Fish Spreading Out

I hit the Upper Bay today and tried a number of spots in different locations. I caught fish in every spot I fished. It tells me that the fish are now spread out throughout the Bay, and they can be caught just about anywhere. The fish I caught today were also decent size with many of the schoolies running 24-25 inches. I got no small ones. As usual, the hot lure was an albino, fork tailed, Zoom fluke mounted onto a small jighead. You want to cast this lure out, let it sink and reel in while bouncing the rod tip. Many of the hits seem to come as the lure is dropping down after the bump upward. Looks like a big schoolie weekend is coming as the fish are now around in good numbers in 'Gansett Bay as well as along the oceanfront.
