Consider yourself lucky man. I was there Saturday night from 5:30 til 8:45 or so and I don't think a mosquito even bit me. Did ya happen to walk in the water and feel how warm it was......freakin bathtub assuming the water temp didn't drop too much over a 24 hour period. It didn't make much sense to me, I don't think we've hit 80 degrees more than a day or 2 this month so I was actually expecting the water to be pretty cold. Also been hearing reports of a VERY large school of mackerel offshore, not sure if it's true or not but if it is, that would make sense that the stripers aren't coming in to feed. I don't know what to tell ya man, all we can do is try right? Not much you can do even if ya have the right set up, bait, tide, moon phase etc if the fish aren't in. Give me a shout fi you'll e down this way next weekend as I plan on fishing Friday and Saturday night.
P.S. And here's hoping the water temps cool down 10-15 degrees.
