  1. Stupid question. I want to fish some back bays and a tidal river (Nissequogue), the banks have a lot of grass. Sometimes the grass is under water, sometimes not. Do I need to be super concerned about ticks? I am planning on coating my waders with Permethrin.
  2. So there is a spot I frequent close to home in the bay. It’s a night time only spot, my schoolie spot basically. When I plan to fish this location generally I bring smaller lures. Keitech’s, 1/2 oz or less buck tails, unweighted plastics and the such. I have caught many bass there but never one over 26”. This spring it’s been loaded and I mean loaded with adult bunker. Generally the seem unmolested but sporadically I witness some large splashes so I’m pretty sure there being preyed upon somewhat. In this location the water is almost always flowing right to left and to my left is a bridge, so this limits my casting presentation a little as far as being able to fish with or against the current. I’ve thrown larger stuff trying to match the hatch of big adult bunker but have had zero success doing so. Finally! If you made it this far my question is what would you throw in this situation? And are you retrieving with or against the current? Does that usually matter?
  3. So I picked up the new do it molds swimbait head jig to keep my busy over the winter. It comes set up for a new Mustad light wire hook, which was a little thin for my liking. I ordered some 5/0 VMC Barbarian regular wire hook and they fit with just a tiny filing around the hook eye. Can't wait to get these in the water come this March.
  4. Here's a little clip from my 4.5lb Flounder over the weekend. I ended up with a 22",19" and 18.5" on Sun. Went out again on Tues. but the water dropped from 72, to 63. I did end up with one 20" on Tues, but that was it. Hopefully water stays a little more consistent.
