There is a LOT of bait holding up in the ponds of South County right now. An afternoon jaunt to take a look will likely result in finding schools of peanut bunker, silversides, bay anchovies, mullet and other mixed small striper and bluefish feed. By day you can find a mixture of small bluefish in the 2- to 4-pound range, schoolie bass to about 10 pounds and even some bonito feeding on this buffet. By night, expect to find both bass and blues moving in with some larger bass adding into the mix with each passing day, especially if we see some big surf out front as the hurricane makes its way up the coast heading into the coming weekend.
