    SE Bank was 60 degrees. Got some great marks and dropped a few different combinations on them for nothing. Cattle boat pulled up on us about 75 yds away and I didn't see them pull one over the rail either.

    Headed over to the double rigs and pulled in tight to them. Worked them with a variety of jigs as well as drifted a dropper loop of frozen squid and got nothing.

    Last stop was Izors. Started off slow until I tied on a Hook Up Bait then it went full speed for the next 30 mins until I was out of my two baits. One was chewed off by a sandie and one was lost to a nice line snap from an uncooperative thumb. Switched to a variety of swimbaits but the sand bass only wanted Hook Up Baits. This was my first time using them and I am about to call the company to see if they do discounts on bulk orders.

    Not much current anywhere today. Water temp ranged from 59-60 degrees most everywhere. Overcast with little to no wind and nobody on the water.

    Was amped on my new Phenix Elite Recon carbon fiber rod I got from Fred Hall. Paired it up with my Curado 200 and it is a great bass rod/reel combo that made the wide open sandie bite that much better.

    Finished with some fan casts along the NB jetty to see if we could get lucky on a 9th inning halibut but to no avail. We did have a thresher come up and tail whip our swimbait though which was fun to see.

    Try the MC slug for a cheaper option. I’m assuming they where eating it on the fall.

    All but one ate it on the fall. I did put on a MC slug but didn't get bit. Maybe we drifted off the spot by then. That was the first swimbait I put on after the Hook Up bait and MC is my go-to swimbait for most conditions. Corey was great to meet at Fred Hall!

    Corey’s awesome. Taught me everything I know about the saltwater bass scene. Was lucky enough to work with him when I was in high school
