Arrived @ Gilgo entrance about 3:15 pm today - 4 trucks scattered near the entrance. Observed for a few minutes, nobody hooking up. Drove down east to the Cedar town line, one guy resting in his truck at the bar. Tried tossing a metal lip into filthy, dirty water, complete with eel grass on every cast... Plenty of plovers enjoying the sunset.

Did 5 casts of dirt & weed, drove further east to the Cedar line and found them. They were jumping everywhere - close, far, middle... No birds on them.

Tried the metal lip for gotz. Switched to A27 with green tube, bucktail, kastmaster, different metal lip, white darter - all for gotz!!! Was even throwing right into jumps, swirls, etc. I beleive the water was so filthy they could not see my offering. I found the fish but they didn't find me. Only 1 other guy in a white jeep was fishing by me doing bunker heads with no luck. The eel grass was not bad down by Cedar.

Had to leave by 5:00 to go see the wifey - casting hand was getting numb from the cold.

Give it a day or so to clear up a little - the cookie monsters are in for sure...

You should have stayed at Gilgo. Loads of shorts on bucktails and teasers.

I think u meant to say......... Stugotz!!!

LOVE IT!!!!!!!!!!

I pray I live to fish
Until my dying day.
When at my last cast,I
most humbly pray: When
in the Lord's great landing net,
peacefully asleep,That
in His mercy I be
judged, big enough to keep
