Bonus steelhead on this trip.

Crowds aren't an issue if you're willing to hike a mile or two through the woods!
Great pics JB!

Quick evening trip to the surf with wife and dogs... there were some smooth doggies running the very very rough surf. Hits every cast with fishbites, and just some small blues harrasing my mullet rig.

Of course it was a beautiful day until we got down there, and saw the fog/clouds roll in off the ocean... perfect for me, not so much for my guests

Dogs had a blast, tons of surfers still out, water is still warm.

Hope to do a backbay trip on Friday, but work is getting in the way

Storm surge is still very strong down here, was amazing at low tide how far the ocean would run up the beach on our flat surf when those big swells would come in. Very visible how bad the rip currents would be.

Struck out over the weekend in the back. Hit a couple of new spots that could be better in the spring, worked some shadow lines under a few bridges and then had a nice peanut blitz in the morning with mostly small fish on them but a few larger ones in the mix, couldn't buy a hit. Even the guy next to me doing the snag and drop came up empty. Still cool to see that much bait around.

It'd be nice to run into a peanut blitz down here, even if I got skunked.

Always did best trying small poppers at the edges if possible, but I'm sure you and the other guy tried that!

Down here, I can count on one hand the number of surf blitzes I've seen in 15 years. They must happen, but not when I'm around....

I was out at sunrise this morning and fished the big surf out front in Stone Harbor. NE wind blowing sand down the shoreline, blasting the shins on the tidal beach. Managed a few dogfish just after sunrise on clams, but that beats the skunk I had yesterday a both low and high tides. Using BIG hooks that I feel the snappers picking at, but too little to get the hook in their mouths

I did work a popper, may have been too big or not the right color who knows, figured I'd have success with a 3/4 yellow bucktail and the yellow teaser and working under the schools but when the snag and drop guys were striking out knew it was going to be one of them mornings. It was hard to find the edges, there were like 6 to 8 big schools of peanuts getting harassed.

Sometimes the only thing that will work in those situations is going EXTRA large and standing out or ripping in a lure extra fast (like an SP minnow).

Gotta stand out or try for the reaction strike

Colder weather just over the horizon... fall is coming and I do look forward to the prospect of my first nice striper of the season. Yes!

Hit NoMoco surf yesterday from 4-6PM, worked a mile or so of beach during the outgoing. Got into a good school peanuts within casting range and was getting small blues every cast on a small epoxy jig which was dropped directly ontop of them. Nothing bigger than 12 inches or so. Was hoping the big dogs would show up, but it never happened. The water was clear, calm, and still pretty warm.

JB is right, you gotta stand out. Try a krocoadile spoon, cast on the edge of the pod and just let it flutter down to the bottom, the wide body and curve of the spoon makes it look like a injured peanut. don't reel, just drop it, again and again. I have caught blues, bass, fluke and weakies with this. JB, remember that big fluke I gave you when we first met, fell to a Kroc

Jim, are you saying that JB was accepting fish from other people because he could not catch them himself?
