JJ...great to see; we have all been waiting for those pics; I'm going out mid-week...were you out front?? in back?? inlet or jetty?...just a general idea not actual spot

report from a reliable source; friend picked up about 20 shorts and two keepers in an inlet jetty pocket; keepers were a "stunning surprise"; saw a lot of bunker

Me too man...the fish were not around the areas where they were in 2016 that's for sure...the kayak guys got beat up by weather conditions and lack of consistent bite...I've heard some getting it done on artificials already so I'm feeling optimistic...hobie is ready

I know exactly what you mean. Long term forecast shows NO MORE NIGHTS BELOW FREEZING! Water temps are slowly rising. GAME ON!

Good luck with the new boat.
