I'm still in. I'll be at Morris Island sometime in the morning and will fish up until showtime. Should be a great day for it!
I wasn't there last year, so when you say the bluffs to the right of the stairs, how far to the right are we talking? By the mansions before the first corner? Or down near the entrance to Stage Harbor?
The farther you can cast, the easier it is for a fish to take you into your backing. I seldom see my backing . . .
