Post your reports good or bad here.
We know it's summer so it's going to be slow.

Yep.
Gonna go see what I can find out front.
I've surprised myself at times. Ill take whatever is out there. Some bass are around, they just hide when the light hits. Fluke. Haven't run into blues yet this summer.
I haven't gotten my first stargazer this year They were eating my swimmers last year.
Artificials have been producing, just not consistently. Just have to work harder for it.

I find I learn more in the lean times, gotta think like the fish.

peanuts in our area are about 2.5" or so and growing... very thick in the back areas I frequented last week.

seems like the fluke pop is fully restored from all the reports I read

Only thing I saw this morning in the surf was the 2 brown sharks I caught.
The largest was 36" to the fork 20 lbs.
