Awesome day yesterday (Dec 6th). Launched around 1pm in Sea Side and worked the water until around 6pm. Two guys, around 50 fish between us, 1 slammer blue, all the rest bass. 3-6 slots, 1-2 ‘tweens and 1 nice fish @ 16 pounds, 27". The rest were shorts.

The fish were feeding on peanuts and sea herring. Depending on conditions, I would encourage everyone the keep fishing through the end of December.

Hey, GM, great news, thanks for the report. Couldn't get out, or yesterday would have been a yak day for me for sure.

I bet this morning will be a beach day to remember - would SURELY get out, except I am tethered again.

16 # and 27"? That sounds like one FAT bass. I generally equate 15# to about 33-34". These guys must be pigging out on all that bait.

SH, actually it was just sloppy typing on my part. The fish was 37", not 27".

Nice fish, especially for THIS fall. Nice to know there are some bigger ones mixed in - looks like maybe the mix will be improving over the next few weeks...
