I woke up about 03:30 this morning, and the wind had moderated overnight, so I headed for a slightly sheltered Mount's Bay beach. I started out with a big whole squid on a pair of 5/0 hooks, and quickly caught a whiting about as big as the bait. It was just too big to cast, so I switched to frozen razors. From then on -- 04:30 to 07:30 -- I had a bass on almost every cast: five wee schoolies, and two of about two pounds each. When it was light, I could see that the water was very brown with rainwater run-off; but that didn't seem to bother the fish.
Tomorrow morning (per X/C Weather) looks a bit wild, but my fingers are crossed for Wednesday and Friday, when it's supposed to be a little gentler. The onshore winds certainly have kept the water reasonably warm.

Thanks for the temperature update. I know the water is warmish when I find myself standing in it to keep my toes comfortable. I find 11-12 degrees is when the bass start really going on the lures and the fly -- though I enjoy my lure- and fly-fishing most when the wind allows me to stand up.
