Getting Bigger and Spreading Out

I fished the oceanfront today in some very good conditions.  I landed nine stripers, but the big news is that I had one fish that was a near keeper (see photo) that I landed on a bucktail jig.  I also saw other near keepers taken.  It is obvious that larger fish are starting to mix in with the small schoolies that have dominated the scene recently.  I have also heard reliable reports of several keepers taken in the last week. The other good news is that the fish are spreading out. Many spots along the oceanfront are now producing, and I believe fish can be caught just about anywhere right now. Spring fishing along the oceanfront is now in full swing!
