numbers may drop off but quality should improve, plenty out there just have to know where to go. if ur limited to shore fishing its going to be tougher, lots of competition. i suggest study google earth and try a couple of new places.
I'm finding that the males are smaller and the majority that I catch are females. Since I throw the females back (want to catch their offspring next year), and it's not worth keeping males that are just barely legal, I'm starting to feel like Charlie Moore (the mad fisherman) and his "catch and release" program.
