8/9-8/18: Bass are here but very tough... even guys with eels are having a bit of a rough time getting them to eat, topwater has all but died the past 4 days, the full moon won't help either. Plastic on the bottom has coaxed a few to the boat. Plenty of scup/seabass/fluke... Bonito are here as well - east and West sides, and the word is out with a lot of boats running and gunning. Patience is the name of the bonito game, provided there are not to may knuckleheads pushing the fish down you can pick a spot and wait - you'll be surprised how many you can get. Three on the fly yesterday and two with a jumping minnow. White bunnies or 2-3" baitfish patterns. Crystal minnow and the assortment of metal/tin has worked as well.
