This was probably 10+ years ago when I first met Jim on the beach.

He has given me quite a few keeper fluke over the years off the beach as he generally doesn't keep them.

You can lead a horse to water, but you can't make him drink

Way before the Akios.

Time flies Jim, I started driving in 2005.

Before I know it...I will be standing on a beach saying "sure isn't like it was 50 years ago". lol

Hit the back this afternoon and only found sea bass from 3" to almost 15", all over the place.

Some snapper blues are harassing schools of bait, they are 8-11", but I stayed away, looking for either spot or tog, finding neither. Guys along the AC seawall were pulling in Seabass as well.

Once tide slacked the bite died and I went back to the "barn".

Beautiful day out.

Moco in the afternoon with a dropping tide out front. NW wind and a waist high swell with texture and a shore break. Lots of white water and backwash. I was using light casting gear with a hammered spoon and pink teaser. I caught seven short fluke on the first dozen casts with the fish being right in the wash grabbing the spoon as it was in the trough. No fish on the end of the long casts I was making with the wind at my back. Fluke bite shut down and then the small blues came in and I caught several. No bait observed, but towards the end a large pod of dolphins came in and stayed for half an hour 75 yards in front of me. I then caught what I thought was a hickory shad, but it seemed a little long. I got it back in the water quickly so there is some sand on the fish and its not a good picture. It fought much harder than any shad I eve caught and that forked tail makes me think I misidentified it.

I've never caught one . Seen some pics it obviously looks like one and it likes to eat shrimp so your pink teaser was in the right spot
