Back in the surf again this morning with Jim and Shay. I set out the usual assortment of rods. The crabs were slightly less ravenous today, but still tore up our baits. Of course I forgot to bring a rag along and made a mess of my shirt. Then a bloodworm decided to hose me with it's blood, adding to the mess that I was.
The fish were fairly cooperative today. We managed to land seven kingfish, a few spot, a doggie, two skates, and a brown shark. It wasn't fast and furious, but it was fun. And we we catching, unlike most everyone else fishing the beach.
We had the usual natural displays going on; dolphins crashing bait, ospreys picking off unsuspecting fish, a few small bird plays on small bait, and the usual assortment of beachgoing shoobies. The highlight of the trip was Shay battling the little brown shark. It dragged him down the beach and drew the usual crowd. Shay fought it like a champ while proud dad captured the battle on video. We tried for another shark, or big ray, but it didn't happen. Maybe another time. Given how cloudy the water looked today, it wasn't too bad. Hopefully it keeps improving...
Tight Lines!
