Large pods of  mullet and peanut bunker  darkened  the water as they passed the boat.  We could hear, but not see,  the  striped bass exploding on the bait fish.  The mullet and peanut bunker  were seeking refuge from the stripers  in the tide covered marsh grass. We had no interest in catching  striped bass during this trip, but their performance did enhanced our fishing. The  weakfish had our attention from the first cast to the last today. “Drag screaming weakfish, describes today’s weakies. We caught them during a 2 hour window of opportunity.  It was a beautiful September evening to be saltwater fishing.
