Line side: Fair!

The Super Moon we had this past weekend really did slow down the bite.  The fish are still in the places they were last week, but just on the finicky side right now.  The bite should pick back up before the weekend and hopefully we will be back to catching good numbers.

The fish will be staging on the flats and schooling up at areas like the Delta.  The mouth of Little River should be loaded with stripers and hybrids.  There has been a good early morning topwater bite in the Little River area, and there’s also lots of action on top at Victoria Landing by the sailboats.  Again the Super Moon slowed this bite down, but I look for it to pick back up any day now.  Also, look for fish from Iron Hill to the spillway.

Fish flat-lines and planer boards early, and then switch to down-lines dropped to between 18 and 24 feet.  Bait has been a pain to catch this past week due to the full moon.

A Mack’s four-arm umbrella rig with chartreuse jigs pulled between 2.7 – 3.1 mph is good once the sun gets up.  While you’re trolling, keep your eyes open for white bass coming up in schools, and have something ready to throw to them.  A Rooster Tail or Zara Spook are both good.
