Had to try again caught a 42” with a 30” girth! Maybe heavier! And a 37” and a little flathead and a couple in the teens. Crazy.  I’ve a caught 200 or so blues here, and have my 2 biggest on back to back days steady bite on incoming tide. Didn’t have all rods in the water for the first hour. When tide was in and went slack , no more bites
