Not weird.. big fish and small fish rarely mix.. .... the less fish in the biomass.. the less to migrate north.. simple as that.. fishing the block should ALMOST be illegal.. every fish that we see here in the north has to pass through there to get here... of coarse they have a ton of fish.. we get the educated culls... that said.. last week was the best week of the season... maybe the best in 2 years.. just every cast produced a hook up or a fish... .. the best part.. 9 days of fishing and only myself( and anyone with me) and a handful of surf rats got in on it... very few under 20lbs.. the top fish was 49-14... lots of 30's and 40's( lbs not inches) in between...
