from what i've been told - rats are around, at times in decent numbers

schoolies here and there, with a few bigger schoolie sized fish mixed in



bigger fish can't be far away

I caught one in Freeport on Sunday, so the fish are moving north. It wasn't very big, but as waters warm a bit, the bigger ones will come. Of course this weather isn't helping on that front!

Glad to see some action on Dan's site!

Got a pair in the Kenny today - about 40 miles from the closest salt. Schoolie sized, probably in the first pulse or two of fish to follow the alewives that far inland.

Observations as above. I was out in the Kayak about dinner time til dark and was doing pretty well. 6 to hand, nothing too large.
