When it rains it pours.... Had just a short window this morning so I took off for South beach... and wanted to check the oceanside.... since I was seeing birds everywhere... headed out along the beach going south and the sand eels were everywhere...landed about a dozen good stripers... all between 25 and 27 inches... lost a much bigger one in the crashing surf...which I saw to be 35 plus, estimated naturally... Had to leave to attend to some business at home so I am back on the 11:15 shuttle..... not bad for a few hours work...back tomorrow... will do the sweep going inside on the way back... but this was an outgoing tide situation.

John, it is oftentimes clock time on the water that counts, but more importantly, knowing where to go and when carries more weight. Good job and keep up the posts.

See ya in Sept.

Jim we miss seeing you out on the Flats. It won't be long now. The Ironman could use some competition. :lildevl:
