Fished 4 hours from eight to midnight, without even a touch! I fished rocks, open beach, and even ventured to a breachway. The wind was...wrong (E, NE)...but not terrible and the tides cooperated (outgoing). Full moon is fine this time of year. Others are catching...why couldn't I??? The only thing I can think, is I've seen lots of daytime fishing pictures on the various reports, and I fished only at night. And it was cold (38 when I got back in the car)! Given that water, measured by me, is only about 46 degrees in the surf, maybe fishing during the day right now is the ticket. I just can't accept that I am that unskilled or that unlucky, fishing shoreline I know very well! Above is the assortment I fished with. It's Carly's birthday this weekend, so I couldn't get out again, but had a great time with friends. I'm exhausted from two late nights, about already planning out the week. Hoping to get in 4 trips this week. Look for more reports soon!
