I started out dodging floating docks and lumber of all kinds. Slow and easy is the only way to operate a boat at this time in the back bay waters. If your boat does not have a steel hull, expect it to be damaged if you run in the Ocean or the Delaware bay at this time. I found that most of the back bay waters are completely void of fish. The water temperature was between 45-54 degrees. I was lucky and found clean water, that was holding a few speckled sea trout. I had a few small stripers in the same spot yesterday. The upcoming North East storm could pretty much end the fishing season here. Time will tell.
