Went back last night. Water temps must be rising. A bunch of small sting rays being caught. I ended up with one more Sargo and a yellowfin croaker. All were caught on bloodworms. Nothing bit the market shrimp. 20220609_234012.jpg

How late is the night fishing session? I've been meaning to go try it out but the cold usually gets me. (I get the runny nose. (n))

I usually fish from 8pm to about 1am. Last few days its been comfortable and no wind. As summer comes along it gets very comfortable to fish at night.

Also my catch ratio has been off the charts when I throw my bait towards the rocks. Their is a bunch of eel grass that holds more fish. Plus fresh bait helps.

Fished 6/13/22 from 9pm to about 1130pm. Tide was high. From 9pm to about 10pm I caught 13 Mackerel using a glowstick and squid for bait, then the mack bite shut down. Then fished towards my favorite spot and caught 3 short spotted bay bass and one legal bass. Overall the bite has been good for me. 20220613_214648.jpg
