One more report for this week.. plan to be on a boat tomorrow.. At the light house at 5...Started at the rocks and picked up a schoolie... early outgoing tide... the problem is that I will not be able to get to this new spot until around 11 AM.. fished for a while and saw lightning in the distance about 6:30 and headed back to the car... took a nap while it rained heavily... My birthday today so my family gave me the whole day off.. after the rest ,went to "Top Rod" to look at flytying stuff and the owner and others were still talking about his shark report a couple days ago. Coffee after, then around 10:30 in light rain with no thunder clouds in the distance went out... walked to the spot... several casts later land a 35 incher... measured... a couple other bumps... then all of a sudden a north wind start blowing softly then hard with white caps and sea level raised, at least it seemed to me ,about a foot. Hightailed it out of there. Home by 12... still heavy rain... now to some sleep and tying.

Happy Birthday John!
Love your reports!
Happy Birthday John! What is it now, 35?
Congrats on another stellar year of stripers and blues in the surf, John. I hope your family served that striper pate cake with the sand eel candles and pogie oil frosting!
Happy B-day, buddy.

When the hell are you going back to work?
"Johntosaurus"...a specific wading biped carnivorous dinosaur with a determined stride common to sandy beaches and shallow estuaries, somewhat older than several Hawaiian and Icelandic islands...
Happy Birthday, you old fart!...I can't imagine being that ancient...How did you manage to endure the last Ice Age anyway? (mighty chilly back then...makes wading these days seem like a walk in the park)...
LET'S GO FISHING!
Seems like you wrapped up a great week of fishing in that area. Keepers every day. It can't get any better huh?

Happy Birthday John. 51 try 60. Just because we have sparse grey hackle doesn't mean we can't fish ! Great reports. Looking forward to fishing with you .
Congratulations and Best Wishes. Does this mean we have to hold presents until we return to CAC ? 8)
