Early Prospecting?

I'm splashing the boat in the next week or so. With the mild winter, perhaps things in my area (western Long Island Sound) will get off to an early start.

Wondering if anyone else has the same idea and plan?

A reliable source told me he had jigged over 80 bass in four trips this season so far. He said in Rairitan Bay. Now this is SECOND hand, I'm not in the water yet!!!!

With these temps I'd bet you're both correct. JGH, local tackle stores reporting activity in our area. I'm not in yet and won't be for a while but I'd hedge our backwater muddy areas are producing. Hearing large spearing have been seen in my harbor with some activity at times seen at the surface. Both in the bay and harbor, I'd hedge CSH would do the same. Again second hand..... Good luck. I may actually try the beach here in the bay if given some time which this time of year should be put to the boat or yard.

The fish have been in for a while now. Guys chunking at night have been catching larger fish above 20lbs. Those of us using artificials during the day have plenty of schoolies to keeper size being caught in the usual spots.

Well, despite my plans, I've just gotten out once. It was this week. Poked around a couple of my usual spots with no luck. Hope to get out tomorrow.

Flipped the fly for a half hour in the back of Huntington Harbor this afternoon (off the marina docks) and think I got bumped twice but no takers. Working on the boat, hopefully in by end of month.

Hard to find a lee on this very windy afternoon. But managed a dink bass on a rubber shad in shallow water to open my season.

Here's to many more!

Didn't even try to go fishing today. Stayed home and tied flies after seeing the big blow today.
