: Bayside 8/4 am

Went directly to flatrock trough and fish were breaking as I stripped off line. Saw enough busting fish to sustain interest but no takes. Tried a small popper, Deep Eel, and a sparse flatwing sandeel. Lots of bait around and a little variety too. Saw small silversides and small wide bodies (bunker I guess) in addition to the usual sandeels. Have to reassess my fly selection, mix up the retrieves, etc. Confidence is going to hell and a handbasket.

Yaked a bayside flat. Friend got one blondie. Nada for me, know what you mean about the confidence. Saw lots of action at another beach which was too far to paddle. Traffic coming home was terriable. FishHawk
