaside for a couple hours tomorrow morning. I'm going to throw plugs and such until I have to turn around and go home. I'll let you know...

Good luck. It's pretty much right time, right place.
It may have slowed down bu I wouldn't say it's over.

Hit the beach both Thursday and Friday, saw some birds on Friday but not a tap.
At one point I think I saw a rather rotund lady in the dunes carrying a microphone
