Got the first schoolies last week and took my first keeper today. It was caught in the upper Bay and not the oceanfront. Got it on a Zoom fluke fished off a jighead from shore. Only got two bass today but they were decent for this time of year. One fish went 25 inches and the other was 28 inches. From past experience, I think there are bigger fish to be had in the upper Bay than at the oceanfront in the early going. Maybe they are holdovers,; maybe they are bigger fish in search of herring.
