I have a mental picture of the ducks flying low, the CG cutter, and Bayyaker being the only ones there!

Glad you came by me and stole my fish

No, he just waited about a 10 count before starting to reel in. The wind and tide moved so hard slack line would have just bellied out sideways.

the rip yesterday at dawn; good amount of shad with smaller schoolies mixed it; wind was cranking; saw a big gull pick up a 14in shad and swallow it hole; talk about sushi; while we were there did not see any birds working at all; moved south and heard the reports of Albies showing in Sea Bright and Mon Beach; saw a few bursts at the Allenhurst jetty and Asbury; one in Allenhurst was about 30 ft off jetty and lasted maybe 20 sec; others were too far out; in my time here on the beach I have never seen Albies in this number....will be back at it after the storm next week; and Joe C my reports will continue only it will be tarpon, snook reds, etc

Out front OC from 4-930am. Was trying really hard to land a bass with no luck right when I was about to pack it in when I saw a couple of fish jumping 20 yards out. Threw a Hogy Epoxy on and holy moley, I?ve never caught an Albie before, I didn?t really believe the hype but god damn those things fight, probably one of the most exciting catches I?ve ever had. He was 26” and around 13 pounds. I might just ditch striped bass and follow these things down the coast lol.

Congrats, a 13 lber is a good sized albie. Been a while for me to even see one, no less get a shot at them.

Guys call it "albie fever" for a reason.

I forget which site I was browsing but a couple of years ago a a couple of people were arguing that Albies were over exaggerated and only good on light tackle. One guy even said that he could skip one across the surface with a VS250 and a 10? rod. No XXXXing way. My Slammer drag was screaming and it definitely wasn?t loose.

Moco 12P to 5p. NW wind that swung to the SE as the swell went from nkle high flat to knee high choppy as the tide dropped and then began to rise. Lots of rain fish in the trough. Hickory and small striped ones caught by several casters. I was on the fly trying aan intermediate line, which did not perform as well as the full sink I normally use. sure looked like it was going to be a good night for larger fish as the storm aproaches.

Decided to make a trip to Long island. Solid reports for the past three days.
Today was a beach full of a lot of guys making a lot of empty casts with the exception of a few hickory shads. There was reports of a short morning bite. We arrived around 330 and just walked off empty handed.
Threw the entire bag at em 3 times over.....

Fished from 5-9, I was hoping for more with this weather moving in, but the incoming tide is not one of my favorites, unfortunately I couldn?t stay with the rest of the Killer B?s. I didn?t get skunked, one short and one keep at 30 inches on the new Burple magdarter.
Still swimming.
