Caught a nice weather day so we shot about 20 miles out of CB inlet to jig up a few bass. We had to weed though a few smaller fish but once we got into them we had our 2 man limit of some nice knot heads and were heading home by 9:00am. All bass and the atlantic sharpnose were caught using big nic diamond jigs or JDs tackle squid jigs, no bait on any of the lures. The bigger bass were the ones suspended about 10' off the bottom. We also tried to drop bucktails at the dredge wreck to see if any flounder were home but literally could not get a bucktail to hit the bottom due to all of the 12-13" bass.
