The warm late winter days coupled with some season air temps (low 50's average daily highs right now) have stirred the local schoolie bass around the parts of Barnegat Bay. Spots to look for these fish are very shallow water and around the mouths of the numerous tidal creeks. Also, don't be afraid to venture up some of the creeks looking for early season bass. You may just be surprised what you find and keep an eye on your depth. These creeks have some nice holes that are 10' deep or more! Great places to slide quietly around in a kayak.
