|There are lots of small blues|
in the Bay. Most are under a foot long.
|Scup were also abundant as they were|
under the schools of small bait.
We've got the bait, but I'm guessing the warm water in the Bay is keeping the stripers away. In most of the places where we ventured in the mid and upper Bay the surface water temperatures ran from 75 to 77 degrees, way too warm for most fish. But, things are looking up. We just might get a run of stripers in the Bay this fall once the water cools. I also think we will see fireworks along the oceanfront later in fall when all that bait in the Bay hits the oceanfront as it migrates southward.
