Essex River - Micro bait??
I was just about to post a question about the Essex River when I read the "micro bait" posting about Plymouth.
We saw the same behavior this weekend in Essex. LOTS of fish around, but feeding VERY selectively on somthing. I spoke to one angler who had good luck tossing half-and-halfs and clousers, which suggests maybe they were keying on small sand eels.
We tried everything - surface poppers, flatwings, clousers (large & small) and even a Crazy Charlie.
BTW, the greenheads were as bad as I have ever seen them.
