Had a nice time fishing and an even better time relaxing over the weekend.
With temperatures in the low 70's and sunshine all day long it was the perfect time to spend the day on the beach.

The catch of the day came mid afternoon just as it warmed up enough to ditch the waders.

good times!

Its kinda funny cause it was on opening day for flounder and the striper was actually a bycatch.
It really caught me by suprise cause I was just minding my own business dragging a little 4" twister-tail
and then my reel just went f##king screaming!
Sometimes the pic dosen't do it justice cause I swear that fish was every bit of 20lbs.

Later that night I went back to that same spot with clams but after unhooking about 9 or 10 rays I gave up.
Anyone who fishes the surf knows how damn annoying that is!
You get a nice cast off and about a minute or two later you see those little taps on your surf rod and you know your freakin screwed.

awesome, on a twistertail? The pic does it justice. I was thinking 37"-39" 18lb-20lb, thats a nice bass for casting from shore! surf flukin needs another month.. backbays are still iffy. bassin in the back was hot for me friday night, looots of cookie cutter 30" fish which is the norm this time of year. gotta try the SJ surf out one of these days, the big ones should be there!
they down there

I did some back bay fishing and around the inlet too but there were no takers.
I'll be back down in two weeks hopefully

We've honed in on better spots over the past couple years, no more futile shit... they run bigger in the spring than the fall. heres another one for ya aki, back down last night, slower fishing but still decent, got 2 shorts a 30" 31" and a 14lb 33", lost 3 other bass, 1 felt short the other 2 woulda been keepers, strictly jiggin. also got a short fluke and missed somethig that left some interesting teeth marks in my zoom, if you know what I mean.

That's waaaay better spring shore fishing than the ones I've experienced.
I guess it won't be too long before you figure spring surf run fishes. Looking forward to hear some surf caught 30lbers.

Teeth marks... I think I get what you mean. Good luck chasing them in back as well.

~Had a drum trip canceled because of the lack of a bite. Instead my dad and I decided to head out to the wrecks on Friday. Though the NW wind was blowing and the seas were 4-5 ft. we still managed to catch! We ended the day between a group of guys with about 70 keeper sea bass up to 4 lbs. and a half-dozen cod. There were plenty of shorts as well. Plenty of drop and reel action with doubles as well!~

Blues should still be around. Maybe some kingfish in the surf. Tog on the rocks, maybesome porgies. If you have some heavy gear you can try for sand tigers at night.
