Yesterday morning we left the dock with calm conditions and a beautiful sunrise. Water was coming in crystal clear.
Cold temps from the night before had the bass holed up in ditches. They'd set up in these swings behind structure letting the tide bring the food to them.
The fish would strikes extremely light sometimes letting go and then come back and pick it up again. With perfect timing and a little bit of luck we'd have one hooked up. Same for the afternoon. The water warmed to 51 and the tide was slow to flow out again. The fish would drop the bait several times before hooking up or turning around back top their feed zone.
