Eruptions in a film of water sending the bait fish jumping across the water as the bass corral and pin them across the shallow grass flats. This morning we intercepted these fish within minutes of leaving the dock.
Rapala Skitters sent aheand of the skiff to individual fish led to some arm jarring explosive strikes, reels singing, and line zipping across the flat.
For the rest of the day we found aggressive bass in a similar fashion. With clear skies, clean water, the fish were found on top water plugs feeding on the grass beds, sandy potholes, and working the current on the marsh ambushing the mullet as they swam through the spartina. Classic summer fishing in the backcountry.
