I am coming up this Friday. Is the bite better in the morning or afternoon. If it is good in the morning I may get an early start and get up there by 7am.

Thanks

Definately get out in the morning. You never know, sometimes we do better in the morning and the next day not catch anything untill mid-day.

I was out all day yesterday trying some reef fishing with some luck but nothing Great. We moved over towards Zippel around 2:00 and set up in 18ft. and ended up with a pretty nice bucket of fish. I was told the early morning bite there yesterday was real good. I would definately try the early morning in shallow. We didn't really have a hot lure but the rattle reels probably did the best set up with a plain hook and shiner.

Jason,

How high you setting those rattle reels off the bottom? I haven't had a fish on my bobber line in three trips. Must be doing something wrong!

Thanks

i use a bobber on 1 and jig with the other.i set my bobber about 4 to 6 inches of the bottom.if i see fish on the vex on the bottom and they wont bite i set the bobber just about on the bottom.that seemed to work the last couple times i was up there.

Doug,

I have been setting one rattle reel about 3" off the bottom and the other appr. 12-18" off the bottom so far this season. It has been varying daily but averaged out, they have been producing about the same. Usually though, 12"-18" is where I set them.

Yeah I think I've been running a bit low. Especially since everything seems to need to come up to eat lately.

Hope to spend more than a couple hours out and figure things out soon!
