What happened to fishing in the dark in May 2019?

KGB and I fished the Sedge Islands in pursuit of Bluefish in the first week of May.

Instead I found a couple of bass, one worthy of a photo, just about 28".


In the middle of May Steve and I headed South to the Va. Beach area to fish for giant Reds - weather permitting.  Weather only permitted the last of three days.  The other days we fished the back bays of Lynnhaven and Rudee inlets respectively.  A cold front had just moved in and apparently shut the bite down.  We set up camp at First Landing, which was convenient and pleasant, in spite of the noise from the military exercises.  

Unfortunately, between the two of us we only managed one keeper Spec in the back bays, and one snagged ray out front off the point of Cape Charles.

Fast forward, then rewind a little, and a little bit of fishing redemption from a spring full of lack-luster trips, forgive me if I might slip a little early June into the May report.

Eventually KGB and I found the bluefish at the sedges.

It took some time and a lot of moving around to find them, but we did in a couple of spots.  

We also both had short bass and Hound-fish.

It was very windy mid-day.
