Fished Newport Bay this morning with one of our Berkley sales reps. The morning started out slow, no water movement. After the high slack, the water started moving and we started hooking spotted bay bass on #6 Trilene and 3" Gulp Shrimps in new penny with 3/8 Owner bullet lead heads. Fishing one of the back channels, Mickey hangs into a screamer- whoa, possibly a big bonita back here? Comes up flashing silver, its a freaking bonefish. 30 years fishing this bay and never seen one. Was about a 2 lb fish and put upo a great fight. Worked our way home for several halibut to 4.5 lbs and lost a bat ray. Fun morning before work. The key to fishing the Gulp shrimp was bounce it ever so slowly along the bottom. Watch for strikes on the sink too.
