Made it up to the island around lunchtime on friday to fish the incomer on a beautiful afternoon. Not much going on for the first hour or two but towards the top of the tide, lots of commerants and terns starting pushing towards the beach. Wind at the back was a welcome addition for floating long casts into the surf. Picked up a few shorts and then BANG - had a hard take right at my feet and I'm clearing line and running up the beach. 5 minutes later I'm releasing my first PI legal, lauging and heading back to the car.

Went back last night and it was DEAD on the beach. Crowded despite the overcast and wind with noone hooking up except a few bait-dunkers on the river side. Big wind shift, lots of debris in the water. Saw a couple of big tails on the surface, but managed only one twink at dusk. What a difference a day makes!

Thanks for the report. Glad to hear more reports of solid fishing on the north shore lately... much easier locale for am/pm sorties' :devil:
