Central OC this morning right after sunrise, start of incoming past high to start of outgoing.  Steady light NW wind.  Clean, green, sudsy water and good waves as described above.  
Saw small groups of mullet in the wave faces up and down the beach.  No fish in them.  Then the oil slicks of bait showed up on the farthest out bar just out of everybody's casting range.  Could see the cloud of bait in the wave faces out far.  I moved a mile or so north and the schools were there, too.  Don't know if it was bunker or mullet.  Could see something streaking through the schools.  Don't know if it was blues, stripers or the bait itself.  Eventually, I was able to drop a blue and white little neck popper into a school but nothing took it.  

After the school moved on I swam the popper and eventually found two blues, 3 or 4 pounders.  A lot of hours for a pair of fish.  Only saw 1 other blue caught earlier in the morning.  No stripers or fluke.

Spent a week on vacation in south Jersey...plenty of bass, both on foot and in the kayak.   Good amount of weakfish (nothing huge, probably all 16 to 20") and bluefish.   Tried getting my daughter on some snapper blues but they weren't cooperating

Do you fly fish from your kayak?

Stopped for fresh mullet this afternoon in CMC and hit the beach.  Nothing doing late afternoon. Looks good now though from here in the condo.
