Left the slip ca 9:00, start of the flood. Water 60 degrees. Went out Swift Creek to the Big M looking for signs, then to JI and west towards 40' and to Pink Hotel to the middle of town then back in 25' to JI. Water temp 55. Saw zero birds, no bunker on top or below and oddly little bait in both the bay and ocean. Printed only a scattering of fish. Trolled deep divers.

Two head boats were inside just off Woodcleft and Hudson. Very few boats out. About 6 boats out by the tankers to the west. Report from Debs said some bunker there in the company of blues.

Water was flat - 1 to 2' swells spaced 4-5 seconds apart. Thanks to the rain lots of crap in the water off Long Beach. Hudson Canal was the worst I've seen it other than Sandy. Mats of weed. plastic bottles, etc. Had to weave my way in the canal.

Tomorrow has to be better - Right?

Our area is crap now... take your boat out and dump it in inwood park you'll have no problem catching bass.

Where were you and when were you out. For one when I was out there were only 2 other boats off Long Beach. One in transit and the other and I exchange info and he also had zilch.
