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.
