Fish Spreading Out in the Bay

The Zoom fluke mounted on a
small jighead and fished off a float was the
hot lure combo today in the Bay.
I usually start fishing the Bay about a week after I start catching stripers along the oceanfront.  It's been about a week since the action lit up along the oceanfront so today I focused my attention on the Bay, hitting a few of my early season spots.  I did manage to catch a couple of schoolies on Zoom flukes fished off the float. So, I can report with certainty that there are some stripers in the Bay. I sense it is just starting as the first ones have begun to filter into the Bay. Expect the action in the coming days and weeks to pick up significantly as the Bay usually offers hot fishing from about this time into early summer.
