Actually got out to this spot to try feathering for mackerel at the crack of dawn but fishing for 2 hours produced nothing! So I threw on a plug and started plugging. First signs of activity was what looked like a pollock jumping out of the water at my feet as I lifted the lure out of the water, quickly cast back out in the same direction and just as it passed over the same spot I got a take, I had the fish almost in but it gave one last head shake and it was gone. At least I knew there were some fish about, so I kept at it but another hour passes and I'm thinking of heading off and calling it a blank, but I gave it a few more casts for good luck and what would you know on my last cast I got the bass! After checking he was legal size, I dispatched the fish and gutted it, in the process he spat up a few sprats and it was interesting to see how similar my lure looked to what he was eating!
