: South Beach - 5/16

Hiked South Beach from 6:30 to about 1:00. Today was the only day I could get away over the next few days. Constant, strong wind, directly from the east made the outside unfishable. Only a couple of brief periods of sun, so, sitefishing, even on the inside, was tough. A thick fog came from nowhere around 8:15, and it was gone 10 minutes later. My first time out this year. A few sub-legals from various spots in the tub. They were mostly sulking in the channels, and I had to work to find them. A couple of large striper carcases on the beach (from Thursday night?), so they're there! I envy you guys who can get out when the sun breaks. Should be great.
