6/16 Schools of Flood Tide Striped Bass

We were greeted today with an incoming tide and just the slightest breeze from the east.

We ended finding our first few fish on single point that had a nice flow of water coming through. We then jetted off towards quieter water were we’d happen to find severel schools of bass inside
the basins and the open water just outside.

Some really awesome strikes with many fish following coming all the way to the boatside and going airborne as Brandon retrieved his surface plug.
After working several schools and catching several fish the tide was full and we started working the open water. Many times after the sun gets high the fish will pull of the banks onto the flats were they’ll hide in the grass beds. Once on the flat we saw a plethora of southern sting rays.

It’s a great indication of fish being nearby. Where there’s these rays typically there’s an abundance of life within a vast barren open flat….

The bass were right nearby.. We had a slightly breeze now a chop to the surface and took them on a variety of of surface plugs. Strikes came at an instant
