Fished the flood tide, from and hours after after slack, for four hours. About 20 boats there, a few fish caught but not many. It appears that it is still a little early. We had 1 nook on for 5 minutes before if came unpinned at the boat. Fishing plug cut and whole blue label herring on 18" dropper, 6' leader, 5/0 hooks, rods in the rod holder, holding in current, sliding up and back and side to side. Lots of grass at the start of the flood tide. Checked gear evey few minutes. Seagulls were very aggressive. I would stick my rod tip straight down into the water to reel in. If it came to the top the gulls were on it. We snagged two by accident. Getting them off the line is tough, but getting them out of the net is a real nightmare :grin: Moved upriver above the lower bridge and bobber fished for 30 minutes at slack tide. Saw several boats doing the same. No fish taken. Water and weather conditions excellent. Wind OK, not bad.
