I'm just back from a few days a bit further south from there. Was trying my luck each daybreak in the surf, always saw fish & bait but didn't start hooking up until I started a more agressive retrieve. Jacks and pompano were common most mornings (bunch of other fishies that I still can't identify). #1 white deceivers and 1/0 - 2/0 angel hair flies, light blue over white and a fast retrieve got there attention. Have a feeling that poppers would also have been productive.
BTW, ff'ing from a yak would have also been very effective as the day went on....
Adrian, aren't the roosters very structure oriented? Work around the rockpiles and points?
