I fished Johnson’s beach yesterday. Caught one pomp and one big sting ray using fresh dead shrimp.
My first drag for fleas broke my handle in half (rust) so I don’t know the flea availability. It was breaking right at the edge so hard to get to the lip anyway.
The June grass was an annoyance but not a deal breaker. Just had to take a clump or two off my line after reeling in.
I think it will just keep getting worse though.
