Comments:

Fished wading River on Fri. Night from the Creek all the way to herod point. VERY SLOW. Didn't see anyone hookup.

 

Sat Morning along the open beach in Shoreham had lots of bass on the beach. A few fish were rolling in the wash on small bait. All the fish were tight in the wash. Bass were only in the 18 - 26 inch range, but the action was fun. Top half of the outgoing was best as expected at the structure holding the bass (Small local point studded with boulders). Small teaser caught most of the fish, a small 1/0 white deceiver type streamer fished ahead of the larger lure.
