Drove down to IBSP this morning at dark. On the way across Rt 70 I collected a deer. Deer and steel bumpers on 95 Jeeps don't mix too well. Jeep 1 - deer 0. Did have to replace license plates as front one disappeared due to impact.
OK, now fishing report. Met Bristol Lou and we started plugging at first light. Nice morning. Mullet going nuts in small pods. Tried poppers, nada. Swimming plug, bingo. Nice fat 25" and then a 33" fish. Measured off course. And although no pix, Lou did witness the larger of the two fish.
BTW, fish were right in the wash. You could see them chasing mullet in the shore break. The fish were caught by holding the plug in the wash and making it dance by the receding water at the end of the retrieve.
Let the games begin!

Found some decent Kingfish on Saturday up to 17 inches. Also found a blackfish hole and caught a bunch up to 13 inches all of which went back. Went out to the Shrewsbury Rocks with a buddy on Sunday and caught a 36-inch, 14.5 blue. Even though it was a boat fish it was fun!
Life may be sweeter, for this I don't know...

Fished nomoco this morning. Through every plug in my bag. Skunked again. four or five others out there, no luck there either. Clams, bucktails swimmers, poppers, NADA. Maybe tonight! Good luck to all of you. Doc

I saw two get hit Sun am and about 6 or 7 standing in the full moon early am. One totally destroyed a mini van on 195. Be careful out there guys the deer are def. moving.
Nice going on the fish, I tried to tell a few folks about the 'trickery', no takers they just mugged me and made it impossible to cast parallel. Mullet people, mullet.

NoMoCo this evening. No hits, no fish, no errors.
Water looked off color. Saw acres and acres of bait moving south. Nothing on em, just happy bait.
